Hide files and folders.


Developer website: nova media MDS GmbH

UberMask hides files and folders on your Mac, quick and easy.

Use UberMask, a MacWorld MacGem 2011 pick, to hide your private data from curious eyes with cyberspeed. And there is no chance that your family members, collegues or friends stumble across your files and folders when using your Mac.

Even Spotlight will not find your hidden data!

Neither the Finder nor Spotlight will be able to detect the hidden data. You can always run UberMask to see which files are hidden thoughout your disks, to hide more files or to reveal files.

Hide all selected data with a simple key stroke

Choose a hotkey combination and activate it anytime to hide your data. The UberMask app does not have run or be launched for the hotkeys to operate. It works like magic and keeps your conscience clean whenever your Mac is used by someone else.

Mac|Life Rated: Good
If you're a secret keeper, ÜberMask is useful and inconspicuous. It's not hacker-proof, but it'll certainly keep your confidential files and folders safe from the prying eyes of coworkers, kids, or your partner.

For Mac Eyes Only Rated: 4 out of 5 Macs
If you have need for something like ÜberMask for simple file security, then I recommend giving it a try. Yes, this is something you could do on your own without ÜberMask, but this app makes it easy to do, meaning it's more likely you'll do it.
