Hidden Toolbox Software Review

Online privacy has become a growing concern because most websites are now employing the “Do you know we use cookies” policy. This has pushed several creative minds from Florida to create software, called Hidden Toolbox, to allow you to browse privately. We have decided to check whether Hidden Toolbox can protect you from the outer world as well as other users on your computer like it claims to.

Hidden Toolbox – Main Features

Once started, the program made us go through a quick tutorial on how the concealed program works.

In fact, the software is concealed on your computer and runs based on the quick key combination. Once it has been used, it takes you through a virtual keyboard where you may type your password:

Furthermore, we have established that the program can copy hidden files from your computer into a concealed location and give you the option to download them from it every time you wish to and wherever you’d like to:

We have also noticed, something very cool, the program has a panic button in case you are using it on a computer used by other people. Once the button is pressed everything disappears immediately.

When the software’s size was checked, it was concluded that it was very light (around 40 megabytes), and this is why it installed and hid quite fast.

The program also has an in built browser and uses a strong SSL 256-bit file encryption to encode your communication. When we performed a privacy check with it during the usage of its demo, and it was established that you can browser via this software, without having any history and quite fast but it does not conceal your IP address.

What We Like


We enjoyed many features of this program:

  • The fast browsing process.
  • A panic button.
  • Having the ability of uploading of the files and their concealing from other users.
  • The simplicity of the interface.
  • 256 Bit SSL encryption service.

What Is Missing


There were several details that we would love to have seen:

  • Adblocking software during browsing.
  • Browser Extensions.
  • A built-in VPN service.
  • No tutorial on how to delete since it is very well hidden on the user’s PC.

Conclusion

The bottom line is that this is a simple application that gives you the opportunity to browse the internet via its browser. Yes, you can feel safe using it at home, but we have to admit that it does not do a decent job by hiding your IP address.
