A simple method of protecting your confidential data and sensitive files against prying eyes is to hide the folders containing that information. In order to do that with ease, a specialized tool like Wise Folder Hider is more than welcome.

Wise Folder Hider is a straightforward utility that makes hiding directories a really simple and easy job. This neat little application can in fact hide not only folders, but also separate files, or even entire flash drives. Furthermore, it allows you to assign a password that will lock the access to this application. Only those that know the password will be able to open and use Wise Folder Hider. This additional layer of security makes this application even more trustworthy.

Wise Folder Hider is also very simple and easy to use. Even complete beginners can use this tool without any problem thanks to its intuitive and straightforward interface. There’s also convenient integration with the Windows Explorer’s right-click context menu: Wise Folder Hider can quickly hide files and folders just by accessing the related entry from their right-click menus.

To sum it all up, Wise Folder Hider is a nice data hiding tool and the fact that it’s free makes it even more desirable. It’s not as safe and reliable as sophisticated data encryption software for corporate needs, but for simple, casual, personal needs, it will do just fine.
