My Lockbox is a security application that is capable of password protecting files and folders in a computer. This is a useful tool for users who share a computer with other users. During the installation process, the application asks users to create a username and password, and to set a location for the password-protected folder. After the installation, the folder will be locked from other users. To access the locked folder, users can click on the My Lockbox icon on the desktop and provide the username and password. After logging in, the program will open the location of the locked folder.
Adding files inside the locked folder is the same as adding files in regular folders. The only difference is that the files disappear as soon as they are saved. The lockbox is only visible in the computer if it is unlocked. The program has a drag and drop feature, too. This makes it easier for users to add several files to the locked folder. Users can also set a hotkey for launching the Control Panel.
Other features of My Lockbox include the following:
• Support for FAT, FAT32, and NTFS volumes
• Instant protection
• Protects folders even in safe mode
• Skinnable interface
• Easy to use
