Protected Folder software from IObit is the most trusted and also an easy-to-use password protection tool for your important folders. Protecting your private data has of course lots of benefits, so lets give this software a try!

Case Study


IObit is a world leading system utility and security software provider with more than 250 million users in 220 Countries Worldwide. I have checked their website using and I have found that they have around 270 000 unique visitors each day and their actual Alexa global traffic rank is 2 032, which is pretty beautiful, isn’t it? Currently they have a files protection tool that was recently updated with a new feature. Considering this, it seems to be a qualified candidate to be reviewed here! 🙂 I would like to introduce one of their product here, so keep reading…


First, I have downloaded the software from the IObit website:

The downloaded file (PF-Setup.exe) is about 3 MByte, that is fine.

Install and Run

After the quick installation, I got this window:

Protected Folder Software from IObit

Protected Folder Software from IObit requires a password to be set

I have created my password and a short hint just for the case I would forgot my password.

Using the Software

After that I only had to drag-and-drop my files into the target window of the software:

Protected Folder Software from IObit is easy-to-use

I have quickly made a test.txt file using Total Commander and Notepad++, that contains my test “secret information”: E=m*c2

Protected Folder stated that the status of my test file is: Protected.

I only had to click on the: Lock&Exit button to finish the process.

Testing the software

When I went back to Total Commander, I could not find my test file there.

Ok, that is nice, lets go back to Protected Folder and see if I can view this file again! The following window showed up when I have started the software:

Protected Folder Software from IObit – Password is required to re-open your protected folder

Lets just type wrong password to it just for testing purpose! It informed me that it is a wrong password and my hint has been also showed up for some seconds.

After typing the correct password I could see my test.txt file again there. I could even open it from there with my Notepad++ text editor.

After unlocking my test file from Protected Folder, the file appeared in Total Commander in the folder where I have initially created it. 🙂



It is really an easy-to-use password protection tool software for your important files. I was satisfied how well did it work. Its fast, useful and the window style and animations are also professional. I recommend all of my blog readers to give it a try!


After going trough all of this review process, it is still not clear to me what should I do if I cannot remember the password even with my hint. If you can figure it out please comment it here! 🙂


Considering all of these, I hereby give the people at IObit our brand-new award:

I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people consider worries that they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top as well as defined out the whole thing without having side-effects , people could take a signal. Will likely be back to get more. Thanks
