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

Stealth Mode

In Stealth Mode, the Universal Shield installation becomes invisible to all users-the desktop shortcut, Start menu shortcut, and Program Files folder for Universal Shield all become hidden.You must use the hot key functions of Universal Shield to access the program in this mode (see "How to Set Hot Keys" and "Set Hot Keys"). For more information, see "How to Use Stealth Mode".

When using Stealth Mode, make sure you remember your hot key combination, as you cannot start Universal Shield from the Start menu or Program Files folder. If you use Stealth Mode and forget your hot-key combination, you'll need to contact Universal Shield technical support for assistance (see "Universal Shield Support").

Turn off Stealth Mode if you want to access Universal Shield from a desktop shortcut or the Start menu, but be aware the presence of these icons may let others know how you are protecting your drives, folders, and files.
