Free Hide Folder Review

Tina de Pierre
Computer security software to hide your private folders
A review of Free Hide Folder by Tina de Pierre

Free Hide Folder is a small Windows application which can hide and protect folders on a Windows filesystem such as FAT32 or NTFS. It prevents unauthorized access by setting a password.

Upon first launching Free Hide Folder, you will be asked to define a master password. Afterwards, you can hide a folder by right-clicking it. After hiding the folder, it will no longer be visible within Windows Explorer and will only be accessible by running Free Hide Folder by entering your password. The main interface will display a list of hidden directories.

The application is also able to secure previous states as a backup.

Overall, this application is basic and performs its basic functions without issue.

Free Hide Folder features and highlights:
  • Hide your folder completely: Unless you unhide it yourself, nobody can find it
  • Password protection when running program
  • No file system structure modifications needed
  • Any number of folders may be hidden at the same time
