Nice concept and I've been using it for quite a while, but beware corrupt repositories!

Vital to make regular backup copies.

I opened my repository, which is on a USB stick, this evening and inside were ... no accounts, no files, no cards.

Closed everything down carefully in order, restarted Concealer, upgraded from version 1.1 to 1.2 and restarted. Checked which repository it was pointing to, typed the password and got a pop-up to say "the repository may be corrupt". For "may be corrupt" read "is dead and gone".

I don't know what causes this, but it's happened before and I find it scary. If I'm trusting an app to keep my data secure I'd like it to demonstrate better stability than this.

I don't know whether I'm going to stick with Concealer. I might be happier if there were some built-in auto backup facility. Even so, it's a pain having to rebuild from backups and if I don't make a [not corrupt!] copy every time then I lose whatever I've done in between.

I've been looking for some time for a way to secure a lot of private data stored in different formats — spreadsheets, PDF's, docs, photos, mail etc. They've been scattered all over my computer in encrypted disk images, hidden folders etc. I use 1Password extensively, but it's not suitable for my purposes and I also don't want a ton of files taking up space on my iOS devices and iCloud backups. Concealer has become my one big catch-all for things I want to keep secure.

What I like about Concealer is its simplicity. Easy to use, disappears when I'm finished. It needs minimal work to keep things organized, and has a good search function for finding things nested in subfolders. I do prefer 1Password for filling in passwords etc. on websites.

One caveat: study how the trash functions work before you start deleting items; I played around with junk files in the beginning and found myself accidentally permanently deleting one. Likewise, understand what might be leaving behind unsecured on your computer when you add things to the vault. Documentation information on this is clear.

I asked the developer about the difference between buying the direct version from their website versus the version in the App Store. As with some other apps, you're best off buying directly from the developer's site. Unfortunately, because of App Store technical requirements, the devs won't be able to continue updating the App Store version with full functionality.

Great app, but I would give it all 5 stars only after developer introduces a companion app for iOS, so we can sync data with all devices.

A friend of mine says that the US-governement requires that in encryption-tools must be an access with a master-password (backdoor) - Is that true?

Can I install the tools on my - multiple - Macs (iMac + MacBook+MacMini+...) and will it work?

I do have a licence, but - so far - don't use it (for the above reasons)

There is no master-password option for backdoor.

Concealer can be installed on several Mac computers, as long as you are the only user of these computers.

As if the developers would ever tell you LOL.
a) Read the news? it ain't just the US gov't friend
b) No encryption will out hack the NSA et alia, so don't sweat it
c) got a smartphone, are you on wifi, a national internet grid? then if they wanted in, they already are in '-)

I got Concealer as part of the Productive Macs bundle, released November 2012. I bought the bundle on the strength of some of the other programs, and so I tried Concealer for the first time with no expectations whatsoever.

This app is great. I don't use the secure notes feature, since I already had 1Password covering all that.

But Concealer does a great job with secure/hidden file storage. Baiscally, it creates secure .dmg files, but it also puts those .dmg files in a place where they won't show up: Create a repository, and it's hidden away in ~/Library/Application Support, in a bundle that says nothing about what's inside, and which can't be opened without a password. Your secure .dmg grows up to a size you specify.

The feature set is simple, and is implemented in a way that should have you up and running within a few minutes.

Some of the terminology is inconsistent or ambiguous. Generally, Concealer stores a "Card Repository," which didn't really explain to me whether that's where the secure file storage went (it is). But at the initial "New..." dialogue, it refers to a "Library," which is, I think, a "Card Repository."

Nonetheless, it's easy to use, and a good value.

This is a very nice app. It'd be even nicer if one could group various accounts, notes etc. being visible side by side. Also, icons are too similar in colour and design
