App says that I enter a wrong password. I have similar passwords for all accounts so I pretty sure that I enter the right password. Nobody could change password for this application except me.

I have only one gues/explanation. After File Hider installation and password setup i changed my Mac's password method form iCloud password to the local password for Mac. Maybe this could change application safety properties?

Of course there is a VERY small chance that I entered a wrong password during password setup procedure. But i don't believe that this is the case. Anyway. What solution can you offer?

1) Is it possible to completely reinstall the software so i could setup the password again?
2) Is it possible to access hidden files?
