Protect Files Stored on Your Mobile Phone

We have discussed before about how important is to protect your data stored on phone; especially those files which are confidential and of very personal in nature.

In case your phone is stolen, or it is temporarily in someone’s hand, you are at great risk of loosing this private data. The situation may lead you to a very depressing state leaving you with no option but to regret. So this is the right time to better plan your personal data storage strategies.

Second best practice is to protect your files with passwords (obviously the best thing is to not keep private files on your mobile at all). For this, unfortunately, our mobile phones don’t come with folder lock options. Let me review this software for you which can hide your files and folders from others.

This software, named as “File hide” can hide your files and folders. This is a JAVA application, meaning that its compatible to variety of phone models available these days.

After downloading “File Hide” application, you will be asked to set a master password after you run the application on first place. Just select a password and restart file hide to start using it. By the way you can change this password in anytime you want.

To start protecting your files you can click on an option named as “hide” in the option menu and the file will then not be listed in the phone and can be seen only through file hide.
Good thing about “File hide” is that it is a freeware and user friendly as well.

Please note that your files will be visible when connected to computer. So this is not the ultimate solution, obviously not a desired feature, but still a good tool to hide your files on mobile phone.
