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.
What's New in Version 9.0
• Engine completely rewritten.
• App sandboxed to protect the system and user.
• More robust data storing with Core Data.
PLEASE READ BEFORE UPGRADE
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!
The Secret Folder Team
been using this app for quite awhile (years)…maybe i have an older version, but with the “so-called” bad reviews; i have not had any of those issues at all…sometimes i think bad reviews as such are user/hardware issues and not the app itself…not to say there are issues (secret folder really isn’t that secret…shows up in the applications directory as well as launch pad... but still - password protected……as for any files that may be detrimental to you personally…NEVER keep them on you computer…password protected thumb drive (YES)…as for the secret folder; still use and works just fine…keep stuff from the kids or general public…perfect...(1 time it did freeze up, but was an easy fix with a google search)…just an anomaly of sorts
Works, but problems
App can be very slow to open with spinning beach ball for long delays before it allows you to enter pw, sometimes hangs and never opens.
The auto update has now made previous hidden folders unhidable
The folder list is empty and can’t unhide folders now. Please fix.
