Folder Locking:
Folder Lock enables you to create a locked area in your system memory and then save important files and folders in that Lock. A master password is required for using this security technique. You can check the strength of your entered password and hence make it stronger. After that you can add files, folders and drives to this Lock by browsing your system memory. Later on, it is also possible to unlock items and turn protection on or off.

Data Encryption:
You can now encrypt your important files to make them secure. Even if any intruder gets their hands on that particular file, he will not be able to understand what is written in the file. First you need to create a new Locker by entering its name and location and then it can be used for saving encrypted files. This Locker can be opened by entering the password and then you can edit its content, close it and can create its backup for retrieval in case of accidental deletion.

External Media Protection:
With the help of latest update in Folder Lock, the protection of storage devices is no more an issue. You can protect your USB by creating portable Lockers in your USB and save all the files in there that should remain safe. Protect CD & DVD Media option provides the same facility but the only difference is that it burns your created Locker to CD/DVD. When sending attachments in Emails, it is preferred to use Protect Attachment feature for encryption of Emails.

Password Wallet:
Folder Lock provides you with a safe virtual wallet where you can save all the other passwords. This will help you get rid of worries about forgetting the passwords and at the same time, they will remain away from access of anyone else.

File Shredding:
You can quickly shred empty spaces and confidential data files. The files that are needed to be deleted permanently are added to the Shred. Furthermore, you can clean history of your computer with a single click. This will remove temporary files and history of various applications.
