Hide files and folders from the prying eyes of other people using your Mac.

The most simple and straightforward method to protect a file. Secret Folder allow you to build a list of file and folders, which you may turn visible or invisible with a simple click. In addition, the application launch can be password-protected. This protection system is based on the principle that no person will attempt to open a file he/she cannot see or knows about.

Secret Folder constitutes the perfect solution if you wish to prevent occasional users of your Mac to view, open, or change files or documents while browsing the contents of your hard drive.

Notes about security
This app uses the standard functionality of the operating system to make folders and files invisible. Programmers and experienced users could gain access to a folder made invisible and there are some applications that let you open invisible files or files contained in a folder made invisible. Whether you need advanced levels for protecting your data, there are other ways. To learn more about Protecting information on removable media open Finder’s Help.


Release Notes:

• Engine completely rewritten.
• App sandboxed to protect the system and user.
• More robust data storing with Core Data.

The new version of Secret Folder has several changes designed to increase the level of security, including the use of different support files located in special folders in the Finder. Please make all the files and folders visible with the old version before to upgrade. Then you can add these files and folders in the main window of the updated app.

For more info and guides, please click on the question mark button in the main window of the app.

Thank you for your positive reviews and for your continued support!

Review by GJD from ISN

when it works it’s good - Like others I’ve had problems with lost hidden documents that can be a PITA to recover. Simpler problems have been easy to fix using their online help guides. I like the idea of having this program but it is a little bumpy. It does keep me from digging around and learning more about Unix to keep casual snoops out of my stuff tho.
