Wise Folder Hider is a small and handy utility that can hide files and folders on your system and protect them against prying eyes. Besides files and directories, this handy application can also hide entire flash drives. It’s a great tool to protect data against unwanted access.

Wise Folder Hider is a reliable data hiding solution as it’s protected using a trustworthy double password mechanism. The application can be opened only by you, by providing the right password, and hiding/unhiding files also require inputting a chosen password.

Anyway, the most important advantage of Wise Folder Hider is the fact that it’s very easy to use. Files and folders can be added to its interface by drag and drop. The interface is very simple and straightforward, even complete beginners can use it without any problem. Furthermore, the program allows hiding files and folders directly from the Windows Explorer’s context menu, by right-clicking them and selecting the corresponding menu option.

To sum it all up, Wise Folder Hider is a good tool to quickly and easily hide personal files and folders containing private data. Anyway, for corporate needs, powerful encryption tools are still a better choice.
