Automatic Protection
The tool activates protection after a certain period of time. If you have left your PC idle for a certain period of time, the protection is automatically activated. You can set the time period that is suitable to you and have complete peace of mind knowing the tool has got your back.

Safe Mode Protection
One way or the other, the prying eyes make numerous attempts to access your private files. One way of doing that is through the safe mode. Again, the app stays one step ahead by letting you use this feature. Even if someone boots your PC, turning ON this feature will restrict them there and then.

You can protect your executable in two ways. The files that you protect using FolderProtect can be further protected with the feature of ‘Deny Access’ and ‘Prompt Password’. The deny access feature will make the executable inaccessible and can only be accessed until this feature is deactivated. In the same way, you can use the ‘prompt password feature’ to access the particular executable.
