Secure private folders and important application data by encrypting it and placing it in protected vaults, with this easy-to-use tool

editor's review





Despite the numerous security measures that can be taken when storing data on digital devices, it is hard to ensure other people cannot access sensitive information. This can be a problem on private systems, but especially if your Mac is commonly used by numerous people.

Short of restricting access to your machine entirely, there are few ways to keep your private files and folders away from prying eyes. MacFort is an intuitive OS X app that can provide a solution to this issue, by storing valuable data in password-protected vaults.

Built-in scanning module that can locate and recommend files for encryption

Assuming you do not already have a list of items that you want to secure, you can have MacFort scan your system for potentially sensitive files that should be protected.

The app can locate data saved to your iTunes and iPhoto libraries, browser history, mailbox, iChat conversation history and much more. You can then select the ones you wish to secure and choose which vault they should be saved to.

Customizable vaults that can be used to store files and folders securely

When launching MacFort for the first time, you are prompted to create a vault that will be used for storing data. You can enter a custom password and specify where on your Mac the generated vault should be placed.

It can be saved as a sparse disk image or DMG file and secured with either 256-bit or 128-bit encryption algorithms.

Easy-to-access status bar menu for locating protected content quickly

Once you have created one or more vaults, you may not wish to always bring up the application's main interface to unlock them and gain access to the files they contain. To this end, MacFort displays an icon in your status bar, making it possible to encrypt, decrypt and open the locked vaults effortlessly.

All in all, this is a straightforward app that provides you with a simple, but secure method of protecting important files and folders, by placing them in encrypted vaults anywhere on your Mac.
