Wise Folder Hider is an application designed to make files and folders invisible to other individuals using the same computer. This way, private information stored on local or removable drives is kept away from prying eyes.

Since the program is intended to perform a single task, namely hiding photos, videos, or documents, the interface is neat and easy to use. When first opening the tool, you are asked to generate a master password; you need to recall and type it every time you access the application. Then, all it takes is choose the files, the folders, and the USB drives meant to be hidden. The selection can be done either by pressing browsing buttons placed on the upper bar, or easier, by using the drag-and-drop option.

The data will remain hidden to other user; from here on, you will access your hidden files and folders only from this program's window. To reinforce the protection, you have an ability to set a new password on each record.

All in all, this is an easy-to-use tool, created mainly for home users. Although your personal information is protected twice, both by master and secondary passwords, it is recommended to use stronger encryption when dealing with business and commercial related data.

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.
