You can effortlessly password-protect files or folders and convert them to standalone executable files that can be run on any PC
When you want to make sure unauthorized people cannot access your files or folders, it is best to protect them with a password.
Alternatively, you can try Standalone EXE Locker to encrypt them while also converting them to executable files that can be launched on any computer.
The main window of Standalone EXE Locker might look a little underwhelming at first, yet its lack of luster is compensated by its plethora of functions.
You can easily add your files or folders to the list, then choose the password you want to protect them.
Built-in password strength verifier
A nifty feature is the password strength checker, as you are advised to add alphanumeric characters, non-alphanumeric, upper or lower case characters. Also, the password should have at least 8 characters.
Generate standalone executables
Once you have settled on the password you want, you can set the application to securely erase the original file or overwrite it to ensure it can no longer be retrieved. You can even obfuscate the filename.
When it comes to the newly generated EXE files, you can add an extra layer of protection by hiding the password field unless the users clicks the executable’s window in a certain region or for a certain number of times.
In other words, unauthorized persons might not think a blank window is anything more than that, yet you know that if you click it in a certain corner for 5 times, for instance, you can easily decrypt it.
Moreover, if you created an EXE after protecting a folder, you can just unlock a single file rather than extract all of them.
To wrap it up
In a nutshell, Standalone EXE Locker brings to the table a few functions that help you protect your private data. In addition, you can define a folder that is constantly monitored and its detected files are automatically locked, without any extra action on your part.
We at AppsForMyPC have tested and used Standalone EXE Locker and it worked pretty smoothly 🙂 🙂
