Espionage for Mac adds basic security to file folders in a streamlined application. The program comes with a free trial version with a 14-day use limit.
After an easy installation, Espionage for Mac opens a setup assistant that prompts the user to enter a master password. The application rates it for its level of security, and encourages the user to enter those that have additional characters. After passing this screen, the program asks the user to enter the password one additional time to start the application. This brings up a small window where the user can drag and drop folders for securing. Once placed in the application, other users cannot open them unless they enter the appropriate password. The window, while lacking advanced graphics, is easy to use and would pose no problems even for inexperienced users. Support for product updates, the option to change the master password, and preferences are available via a settings menu.
Espionage for Mac works well without any complicated functions and would be suitable for users looking to add another level of password protection to certain documents.
