Keep Your Files in a Secure Locker

Protect your files, folders and removable drives on-the-fly with secure password. Get instant access to protected data, lock and unlock folders with a hot-key. Protect Folder creates protected folders that are like a password-protected archive - only they don't need an archiver!

Transparent On-The-Fly Operation

The encrypted files and folders will appear to you as any other file or folder would. You don't need to run an application, decrypt your files somewhere, and then put them back into the encrypted container. Protect Folder allows you to see and work with your files and folders just as you would with any other file or folder, performing all decryption and encryption on-the-fly in the background and completely automatically.

Stronger than ZIP

Protect Folder provides stronger security and better protection for your data than an encrypted ZIP archive. No one can even see your files' names without knowing the right password! No unprotected traces are left on the computer after you lock your protected folders.

Instant Security

Assign a hot-key to lock all protected files and folders instantly for added protection.

Travel Light. Work Fast.

Leave your computer at home! Take a USB flash drive with you. Protect Folder encrypts your entire removable drive transparently on-the-fly, and does not require any extra software to access or modify protected files. You only have to enter a password once to lock or unlock the entire drive!

Just plug your USB stick and enter your password to access your files instantly. Pull the stick from the PC, and all your files and folder will be locked automatically. And remember: without the password your files and folders are completely inaccessible and are of no use to anyone but you!

Convenient Operation

Protect Folder is not just more secure, but also more convenient than password-protected archives. No need to install Protect Folder to access a protected USB stick inserted into a new PC. No annoying file or volume size limitations. Compare Protect Folder's lightning speed with a typical ZIP archiver, and there will be no going back for you!
