What's New in Version 2.2.1
General performance and stability improvements
Good for the average User
I have been using this application for a short period of time, but explored the extent. I have delt with encrypting and encryption files on various OS platforms and by different developers. This version (2.0) seems to be great for the average user. If you are doing local file encrytption as well as external harddrive encryption, this will do the job and it will do it in a fashionable user friendly way. The options are a bit limited, but it hits all the main points of encrypting on a mac. For a one time buy, it is efficient and useful. Hope the quick review helps!
Fast and Neat
After running Hider for 6 or 8 months I’m satisfied. It does its job as advertised. Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this software.
Can no longer hide Applications
The original app was able to hide applications with no issues. The app is now double the cost with half the options.
