Hider 2 by MacPaw was discontinued on 2019-07.10.

SimpleumSafe is a suitable alternative / replacement to Hider 2

SimpleumSafe is an encryption and document management solution for macOS and iOS and is suitable for both private and business use.
Unlike Hider 2, files are not decrypted directly in the file system for use. SimpleumSafe has its own Finder and can work directly with the encrypted files. While Hider 2 at encryption and decryption leaves data traces on the Mac this is not the case with SimpleumSafe.

  • Secure encryption with AES-256

  • Synchronization: iCloud, Folder, Wireless

  • For macOS and iOS

  • Only one-time costs

  • GDPR compliant

Switch from Hider 2 to SimpleumSafe

It’s a good idea to create a small Safe to get to know and familiarize yourself with this Safe with SimpleumSafe. Since you can create as many Safes as you like, this has no effect on the data taken over by Hider 2.
