The Interface is appealing; it provides all important features at hand so the user does not have to search a lot to find what he is looking for. Firstly, before one can encrypt the file, it needs to create a Locker and it implies 6 steps: entering the name and path of the Locker one wants to create, set Locker Password, confirm Locker Password-the strength meter will confirm if the chosen password is strong or not. The next steps are choosing the type of Locker (Locker with Online Backup Support or Basic Locker) and selecting a maximum size for the data that needs to be protected.

If the user chooses to use the Protect USB/CD tab, it implies protecting USB, CD/DVD or encrypt email attachment-create an encrypted ZIP file of your confidential file.  Protecting the USB is not difficult at all; one just has to select a few options like making the existing Locker portable or creating a new portable Locker in the USB device. If going for the second option, data about new portable locker must be filled and also choosing the size for the USB- the user must pay attention when selecting the size because it can’t be changed afterwards. The Protect CD/ DVD wizard allows burning precious data to a CD/DVD drive and the Encrypt email permits sending current data in an encrypted form through the regular email client.

Folder Lock also comes with the opportunity to save priceless information, such as passwords from safe deposits, credit cards, bank accounts, al in an encrypted form called Wallet. One must set a password and afterwards confirm it for secure measures and it must be easy to remember and difficult to break. Erasing files is also important, so the software comes with everything that one may want from an encryption application, like space shredding.

When it comes to security, everyone wants to know their most prized possessions in a safe place, it does not matter if it’s just some personal data, photos from fashion events, top secret ideas and contracts because Lock 7 provides security round the clock.
