Wise Folder Hider is a privacy protection tool for Windows. The application is designed to hide folders and files of any type, like photos, videos, documents, and anything that you want to keep private from other users. It can be used to hide files in local or removable drives, and due to its simplicity, it is clearly designed for home users.

The application uses a very simple method to hide and encrypt your data. As with any app of this kind, you are first asked to generate a master password that is required every time you attempt to open the application. Then, all it takes is add the files and directories you want to hide; which can be done even by dragging and dropping items into the program window. The files you decide to hide will appear on a list in the main window and from there you can work with every item individually, protecting each one with a new password to reinforce protection, unhiding files, etc.

Another way of quickly hiding files and folders on the spot is through the option in the context menu, which is even faster and easier than the previous method.

In short, Wise Folder Hider offers a simple and quick solution for those who want to prevent other users from snooping in private data. It hides files and folders efficiently and without complications.

Guest For all whose wondering, you don't actually have to un-hide and re-hide an item to get it hidden again like this article states. Just exit the program and all files will be automatically set to hide again, you're not meant to have to manually re-hide all your files.
