Free Folder Hider icon Hide any folders from your computer and block other users’ access to your sensitive information and configuration settings with the aid of a master password

Free Folder Hider is a small Windows application whose purpose is to help you securely hide folders from your computer, so unauthorized users cannot have access to your sensitive data.

User-friendly layout and master password

You are welcomed by a clean feature lineup that allows you to carry out most operations with minimal effort.

The tool offers support for a master password that helps you restrict other users from accessing your private information and changing the configuration settings.

Hiding options

Free Folder Hider gives you the possibility to build up a list with user-defined folders that are concealed from the computer. You can add directories to the list using the built-in browse button, so you cannot rely on the drag-and-drop support.

What’s more, you are allowed to remove the selected directory from the private list, open the hidden folder with just one click, as well as hide or unhide all folders.

Additionally, the tool displays the time and date in the primary panel, and lets you back up the folder information to a file, so you can easily restore it, and use hotkeys for a better control over the entire process (they cannot be reassigned).


Since it doesn’t bundle many configuration settings, the entire process seems nothing but a child’s play. During our testing we have noticed that Free Folder Hider carries out a task quickly. It is quite friendly with system resources, so the overall performance of the computer is not hampered.

Bottom line

All things considered, Free Folder Hider comes bundled with a handy suite of features for helping you hide user-defined folders and encrypt data with the aid of a master password.
