The frequent use of a computer by multiple users may lead, on many occasions, to some unpleasant incidents. Whether it's a home computer or an office computer, we often store personal files and we want to be the only ones to have access to them. MySafe for Mac allows you to easily create virtual password-protected folders where you can store any kind of files.
Even though it's available as freeware, in order to use all features of MySafe for Mac, it is mandatory that you request a license via e-mail. Without the license you can only create folders of up to 100MB and you will not be notified when someone tries to open the folder. The only downside of this license procedure is that you'll find out about it only after you have made all the configurations. Without the license, if the folder size exceeds 100MB, you'll have to start over with the setup. Installing this app is easily done through drag-and-drop, anywhere on the hard disk. It is a standalone app and its name can be changed in order to hide it from other users.
