MacFort enables you to easily encrypt and protect your most sensitive files.
Clear prompts: When you first open MacFort, it gives you very clear prompts to walk you through creating your first vault. This is the encrypted portion of your computer where you can store any specific items that you want to keep protected. Even if it is your first time using additional encryption software, you should have no problem creating a vault and protecting your first files.
Clean interface: MacFort does a very good job of sticking to a minimalist design strategy. It gives you a simple row of control icons and a listing of your vaults. This makes the program look good, while also making it easier to use.
Customizable security: The best thing about this software is how it allows you to put security exactly where you want it. You can drag anything you want into a given vault, thereby protecting it with a password. This is a great way to put additional security on your important files without having the stress of entering a password every time you want to open something innocuous on your computer.
Lack of manual uninstall: One of the best things about OS X was how easy it was to uninstall apps by just dragging them to the trash. MacFort comes with a clear warning that you must use the included uninstaller rather than using the old method. This is cumbersome compared to simply dragging apps to the trash.
If you've ever wished you could boost security on certain important files, MacFort is for you. It is easy to set up and is completely customizable, so you get the exact amount of security you want and nothing more.
Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of MacFort for Mac 188.8.131.52.
MacFort will allow you to securely store your important files by creating password protected, encrypted vaults. Using AES 128-bit, or 256-bit encryption algorithms; no one can open an encrypted vault without knowing the correct password. When you open your favorite applications (e.g, Apple Mail), MacFort will prompt you for a password to open the vault - if the password is entered incorrectly, Mail will be prevented from accessing the email messages. Therefore, your important files will be completely inaccessible to anyone who does not know your vault password.
