Lock and Hide Folder icon A reliable and user-friendly piece of software that helps you hide folders so they cannot be seen or accessed, while allowing you to run the app in a stealth mode

Lock and Hide Folder is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you hide your sensitive information from prying eyes, so that it can’t be seen or accessed by unauthorized users even if you activate the "View Hidden Files” feature.

User-friendly layout

You are welcomed by a clean feature lineup where you can build up a list with the folders that you want to conceal. The directories can be added in the working environment using the built-in browse button, so you cannot rely on the drag-and-drop support.

Hide folders

Lock and Hide Folder gives you the possibility to hide multiple directories, delete items from the list, as well as hide or show all folders or only the selected ones.

Configuration settings

Lock and Hide Folder offers support for several tweaking parameters that help you run the utility at Windows startup, activate the stealth mode when the program is opened or minimized, as well as enable preset hotkeys (they cannot be reassigned).

What’s more, you can password-protect the app with the aid of a master password which is needed when you run the program, activate the hotkeys for hiding or showing all hidden files, and disable the stealth mode.


Tests have shown that Lock and Hide Folder carries out a task quickly and without errors. It leaves a minimal footprint on system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.

Bottom line

All things considered, Lock and Hide Folder comes bundled with a handy suite of features for helping you hide your private information, and is suitable for all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
