Wise Folder Hider is a freeware used to hide your personal folder(s) or file(s) to somewhere else in your PC or in removable devices, in which way you can protect your privacy with passwords by following easy steps. It is recommended for home and personal use instead of hiding commercial/confidential information which may need further strict encryption. Wise Folder Hider is the No. 1 freeware to hide folders and files including videos, photos, etc. for personal use.

Why choose Wise Folder Hider?

Protects Your Private Data from Prying Eyes
Wise Folder Hider is designed to password-protect your folders and files from being seen, read or modified by the priers. It provides enhanced security for files and folders on your Windows PC, blocking the unauthorized access of your private files or folders. It is an ideal utility for those who are concerned about the security of their personal data.

Second Password Makes Your Hidden Files & Folders Double Secure
The app offers users an optional higher level of security. Users can set a second password for each of the files and folders are hidden by the tool. For those who have some real confidential files, they can rest assured knowing that their hidden files are double secured.

More Secure and Convenient to Modify protected files
Different from other folder hiders, when it comes to modifying a hidden file or folder, users don’t have to unhide it, edit it, and then hide it again. A single click of the ‘Open’ button will open the hidden file or folder, so it becomes visible to you. Then you can edit or modify it like it has been unhidden. When you are done editing, close the program and the file or folder will become hidden again automatically, saving you extra steps. This amazing feature comes in handy when you hide some files that you use or edit frequently.

Context Menu Option & Super User-friendly Interface
The interface of the tool is very intuitive. Even a first-timer can get the hang of it in a minute. Better yet, while installing this program, an item called ‘Hide File/Folder with the app’ is automatically added to the context menu. Users can hide files or folders by right-clicking them without launching the Folder Hider.

Completely Free and Perfectly Compatible with Almost All Windows Versions
Wise FolderHider is a freeware that allows you to hide files or folders (64 and 32-bit) in your Windows system. It has been developed and fully tested to work great on Windows 8 & 8.1 and other Windows operating systems, from Windows XP and up. No matter what you own - a desktop or a laptop.

Note: The following features are blocked in the unregistered version: encryption of hidden files/folders, automatic retrieval of passwords, automatic updates, premium tech support.
