Switch from Hider 2 to F-Vault, the best alternative to and replacement for Hider 2 for macOS

As you may know, support for Hider 2 by MacPaw ended in 2020. If you are looking for a suitable alternative or replacement, F-Vault is one of the apps you should try. Please check the website of F-Vault

1. F-Vault is even better than Hider 2

Yes, Hider 2 is a very famous app, but one feature of F-Vault is even better. You can import any files into the vault in just seconds, even for some large files. After importing the file, you can still open it with the application you installed, just like regular operation. Still, there is no remnant of the file path where the file was located. Isn't that amazing? Although it's not encrypted using AES-256 or any other fancy encryption methods, it is sufficient for a typical consumer user to use it to hide files. You don't need to decrypt any of the files to use them. Of course, it's password-protected, so no need to worry about security.

2. No Size Limitations

Every file you import is saved in your local storage. You don't need to worry about data leaks or cloud storage limitations.

3. Password Protected - no user email leaks.

You can just set a password locally and not have to deal with email signup. If you're worried about forgetting your password, you can set a recovery email.
