"a fast, reliable, portable folder protector"
KaKa Folder Protector is a folder lock-out software package that aims to add an additional layer of protection by creating private file folders.
The software includes a few innovations that not every other folder protection software package has. There are three locking methods: Lock, Scramble and Encrypt. The user can decide for themselves whether they merely wish to lock access to the file folder, scramble the data or encrypt behind a password as well. It is nice to have the choice of three different methods of protection.
With file security there are also three methods available. Files can be made completely inaccessible, unmovable to another folder or hard drive, or undeletable to help prevent malicious (or accidental) removal of the file(s).
Industry-standard 256-bit AES Encryption is used to protect the files selected for encryption.
The software not only works on desktop and laptop computers, but can also be placed on a USB flash drive and other mobile storage options and it will protect the files stored in a protected folder there too. No installation is required.
The software required minimal space and did not require to be installed. When first running, there was an offer of seeing the instructions to help teach the new user how to use the software.
There was no adware, toolbars, malware or spyware included with the package.
KaKa Folder Protector requires Windows 8, 7, vista, XP, 2003, and 2000 (32 bit and 64 bit).
The interface for the Folder Protector is clean, colorful and pretty easy to understand right off the bat.
The layout is clean with good spacing between elements like entry boxes. The font sizes are good so they are easily readable when entering usernames, passwords, phone numbers, email address, and the like.
Often the window is also expandable to the right by using a right arrow on the mid-level of the right side of the window which when clicked expands the window out to reveal more options (a compact arrow to the right reverses the effect).
There is also an "Advanced Settings" section that offers encryption security level choices, login password options, a search section and a restore section too.
