Folder Vault is a file protection tool which prevents unauthorized access to data you deem sensitive. It encrypts data you select and puts it behind a master password which must be entered in order to access the data.
Upon initial installation, Folder Vault creates a default folder where encrypted data is stored and within the folder you may place any type of file you would like to hide from prying eyes.
The actual application can run behind the scenes in stealth mode to avoid being detected by hackers. You can also configure Folder Vault to do things after a number of failed attempts like turning the computer off.
Every time you run a new session of this program, you must enter the master password in order to access the files it has encrypted. Each time you close a session, the data is locked. Simple and secure.
Installation note: During the first few steps of installing Folder Vault on your PC, you may be asked to install 'additional offers', all of which are unnecessary and we recommend declining.Folder Vault features and highlights:
