Password Protect Files on Your Computer

Do you have any sensitive information on your computer such as passwords or other account credentials? Are you interested in securing those files so that others in your home cannot have access to them?

There are many ways to tackle this but there is a free and super simple way to do this using a program called 7-zip. You can get 7-zip from their website http://www.7-zip.org/ or you can get it through http://ninite.com/.

This program will allow you to create a zip archive with all the files you want to protect inside and set a password for it.

The password entry prompt when trying to open a protected file.

Please do not forget the password for it. There is no link to click and have your password reset or sent to you...

Here is the video on how to do it.


Keep your information safe and have an awesome day!
