How to Password Protect Compressed Folder using winrar

1)Download and install WinRAR.

Add your files to a new RAR archive. There are a couple of different ways that you can do this:

·         Open the WinRAR window and then browse for the files you want to add. Select all the files and then click the "Add" button.

·         Select all of the files you want to archive in Windows. Right-click on your selection and choose "Add to archive...".




Give your archive a name. By default, it will be named after the folder the files were originally in.


Click the .Set password... button. This is located in the General tab of the "Archive name and parameters" window that appears when creating a new archive. Enter in your password. Enter it a second time to confirm it. You can check the "Show password" box to see the characters as you type them.


Check the "Encrypt file names" box. This will ensure that no one can see the names of the files contained in the RAR file until after they have successfully entered the password.


Test it out.
After the RAR file is created, you can double-click it to test it out. When you try to extract it, you will be prompted for the password you created.
