Hider is hidden
The most loved vault for Mac, 2009 to 2019
After 10 years of protecting your most cherished files and securing your most sensitive data, Hider has hidden itself in the great digital beyond.
Hard-working software tools, like all good things, have a life cycle. And when they come to a close, it allows their creators to focus on even more useful and exciting projects.
We at MacPaw are humbled by what Hider and its users have taught us development and are already eagerly chipping away at newer, stronger marvels in design.

How it will work
Hider will continue to function for those who have it installed, but there is a risk of data loss as it will no longer be updated for compatibility with the latest versions of macOS.
To secure your files, we recommend “unhiding” them, which will decrypt and restore them to their original locations on your Mac.
To keep your files safe, store them in iCloud. iCloud uses secure encryption, syncs between your devices, and is locked with the same password you use to access your Apple account. Notes can also be stored securely in the Apple Notes app. At MacPaw, we use 1Password to keep our sensitive files and login information in our own hands—it’s a fantastic option. For locking simple, individual files, use Encrypto for free.
Your personal privacy and data security are extraordinarily important. MacPaw values the power of privacy because it’s what allows us to act autonomously and to truly express our creativity. The end of Hider is by no means an end to these principles in our products. It’s fuel to move privacy forward.
