Indeed, passwords can be stolen, hacked, brute-forced or fraudulently acquired using 'fishing' methods. So, do you still think passwords are a reliable way to protect data?
Nevertheless, there is a smarter path to protect important information from malefactors that is equally efficient as passwords and sometimes is even better! Guess what this method is?
Surely, we are talking about concealment of data from a potential intruder. If a hacker does not know some information is on the computer, he obviously cannot do anything with it: steal, affect or even read. That's the protection Folder Lastic sets up.
Folder Lastic literally hides the specified files and folders from all running applications including system processes. Simply put, protected folders become invisible!
Now only you can access them, because it's only you who even knows these data are on your computer to begin with!
Protection activates with a secret hotkey, momentarily. And of course, you don't have to reboot your computer to make the protection take effect.
Moreover, if a malefactor logs on to the system under a different user name, or reboots the computer in the safe mode, the hidden folders remain hidden. Even deletion of the Folder Lastic folder won't reveal the disguise! Only you can make those protected files visible again.
Folder Lastic supports FAT and NTFS file system, can hide / show multiple folders at once, and in an emergency case allows you to activate protection remotely, from another computer.
The program features four protection modes and the ability to allow authorized applications to see hidden folders.
This means Folder Lastic is extremely flexible, so you can easily configure it to your specific usage scenario.
