Tech Specs

Hider 2 requires Mac OS X 10.8+ and 30MB of free disk space. Note: You should note that even though Hider 2 only requires 30MB for installation, you also need an amount of free space equal to the file you wish to hide. For example, if you wish to hide a file that is 1GB in size, you must have 1GB of free space to encrypt and hide the file. The app will not permanently occupy this free space, it is only temporarily necessary for the encryption function.

Pricing

Hider 2 costs $19.99. Get it right now on the Mac App Store.
