Security is the number one concern for businesses and individuals protecting their computer files. The issue with many encryption programs is that they can be difficult to use, hard to understand, or worse, mislead you into believing that your files are fully protected.

For those who use Macs, there is a new program designed to encrypt and hide your files called Hider 2 which offers a simple, intuitive program to use.

Furthermore, the program hides your files in the Mac so they cannot be easily discovered. While you will have no trouble retrieving the data, Hider 2 ensures that hackers will have a difficult time even finding the files that you have encrypted. Plus, if they do ever discover them, the encryption program makes it nearly impossible for them to unlock the data.

How It Works

First, the date is encrypted using the powerful AES-256 program that offers the best in security so that your files remain safe. Then, the data can only be unlocked with your password, ensuring that no one gets into the data or app without knowing your password which provides an additional layer of protection.

Finally, the data itself is stored in a system outside of your Mac so that if a hacker somehow reaches into your computer, they cannot find the data because it is stored in an outside system that is totally disconnected. Hider 2 is based on the simple premise that data which cannot be found is data that hackers will never find since they will be unaware of its presence.
