Review: Protect passwords and other personal data with Concealer for Mac

Save passwords and other personal information safely with Concealer for Mac.

Keeping personal information like credit card data or Social Security numbers safe is becoming ever more important. Concealer for Mac is fairly well designed, making it an adequate option for users trying to store their private information securely.

Concealer for Mac offers a free trial version with a storage limit. The full version is available without limitations for a payment of $19.95. Despite the lack of a native installer, the program downloaded and installed quickly. After initiating the program, it brings up a menu for tutorial videos, although none of them loaded. After closing this menu, the program requests the user enter a master password to access all of the stored information. Unfortunately, the application does not require an advanced, secure password, which could defeat its overall purpose. The main menu is well designed, with easy to recognize buttons along the top window for adding accounts, locking the program, and other useful options. Once information is entered, the program stores it in an easy to see folder type menu, which provides easier location and access when needed. However, the lack of additional features, such as password generation or direct log-in to popular Web pages is a detriment.

While basically functional, Concealer for Mac lacks features available in other password and data management programs.
