Password protect entry list too

How can I password protect also the entry list? I want to hide the content until the password is entered. Is this possible?


Thank you

It is not possible with regular ZIP encryption.  There are some zip tools that support a thing called "Central Directory Encryption", which does what you want.  But this feature is not widely supported.

One thing that people do is embed a zip into a zip.  Without the password, readers can see that the outer zip contains a single zip file.  But in order to extract the inner zip file, the viewer must have the password. Once the password is provided and the inner zip is extracted, then the viewer can see the directory of files within the inner zip.
