Hide personal information such as credit card numbers and files.

Overview

Concealer stores information in the form of cards and uses the latest encryption methods (AES-256) to protect information such as credit card numbers, passwords, software license codes, files of any type, and much more.

Account Information. Account cards in Concealer come with various templates that make storing credit card info, passwords, and much more very simple. Just choose a category, copy your information into the pre-defined fields, and know that your information is protected from unwanted eyes. Concealer can also copy multiple fields to the Clipboard to make pasting it into login or payment forms a real snap.

Files and Folders. Concealer not only hides your files, but also protects them using AES-256 encryption, in a sparse bundle. Use the master password or assign a separate password for twice the protection. Adding files to a file storage card is as simple as a drag and drop from the Finder. Easy and effective.

Text Files. Have your information in a text file? Don't feel like copying it to various fields? Just copy and paste it into a note card and format it right inside Concealer. This can also be a great way to hide diaries or other sensitive text documents. What it comes down to is that regardless of the information, Concealer can protect it in any form!

With the Lite version, you are limited to creating five cards, three notes, and one file storage. Once you enter a license code ($19.99) in Concealer Lite, these limitations are lifted.

When I purchased Concealer from Mac Update no activation code was sent to me. Instead I was directed to install Macupdate and told that my software would automatically activate in 24 hours, which it didn't. I ended up buying a license from BeLight, which gave me an activation code at the time of purchase, no gimmicks or misleading confusion.

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)

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

I fully use all of 1Password and Concealer works great with it. I try to keep 1Password lean and clean with not a lot of junk in it. Concealer is where I keep all the junk I don't want busying up 1Password. I save every email sent to me with a serial number, download link for registered software, welcome emails w/account info, receipts of all kinds, account setup emails, pdfs with security questions and their answers -- and on and on with various emails with important info. I realize there's a place in 1Password where I can put all the various documents of importance but like i said, i like to keep 1Password uncluttered and lean. So Concealer is great for putting all these various docs and keeping them well organized too. For serial numbers, i create a main folder called "Serial Numbers." Then i create subfolders in the Serial Number folder for every application i have with a serial number -- 1Password, BetterZip, Cocktail, Photoshop, Pixelmator and on and on -- and simply throw in all emails or information of importance into its corresponding folder. For accounts -- Twitter, Facebook, Macupdate, Amazon, eBay etc., I do the same thing. For credit cards -- same thing. For email accounts -- same thing. And so on and so forth. In 1Password I fill in the fields; in Concealer I keep all related documentation. Why keep all your eggs in one basket? All Concealer is is a a 256-bit AES encrypted sparse disk image. But Concealer adds a nice interface to the image along with nice organizational and searching abilities. I'm hoping BeLight keeps supporting and updating it. It's nice and simple and there's not much that can go wrong -- it's as safe and simple as using Disk Utility. I used Espionage before but it adds iSpy.kext to the Extensions folder and that leaves me a little worried, even though nothing ever went wrong with Espionage and it's made by a very reputable company. and i still use Paperless when i ever get around to neatly organizing stuff. i use DEVONthink daily but not for secure stuff. so Concealer is great to have around as a nice 256-bit AES encrypted sparse disk image to toss sensitive docs into -- no fuss, uncomplicated, safe and very secure.

I'm a sucker for great UI, ad for a few more hours Concealer is a bargain, but Robk is right. 1P does this and scads of additional things already, does them better, and I'm continually delighted with the improvements they continue to add. I wish the developer had spent tis effort building a product for an area that is not already being covered so well by existing apps.

Concealer tries to do three things: 1) Provide a secure place to store login/passwords for websites 2) Provide a secure place to store notes; and, 3) Provide a secure place to store files. IMHO, it does 2) and 3) fairly well. But if you have LOTS of notes and files to store, you may find the interface difficult to use to fond the right notes or file. If you are used to 1Password for website login passwords, you will probably be disappointed with VERSION 1 of Concealer. It does not look like there are any browser plugins to make it easy to login to sites, You need to cut and past passwords etc from Concealer. Not as convenient in my view. For websites passwords, I prefer 1Password or Lastpass over Concealer. Or if you want a totally free open source alternative, try KeePassX. For storing notes, I prefer 1Password (or just store the notes in a Mac encrypted Disk Image or a TrueCrypt encrypted Disk Image). For storing files, I prefer Mac encrypted Disk Images or TrueCrypt encrypted Disk Images. Both are free. (If you want an organizational tool, try Yojimbo etc but store the database in a Mac encrypted Disk Image or a TrueCrypt encrypted Disk Image for added security). Concealer is at VERSION 1. I suspect that many of of its shortcomings will be addressed in version 2. Lets' hope so. I like to see more competition in this area to give programs like 1Password a run for its money.

I love this so much! I have used Yojimbo for information like this but stopped because the thought of losing my laptop with all my sensitive info saved on it terrified me. The user interface is great and I love how easy it is to create secure folders where I can keep random financial pdfs, spreadsheets and other documents that I wouldn't want others to see. All you have to do when you are done with your info is hit the "Lock" button and it is all safe. This makes me feel a lot safe about keeping sensitive info on my laptop.
