Works perfect - i debated between this app and another one which costs 3X the price of this one and I am glad I chose this one! It works just as it is described, and i was also able to hide folders on my shared hard drive via our air port express' USB port, I can't even explain how awesome that is. i have checked with my other macs and the files cannot be seen. I am running Lion 10.7.5 on a 15" i7 MBP
Not Completely Effective - App hides files in Finder & on Desktop. It does NOT hide them in Documents stack on Dock. I'm disappointed and have found another app to use.

Okay, but missing a couple of key features - The app generally does what it claims -- it hides files in the Finder. However, two things to note: 1.) Although the feature list claims it does, it does not in fact (as of version 1.1.1) allow you to launch hidden files; you must make the files visible in order to launch them. 2.) It doesn't hide files from the command line at all; anyone savvy enough to open the Terminal and type 'ls' can still see the files and/or folders you've hidden.
Doesn’t hide the files everywhere - The program says it hides the files, and sure enough when I look in the folder they are hidden, but they still show up in the “All My Files” favorites and when I search for them, either by name or internal word. Totally useless. Will be looking for a refund
buyer beware - This app claims to prevent access to files from recent lists, by renaming the file. This is simply not the case. All it does is add the word "hidden" to the file name. This is what an intruder will see in the recents list, and they can still open the file even if it has a different name.
Worthless - This app is worthless. I needed to hide a folder. When I told the app to hide it, it did. But, if I searched in Finder for subfolders that were in the “hidden” folder they showed up and if I double clicked on these, I could see all the content in them. So, it hides the name of the folder, but still gives access to all the files in it. It’s a joke!
WON’T ACCEPT MY PASSWORD - I put a password on my file, closed the app, and now the app won’t open unless I give it my password. Which I gladly did, thankful that the thing is securing my file, but IT DID NOT ACCEPT MY PASSWORD, so now what do I do? Can I change the password? Can’t open the thing without password. I want my money back, and I want an app that works!!!!
