Invisible File is very useful to keep your information away from prying eyes or kids who may accidentally modify or delete your files. It allows users to hide folders and their contents.
If the file be locked and can't be visibled/invisibled, make sure you haven't opened the file by other apps, such as iPhoto/Media Player.
Don't try to invisible a file in an external disk.
Using a password
You will be asked to add a password when you first open the app, this helps you to prevent others to open the application.
Notes about security
This program 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 as protecting information on removable media such as using Mac OS X FileVault. To learn more about Protecting information on removable media and on Mac OS X FileVault open Mac OS X Finder’s Help.

I wanted to like this app
I thought the interface was nice…very easy to use, excactly what I was looking for, an easy way to hide folders and the files within them. At first it worked great and I hid 4 folders in my Documents folder. Locked and unlocked with ease. Next day I went back in to unlock a folder and it wouldn’t let me, it gave me an error message. 3 of my folders were stuck on “locked”. 1 of the 4 I was able to unlock normally. Fortunately I discovered a terminal command that allowed me to un-hide the files in those folders and recover them. Message to the developer is so far unanswered.
Very useful for hiding files from prying eyes on your screen. It is easy to make files/folders invisible and then it is easy to make them visible again. However, each time you want to make a file visible, you must type in your password. So, I would say that it is a useful, easy file/folder lock.
works great :)
I bought a file encrypter app on the app store and it was fine but only encrypted one file at a time so very tedious. With this app (invisiblefile) I can "hide" a
whole folder with contents in the folder. This invisiblefile app is easy to use. I recomend this app for an inexpensive option to hide files.
