Hide Folders is a freely available program for Mac OS X which allows users to protect documents and folders. With a single click a user can easily protect his private files or folders. You can be assured that such protected files cannot be deleted, edited or viewed by others. The program has a very good user interface and is easy to use as it works just as you are used to do things everyday with your Mac. To hide a folder all you need to do is just drag the folder in hide folder window and it’s hidden. To un-hide and show the folder, select the folder and click on show button.
The free version has the option to hide files and folders only and it can’t password protect your files and folders. If you want to add password protection feature to files and folders – then you need to buy Pro version.
