    Editor's Review of the above Free Folder Lock Software

    For Windows Users, KakaSoft is cheaper than Newsoftware. It allows you to set different password for each folder. These are what I prefer. But some others may prefer one password protecting all folders, then Newsoftware suits you.

     

    For Mac, iOS and Android Users, the above three folder lock software are excellent. User-friend and not expensive. And all use advanced encryption technology. You may have a try by yourself.
