MySafe for Mac

CNET Editors' review

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.

A default built-in feature of the Mac OS X allows you to create password-protected folders. However, MySafe for Mac achieves this much more quickly, with the help of a friendly and intuitive interface. This app will be welcomed by anyone who wishes to protect their files and folders from others using the same machine.

    "Use Apple's provided Disk Utility instead"

    May 21, 2013  |   By zunipus

    Version: MySafe 6.2

    Pros

    Quicker creation of what you can already do in Disk Utility. Unique icons.

    Cons

    You can do the same thing already in Apple's provided Disk Utility. I've been doing it for years.

    Summary

    Huh? Maybe this is useful for newbies. But I find this to be unnecessary as I have been doing the same thing using Apple's provided Disk Utility for years. There are plenty of tutorials on the Internet on how to created encrypted, password protected sparsedisk and sparse bundle disk images with 128-bit or 256-bit encryption. It works beautifully and keeps the surveillance goons out of your business.

    It bothers me that you have to 'license' this thing to get any decent use out of it when in fact there isn't much of anything new here. PASS!

    "Quid pro quo does not equal "free""

    November 27, 2012  |   By summerstormpictures

    Version: MySafe 5.2

    Pros

    A curious idea.

    Cons

    Just because no money exchanges hands doesn't mean something is "free." Why do developers think it is okay to list something as "free" when it is not? The excuse here will be that there is not way to list properly because requiring a "like" on Facebook is not addressed. The simple truth is, if something is free, it is free--it requires no quid pro quo.

    Summary

    Perhaps it's the obvious lack of mastery of the English language evident in the description. Perhaps it's a misunderstanding of what the word "free" means, but either way, the fact that a developer abuses the concept of "free" to bait and switch, makes at least one person out here suspicious of motive.
