Admit it! We all have files that we dont like others to see, files that we cant delete but still hide from the eyes of any outsider.

I’ve personally tried many of the   leading privacy apps both paid and free. After 1.5 years of testing concluded the best privacy software out there:


Yes Newsoftware’s Folderlock is the best privacy app for windows and it comes with virtual drive technology.

Folder Lock is a full-suite data security solution for Windows 8, Windows 7, Windows Vista and Windows XP (including their 32 and 64 bit variants.) Folder Lock has been the world leader in data protection with more than 25 Million downloads so far. It is the most comprehensive solution for data security available on the internet.


  • Lock Files
  • Encrypt Files 

Folder Lock can create an unlimited number of Lockers, for you to store your important files. These Lockers are portable; can automatically expand depending on how many files you dump in; are fast and can be treated as a normal drive or folder. All data is encrypted on-the-fly with 256-AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) algorithm. Encryption is on-the-fly and decryption is automatic at run-time in memory, leaving no traces of the data on the hard drive.

  • Secure Online Backup (Only if you paid version)
  • Protect CD/ USB (make portable versions which can be copied to pendrives or external hard disk)
  • Make Wallets to keep private information
  •  Shred Files
  • Clean History
  • More…

Furthermore, with additional features like Hack Security, Stealth Mode, Auto Protection, Password Security, and Virtual Keyboard, Folder Lock enhances data protection beyond anything ever achieved.
