If you are sharing a computer with other people, either at work or home, then you may need an application that can help you secure your sensitive files and folders, providing you with the privacy solution you need. This is an application that is able to hide your selected data from a third-party access. After installation, you will be prompted to input a master password for the application, which will also be required when you want to uninstall the application.
The application has a pretty basic interface which is easy to understand and important features can be accessed from the main window. You can add files and folders to the application’s list through the file browser and by clicking the “Hide” button, all the selected items on the list will be hidden on your computer. To “unhide” an item, right-click on it to reveal the context menu.
The application also allows you to backup and restore data, change the master password, enable grid lines and open files without going to the file locations.
All in all, the application helps to hide away your personal data from other users and it comes with a help file, which can be useful.
