Protect and hide folders, files, drives. Security tools for hiding your files, folders, and drives.

How can protection be automatically activated after a certain idle period?

An option is available that activates protection when your computer has been idle for a specified period. This is useful when you are away from your computer and forget to activate protection manually. After the specified period, the program will switch into Stealth Mode if the Security > Stealth Mode option is on.

To enable automatic protection activation, please follow these steps:

  • Select the Options... > System idle settings... command from the menu.
  • Check the Activate protection if idle checkbox.
  • Use the Interval field to specify the idle time after which protection should be activated.
  • Click OK.

Now all your folders and files will become unavailable to others after the computer has been idle for the specified time.
