I may yet be proven correct, but so far it doesn’t look as though too many of the great unwashed masses of Mac, PC, or smartphone users care much about privacy. Maybe it’s because our devices are so easily hacked that we just don’t care anymore. If you care about privacy, here’s a cheap and easy way to hide important files from prying eyes.
If You Can’t See It, Is It There?
It doesn’t take much to create a complex and still not quite secure backup system for your Mac’s files. What about those files you just don’t want to share with anyone?
Far too many computer users have incriminating photos or videos or legal documents and critical and valuable information these days.
How do you hide it all? At the low end of the scale is a simple app called Invisible and all it does is hide files you don’t want others to see.
It isn’t so much the security that Invisible provides. It’s the ease-of-use, and the quick way to hide documents with little effort that makes it a good first line of defense.
Select the files you want to hide and drag them to the Invisible app.
Drag and drop. And, add a password for more protection.
That’s all you need to do to get started.
Invisible simply hides the files from visible view, so even if someone steals your Mac the password protection will keep files safely hidden away.
The files you’ve hidden are still on your Mac, and could be found by a thief if they know exactly where to look.
Out of sight, and out of mind is a slogan but it’s hard to find what you can’t see and that’s what Invisible does to files. It makes them invisible. Open Invisible to find them and bring them back into view (with a password).
There are other safety measures to hid and secure sensitive files, but most are more expensive, and definitely more complex. That’s what makes Invisible a worthy option. It’s easy and inexpensive.
