Sneaksy - Minimalistic Password-Protected Hidden Folder Solution

Sneaksy is a super-minimalistic, hidden folder solution which protects sensitive data from unauthorized access. The portable and open-source application works on Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8 platforms. Sneaksy is very simple to use, just download and launch to get started - there is no UI as such, on first run a small red-box will display on top-left corner of the screen where user inputs the desired password which will be visible so you can confirm what is entered. On subsequent runs you will need to use this password and it will no longer be shown, pressing enter will further shrink the password prompt in the corner unlocking the "Files" folder on desktop allowing authorized access. Click on the only visible "Red" handle in the corner to lock and hide the folder and exit the application.
