How to Password Protect and Lock Folders in Windows

You do not need to be an advanced user to protect your private folders with a password.

Password Protect Folders, the security software program for Windows, helps you:

  • Protect folders of your choice on the internal, external, removable, and network drives. The number of folders you can protect in the full version is unlimited. The free trial version can lock up to three folders.
  • Lock folders with different passwords. You can use the same password for all your folders or get higher security and set a different password for each folder.
  • Set a password hint not to forget your password.


Tired of your friends, co-workers, or children messing up with your files? Using Password Protect Folders, you will see just how easy it can be to safeguard your sensitive files against unwanted access. The program supports Windows 10, 8.1, 8, Vista, XP, NT, 98, and ME.

Who should use this program?

Password Protect Folders is designed for home and business users who need to protect their sensitive files so that they do not get into the wrong hands. No computer skills are required: the program is integrated in Windows Explorer so you can use the right-click menu to lock/unlock folders.
