What are people saying about Wise Folder Hider Pro

Loyal User This statement is not clear. Can you elaborate?
"Please note folks: the giveaway version does not support getting the password automatically. The password is set for the files which you want to hide."

ByteSmith I understand that the offer is for a free copy, but I would also like some clarity on the statement "Please note folks: the giveaway version does not support getting the password automatically. The password is set for the files which you want to hide."
Thanks much...

Constantin Florea @Paul Boucher, After installing the application and after running it for the first time, you will be asked to set a password. After you hide files using the application, in order to bring them back you need the password you set when you first ran the application. The vendor is able to help customers recover the password in case of a paid purchase because that paid purchase has a registration key which can be used to recover the password. However in the case of this giveaway, the installer is unlocked, so there is no registration key, which means the vendor cannot help recover the password.

Rheal Poirier Just don't like at all. A very wise marketing to promote this software. You just upload but you cannot use it because at the first openning it is asked a password that doesn't exist, since it is the first use and they ask you to pay to recollect the password, but what password since it has never been created. I conclude that company just laught at people when acting this way. Very sory that BIT du JOUR be associate with this sort of marketing.

Petronius Arbiter II I'll probably try installing this one just to see a bit more about how this kind of thing works, but I have a lot of doubts I'll use it much, or in fact, AT ALL. Here's the big problem with this deal that makes it almost a no-go:

"Transfer of a license to another owned computer is not allowed."

This means I could end up with hidden files and folders that I can never, ever use again once the system partitions on the hard drives of the original desktop and laptop have crashed (and in many possible real-life scenarios cannot be restored on a new hard drive,) or the motherboards have become unusable and irreplaceable. Which certainly CAN happen, over the course of sometimes only a few years; a few months, even, in a worst case scenario.

What I would REALLY like would be maybe if I could install the program itself on a USB drive, so I can have the hidden files always available to any computer I might need to copy them from, and then also be able to create backups of both the program files, Application Data, and the hidden files, so that I can pretty much remove any possibility of ever losing the hidden files.

It doesn't do you much good to put a lock on your front door so strong, it can keep you from being able to get into your own house, ya know?

Constantin Florea @Rheal Poirier, When you first run the application you will be asked to create a login password which you will need later while working with the application.

rodken I have been using V 2 (not Pro) for atleast a year, haven't had a problem yet, does exactly what it's supposed to do.
If you need such software grab this while you can. I won't be upgrading to this only because I really don't need anything more than the older version which is perfectly fine. They also have a free version.

Rheal Poirier I did desinstall the program following that it was asked my password...but there nos password since at the firts openning there was no option to create a password. I have though it was a sort of ''bug'' into the program, so why i did desinstall it and re-install with a new upload. But same, when openning the program it is asked again my password, but what password since there have any password created neither it was asked to create a password when lauching the program. This doesn't inspire any trust to pursue with this programm. I am suprise that any folk here has experienced the same problem when lauching it.

Loyal User @Rheal
When you first start the program it is NOT asking you for a password.
It is asking you to CREATE a password so you can unlock, or UNhide the files and folders that you want to hide.
Read what it says when it is asking you for the password at the first start of the program (first use)!

The idea of creating a password is to prevent anyone from UNhiding these files and folders unless they know the password you have created.

Just make sure you remember the password that you create at the start of the program
If you forget the password, you cannot access any files or folders that you decided to hide using this program.

0 Hi,

Wise Folder Hider Pro can help you to get back the password which you set to protect your hidden file. If you forget the password, we will send it to your register mail directly.

While this giveaway version can't support the above function. Due to we insert only one license key into this version, and it is not one to one correspondence with the register mail. So it is impossible to get back and send the forgotten password automatically.

If you forget your password with the giveaway version, please contact with

Thanks for all of your support! - Apr 14 2015 at 9:05pm Copy Link
Vipin User What does this statement mean:
"Please note folks: the giveaway version does not support getting the password automatically however the vendor can help you retrieve your password for a fee of $9.90. The password is set for the files which you want to hide. "

Can someone please let me know? I have downloaded the software and just waiting to install, but unless I make myself clearer on what this statement means, I am not going to use it.

Constantin Florea @Vipin User, The phrase refers to the fact that if you forget the password and need help recovering it, the vendor can help retrieve it for a fee of $9.90.

Garry Camps does this mean that the vendor has a backdoor to users files, thereby making it unsecure to use ?

Paul joubert Am I missing something? This latest free offering seems to be a "Déjà view" of the same offering a year a go. Same queries and the same ambiguous answers..
Who in his or her right mind would RISK hiding their files with even a whisper or a notion of not being able to retrieve them without having to contact the vendor who can help retrieve them for a fee of $9.90. Seriously BitsDujour, in my humble view your fine, impeccable reputation is at risk on this one. (this IS a hot potato)
Kind regards.

John Wilson Nice Offer, Thanks!
To previous comments, I see No Risk greater than being forgetful and losing my password, then for a mere $9.90, I can give access to the Developer to get on my PC and have them unlock my folders/files, but they'd have no more normal access through my firewall/modem than anyone else on the Internet.
Keep up the Great Work Bits!

Rudi Steberl Hello,
a few minutes ago, I bought Wise Folder Hider Pro. Not the 100% free version 3.35, but normal one 50% discount. Now I got an E-Mail, that I have to install it within 3 days and and that an update makes the license code invalid.
I bought the full version, because I can install it only in one week, when I'm back at my PC where it should be installed and I read in your manual that newer versions are searched automatically.
I think that this is not okay, because when I pay for a software you should say it BEFORE the user buys it.

Where is now the difference between the 100% discount version and the paid one ???

kind regards, Rudi

Rosalind Share Although I have looked, I cannot find any information as to the type(s) of encryption used.
Jun 5 2016 at 10:10am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @Rudi Steberl, The license policy from the receipt email refers only to the giveaway item. However there is a known issue in our system in which that license policy is sent for all purchase items in that giveaway. So the paid version which you have purchased does not have the limitations (3 days registration and paid upgrades) as the free version has. I have already contacted the vendor to help clarify which upgrades apply to the paid version of Wise Folder Hider Pro.

Gde Swart Thanks for the deal, its a nice giveaway and easy to use for what it is.
That said, everyone should know that hiding folders really only helps against casual snooping. Once space is occupied on the HDD it's occupied, which means the simplest forensic tool (a bootable CD) will unveil any files this program "hides" which also means that once it's discovered, encryption really becomes a factor. I agree with Rosalind, I really would like to know what encryption method is used before I would put too much trust in this.
I'm not bashing the program. Wise makes nice software and it's fine within its limitations. Think of this like putting something on the top shelf or under the mattress. It's safe from the casual snoop, but its no Fort Knox. Typically, like anything you want to protect, the more secure you make it the less convenient it becomes. I think this program has value, just maybe not for your most confidential data.

Danny Sorry, but what kind of confusion? The free Pro version is only to use with the current version number: v3.35 and the purchased Wise Folder Hider Pro is a Free Lifetime Upgrades license. Is this correct? Because in practice this seems to make no difference!

rodken Been using this for years, I have never had a problem with it. Does everything they say it does. Like others here I would like to know what encryption method is being used. I searched their site/forum but found nothing.

J Hello,

Thank you for the free 'Pro' version 3.23.94 that you gave away a few years back.

Considering your new 1-year subscription model, my free Pro version still seems to be working. It also allows me to update to your latest version for free.

If I update to your latest version, will it time-out after one year?

If so, will my current (old) version 3.23.94 continue to work indefinitely?

I don't want to hide folders or files and then be locked out after one year.

Thank you.

Petr Under the "Fine Print" tab, I see your terms: "After you purchase Wise Folder Hider Pro it may be used for 12 months and will not function after that unless you renew your subscription."

Please quote a price that will not lock out my access. What if your company is not available, out of business or changes their primary focus... ? I would never take such chances with important files. Please provide a license option without an expiring software limitation.

Petr Why would I have my files in this Ransom Ware. Pay to get my files? What if you guys are out-of-business, how would I recover my confidential files? No Thanks.
If you had a non-expiring license, even at a greater cost, this might be viable.

Quill Pen @Petr et al. - Over a few years, I've used both the free and a previous PRO version via Bits on different PC's.

Point 1 - as has been said above several times, after installation when the program first opens, it asks NOT for a vendor provided password but for one you create right then and there. I guess that popup could be better worded but I never count on programmers to write good documentation.

Point 2 - This is NOT ransomware. Unless I'm mistooken, when your 12-mo PRO license expires, as with so many PRO encryption and stealth folder packages, I believe it reverts to the free version. Thus, you will still have access to your personal files/folders (unless you lose/forget your password.)

DiggerP @ Quill Pen,

Thank you for your input, but Point 2 is purely an assumption on your part.
It says specifically " "After you purchase Wise Folder Hider Pro it may be used for 12 months and will not function after that unless you renew your subscription."

There is nothing to indicate that the program will revert to the free version.

To me it means, the program will start - inform you that it has expired
and offer to renew the subscription.
If you don't renew , the program will close and that's the end of that.

If it really is like you're assuming - then this should be listed.
What other programs or vendors do or not do, has no bearing on this program.

Stuart Clarke I encountered a real problem with this particular software, some time ago. Basically, what happens is: you CANNOT uninstall it if you've forgotten the password. And this is most likely the reason why you're uninstalling, the frustration of a blocked uninstall routine is immense.

But. It gets worse. If you do, by brute force, seemingly manage to uninstall, any future prospect of installing either the free version or the (paid) Pro version also comes to grief because Wise seeds your computer's registry with a remnant even Revo doesn't pick up. So, no. You can't install 'Hide Folder' in future. . . unless you pay Wise to let you have a password you've long since forgotten for an app you've long since managed to be rid of.

Hopefully, that situation has changed? Otherwise there's no point in me downloading this rather nice BDJ offer if, when I install it, I'm asked for a password I don't have. (And no, just to be clear: my experience was not of the software asking me to 'create' a password, but of inputting a password which it recognised had once existed.)

Whilst I can understand Wise's reasoning in blocking an uninstall of this particular app unless you know its password, the fact is that if someone has so great an access to your computer that they can actually uninstall whatever they want means the security issue for your computer is already dead and buried. Wise should stop this business of must-have-the-password-to-uninstall. It's waaay too obstructive. (But perhaps -- fingers crossed -- it already has??)

Nabeel Auzae What is protection?
Protection from hackers only?
Does spyware protection include?

At the end of the period of 12 months and the person can not renew the subscription, there must be an option to delete the program without deleting the content, or disable the work of the program without prejudice to the content
I am afraid of this program, because we do not know what happens to the files inside the folder after the end of the period of 12 months
