Protect Photos, Pictures and Videos

Aug 17, 2007
In the last few years, most of the individuals have become increasingly computer savvy. They prefer to use the computer as a medium even for those aspects of their life, which were earlier considered very personal.

Previously, only official documents and records were placed on the computers and no other form of information was generally stored. Nowadays, we end up saving all sorts of material including personal photographs, family pictures and videos on our computers.

Does it carry any risk?

A simple act of saving our photos and videos on our computer might sound very harmless to an individual. What we fail to realize is that such personal photographs and videos are under a great risk from hackers and viruses that can trace them and use them for undesirable purposes.

Most important of all, having your personal pictures and videos available for open public view across millions of people leaves you feeling immensely embarrassed and awkward.

Can anything be done?

To begin with, you can simply start by organizing the files carrying such pictures and videos into proper folders. By doing this, it will be easy for you to apply protection to your folders using an appropriate privacy protection software.

A privacy protection software acts by applying certain features and locks on your selected photos and videos. This way, these folders become invisible to the other users of the computer. Even those who are highly skilled in hacking computers of other users will fail to spot such folders, thereby making it very safe for you.

What are the options available?

Due to the increasing use of computers to save personal pictures and videos nowadays, there are many kinds of software available to protect such information.

You can choose good privacy protection software that will be especially designed to protect the photographs and videos on your computer. Such software can be easily purchased and installed on your computer. All you have to do is to select the folders you want to hide and follow the instructions of the software provider.

About trial versions

Privacy protection software for hiding the pictures and videos on your computer can be mainly purchased in two ways. You can either research the internet for some options or contact your local computer software provider.

Almost all of the internet suppliers of folder hiding software provide trial versions of their products. The trial version is available free of cost and can be downloaded on your computer for a limited period of time, which normally lasts up to 20 days. After you have tried the software for the trial period, you must purchase the software from the vendor for further use.
