No matter in our home computer or work computer, it is inevitable for us to save some classified or personal data inside. Then we should focus on how to provide better protection to this data especially if you need to share your computer with others. There are so many methods we could find on the Internet.
But are they safe or suitable for us? Here we have collected the most accepted password security methods. Hope you can find a suitable one from these methods:
Method 1: Protect Folder with Script
This method will modify the property of the folder and rename the target folder, which will hide the folder at last. Once you enter the password in the script file, the folder will be shown. Free and user-friendly are the most outstanding advantages of this method.
Method 2: Protect Folder Password with Software
This method is to compress the entire folder with the password protect function in some compression tools. If your folders contain large files, the compression process may take more time. But this method is much secure than script.
Method 3: Protect Folder Password with Account Authority
This works for a computer that has different accounts. If there is only one account on your computer, this method will not work. If there are different accounts on your computer, you can encrypt the target folder with a built-in encrypt function. However, once others know your login password, the data will not be safe anymore.
