Secure Folder is software that allows users to secure files on their local machines using AES-256 encryption.
Secure Folder is a simple piece of software that operates through a small GUI and the Windows shell. In other words, users can simply right-click a file in Windows Explorer, and the option to encrypt the file using Secure Folder will appear. If a user elects to encrypt a file, it will be gibberish to anyone who doesn't have the key.
The program isn't a silver bullet for privacy, since keyloggers can still steal the password the user chooses for each individual file. However, when used in combination with a solid antivirus solution, Secure Folder uses military-grade encryption to ensure that files meant to remain private stay that way.
While other programs perform the same function, most aren't as straightforward to use as Secure Folder and don't have a Windows shell option.
