sometimes when i create .zip files by right clicking on a file/folder and going to Send to > Compressed (zipped) folder there is a small padlock on the icon

i can open it easily enough however i am wondering what it means and if it could prevent the .zip file being opened up on other computers as i do this to zip up soundtracks i rip and tag with album art in case if i need them on another computer
