Privacy is of utmost concern for most computer users, in both home and work environments. Wise Folder Hider can help you safeguard your privacy by hiding selected folders and files. Moreover, it also supports hiding external drives.

This application has a nice and straightforward interface that allows managing hidden elements. Luckily, it supports drag-and-drop operations, which means that any element dropped onto the interface will be automatically hidden. In addition, you can also perform the same hiding operation by using such interface buttons as Hide File, Hide Folder and Hide USB Drive. More than just that, the program can be integrated into Windows contextual menu.

This tool uses security algorithms to encrypt the information contained in hidden files. Besides, it allows using a master password to prevent unauthorized access to the application. If that does not seem enough, you can also set specific passwords for individual files or folders.

To sum up, Wise Folder Hider can perform basic operations related to hiding particular information. Consequently, it may satisfy the needs of undemanding users. Unluckily, it does not show more sophisticated features, such as creating an invisible virtual drive. It is too bad that Wise Folder Hider Pro, the paid version of this application, is not available for testing as some of the features you are looking for could be found in it.
