You can easily guess what this application does by taking a look at its name: Free Folder Hider lets you conceal entire directories and protect their content from prying eyes and unauthorized access.

Free Folder Hider is very simple and easy-to-use. Its minimalistic interface is intuitive and straightforward, allowing even complete beginners to use this neat application without any problem.

When it comes to the number of available features and functions, Free Folder Hider doesn’t impress, being a small tool focused on being simple and neat. It only allows setting a master password that protects it from being opened and used by other people. It also enables adding multiple directories to a list of “private folders” which can be quickly hidden or revealed, with just the press of a button. Hiding and showing all the folders on the list at once is possible only with the non-free Pro edition of the program.

To sum it all up, Free Folder Hider is a pretty decent solution if you need to hide any folders on your computer in a quick and easy way. It’s simple, reliable and free, but it also lacks any advanced features or options.
