To transfer files from your PC or MAC to the application, you must have a Wi-Fi capable PC or MAC. You must also have Wi-Fi activated on your iPhone. When you meet these two prerequisites, the application allows you to transfer files from your PC or MAC to the iPhone using secure and fast Wi-Fi connectivity.
After entering or setting the password in Folder Lock for the first time, a Hint window with IP and port will appear. Entering this IP and port into your web browser on your PC or MAC, will open the Web Server Interface of Folder Lock in your PC or MAC. From here you can start accessing and adding files to your iPhone. Here you’ll need the same password that you set in the application to be able to access or transfer your data. You can change this password anytime by logging in the Application > Settings > Password and then tap ‘Change’ button.
Since iPhone doesn’t offer a default method to password protect your files, Folder Lock for iPhone is extremely essential for your iPhone. All those personal pictures, sensitive videos and important documents you want to keep in your iPhone, can now be added in your iPhone. With Folder Lock, you don’t have to worry if your iPhone ever gets stolen or lost because your data is still secure. Imagine what will happen if a thief gets hold on your bank statements or your profile pictures or your boss discovering sensitive videos on your iPhone? Folder Lock’s brute force password protection makes it possible to keep your files for your eyes only. This is a unique product because no other reliable password protection solutions are available for your iPhone to date.
Apart from password protecting your files, Folder Lock for iPhone also has a built-in audio player, video player, picture viewer and a document viewer. It also supports slide show for your pictures and a playlist for your audios and videos. You also check fake password attempts used by a possible intruder who may have tried to hack into the application by going to the Settings. From Settings, you can also set the intervals for the slide show and set the playlist options. Furthermore, you can restrict the number of password attempts to frustrate hackers who may try various different passwords to try to hack into the application.

Works As Advertised
The reviewers who are complaining assumed it works in a way that it doesn't. Not the developers fault. This doesn't lock "folders" on your phone, because iPhone doesn't have a user accessible file system. Each app "files" it's own documents. If you thought it would lock your app folders, you just assumed wrong. Get over yourself.
This is a great way to lock away pictures, passwords, files, ect. I've used it for years. It works as advertised. Bad reviewers are lazy crybabies.
It is Awesome!
I used to worry about keeping my personal pictures in my iPhone but after getting Folder Lock, all my privacy concerns are a thing of the past. Since it comes with a built-in image viewer, I do not have to transfer my pictures anywhere to view them. Transferring files to Folder Lock is quite simple as it provides an easy to use web interface that I can open in any browser on both my PC and MacBook. I absolutely recommend this application without any hesitations.
The app name is a little misleading (it does not allow you to lock folders). What it does do is provide password-protected storage for files that you need to keep on your device.
I would have preferred an ATM-like keypad like the one Picture Safe uses, rather than having to tap the field, switch to the numeric keyboard, then tap the enter key, but I suppose this method allows for more secure passwords. Aside from the price, it's a great app.
