Personal information includes personal information such as a real name, resident registration number, and telephone number, as well as personal files and work files stored on a PC. In particular, photographs and videos recorded with the privacy of the user are seriously damaged when leaked. In addition, it is recommended to put ‘locks’ in advance for files that other users should not open.
Look at some of the folder security programs that add locks to important folders so they are not visible at all, or that you must enter a password before you can enter the folder.
1. We have only selected Folder Lock / Folder password program not introduced by ‘Special Review’.
2. The below folder lock program is not for backup purposes. It is recommended to copy / back up important files or folders separately.

A Live Scanner is a simple program that hides a specific folder (program installation folder) like a safe. If you download the installation file and proceed with the installation, you will have to enter the password twice, which will be used later to open and lock the ‘Safes’ folder.
When the installation is complete, the ‘locker’ folder is created in the program installation folder (eg C: \ Program Files (x86) \ LiveLocker) . Now run the Live Scanner, then enter the password (entered during installation) to open the locker folder and copy the files you want to hide.
After completing the copy, click the ‘Folder Lock’ button and the locker folder will disappear from the Explorer. Of course, this folder and the files in the folder do not appear when I search.
If you need to reopen the folder, run the Live Scanner, enter the password, and click the ‘Open Folder’ button. If you exit the Live Scanner without locking the folder, you will be prompted to lock the folder first.
