Frequently Asked Questions
Q:
Where do my hidden files go when I put them into Hider 2?
A:

Hidden items get encrypted using the AES-256 algorithm and moved to a secure vault, created by Hider 2. If the files come from your local drive, they are stored in a local vault on this system drive. If you hide files on an external drive, a secure vault is created on the drive and files get moved into it.

Q:
Am I protected from losing my files due to any problems that may occur while hiding or unhiding? Like ower failure?
A:

Yes, with Hider 2 you will never lose your files, since its algorithms always make sure you have at least one complete copy of your file either in hidden or visible state. If your Mac switches off while hiding/unhiding, the files will just remain in the previous state.

Q:
Is there a convenient way of moving files from previous versions of Hider to Hider 2?
A:

Yes, Hider 2 should automatically identify previously hidden items and offer you to migrate them to Hider 2 on first launch. You may also initiate this process manually from the main Hider 2 menu.

Q:
What it AES-256? 
A:

AES (Advanced Encryption Standard) is a type of cipher for digital data, established by the U.S. National Institute of Standards and Technology back in 2001. AES-256 is a 256-bit variant of the cipher, which is currently known as the world’s most advanced and unbreakable cipher.

Q:
Does Hider 2 provide network protection and anonymity over the Internet?
A:

No, Hider 2 is not a measure of online protection, it’s not a firewall or anything similar. It aims to locally secure the files you deem confidential, so that nobody can decrypt them without knowing your password, even if they have access to your Mac.

Q:
If I lose my Hider 2 password, is there a way to recover hidden items?
A:

If you did not back up your Hider 2 password with Keychain Access application and did actually forget it, there is no way we can recover your files. Please make sure you back up the Hider 2 password that secures your confidential files.

Q:
Can I hide applications using Hider 2?
A:

No, you cannot. After a system integrity check, Gate Keeper may reject application launch for apps that were unhidden from Hider 2.
