File Lock Replacement

I currently use File Lock program to create vaults to keep confidential information on my PC locked away from another person who shares my PC sometimes.  I understand that McAfee is removing File Lock from Total Protection in February 2022.  I am looking for the best alternative to File Lock that is either FREE or of little cost since I thought the annual cost of McAfee would include File Lock.  I do not require government grade security, but looking for a good product that is either Free or a one time low purchase price.  Hopefully someone has recommendations or has been down this road and has recommendations.  Thanks.

Re: File Lock Replacement

But your argument to remove these package was : there are many other solutions available.

Please send us only one of these solution to migrate before these functionality is history

Re: File Lock Replacement

in addition i would like to add that if you use windows 10 onedrive you can set up personal vault in there aswell. this provides an extra layer of security to store sensitive files.

support ms article about this feature;
