Conceal Your Personal Files – My Lockbox Freeware

lockbox.jpgAlmost everyone has files or folders on their computer that they do not want to share with others.

My Lockbox is a freeware software application that allows you to conceal, and password protect files on your computer.

Other users will not know where your personal files are, nor will they be able to accidentally view them.

The protected folder (lockbox) is hidden from all users and applications on your computer; including the Administrator and the System.

It is impossible to access the lockbox, not only from the local computer, but also from the Internet. The program is extremely easy to setup and use, by following the on-screen instructions. The lockbox location, password, and parameters are configured during the easy setup procedure.

After the setup is completed, the lockbox will be hidden and locked until you, as the user, enter the valid password. My Lockbox Control Panel allows you easily change basic lockbox parameters: lockbox location, protection status, and password.

The program is effective, easy to use and best of all – it’s free.
