Obscurity is a handy little utility for hiding all those private files and precious memories you don't want anyone else to find.

The application is as simple as it is elegant. Obscurity seems just like a generic folder. Simply place the 'folder' anywhere you want, and anyone snooping around your stuff deciding to double-click it will unknowingly arrive in an empty mock folder. However, if you right-click the 'folder' and choose 'Show Package Contents' from the contextual menu, a completely different folder will show up ready for you to hide all those intimate movies, pictures and old love letters in. It even hides all more...

What's New

Version 1.4:

  • Obscurity now supports OS X 10.7 Lion or newer with 'Gatekeeper' disabled.
  • Fixed bug that prevented the renaming of the mock folder when renaming Obscurity itself on OS X 10.7 Lion or newer.


  • OS X 10.3 or later
