Folder Shield adds an extra layer of defense that limits access to your important files and folders. It keeps you safe from ransomware attacking these files and holding them hostage until you pay the attacker.
Folder Shield blocks any program not in the Trusted Program List, from accessing the files inside the protected folder.
