Espionage for Mac3.7.3

16 January 2021

Simple, state-of-the-art encryption and plausible deniability for your data.

What is Espionage for Mac

Espionage offers state-of-the-art encryption and plausible deniability for your confidential data.

Sometimes, encrypting your data isn't enough to protect it. That's why Espionage 3 goes beyond data encryption. You can create multiple master passwords, each protecting an isolated set of folders. Every protected folder can also advertise completely different data, depending on whether it's locked or unlocked. Espionage 3 is also the most secure Espionage yet, featuring AES-256 encryption by default, and scrypt to protect your passwords from even the most powerful of adversaries.

Features
  • Source code available for security professionals.
  • Designed for plausible deniability. Multiple master passwords through Folder Sets. Want two versions of your email? Espionage can handle that.
  • Enhances deniable encryption by creating fake Folder Sets and fake disk images.
  • Laptop-theft tracking apps (like Undercover) work when using Espionage without FileVault.
  • Super-computer defying encryption: AES-256 + scrypt.
  • Silent. Espionage 3 doesn't make it easy for people to know what's encrypted.
  • Folder Actions make it easy to encrypt your email.
  • Quickly access folders via the menu bar and keyboard shortcuts.
  • Works with your favorite backup software like Time Machine and Dropbox.
  • Optionally prevent folder contents from showing up in Spotlight even when the folder is unlocked.
  • High-quality customer support. Yes, given how terrible customer support can be, we consider this a feature.

Before I rely on a company to encrypt my data, the one problem I have is will that company be there 10 years from now? Will their software still be compatible with Mac OS 10.22? Or is this a fly by night company that will leave your data suddenly unusable years from now? I don't know yet. So I'm standing pat and watching this company. Does Espionage allow you to manage Sparse Encrypted Disk Images like Knox does? I would be very interested and probably buy it if it did. If the company croaks, at least Mac OS can decrypt the disk images.

A rather innocent and stupid question: I am using espionage 3 to encrypt my sensible data. When i am backing up my data with time machine, the encrypted espionage folders are not backed up like the rest of my non-encrypted-folders... Right? How can i include my espionage folders in the time-machine-backup on my mac? Thanks

Important: Starting in 3.6.3, we've dropped support for 10.7, 10.8, and 10.9 because all of these operating systems are insecure. Please see our blog post for further details about this: https://www.taoeffect.com/blog/2016/02/espionage-3-6-3-drops-10-7-10-8-10-9-sparklegate-fix/

Looks like nice software, but... no support for encrypted folders on network volumes. Most of my data resides on a centralised shared network, so cannot use Espionage for it... If it would have supported any volume, I might purchase a license.

Beware that if you want to open the encrypted files anywhere else other than the the mac you installed it on, you need to copy some hidden essential database files over as well. There are no warnings or reminder that you need to backup this database file if you ever lose the mac or want to recover the encrypted files. If you go to the forums of this app you'll see that there are tons of people who have lost their important files because of this very reason. The design of this part of the app is poor in my opinion. Hopefully you have a backup somewhere that isn't encrypted but that pretty much defeats the purpose of having this app..

What's really holding me back from using Espionage regularly is the lack of an iOS client. I would love to use this to protect my DropBox folder, but until I can access those files in iOS, it is less useful to me. I appreciate the advantages to using this on my computer, and I own a copy, but I find I don't use it as I might because of this lack.

I have been using Espionage from former version 2 to protect my data from prying eyes and I found version 3 over the top (at least from when it has left the App Store! :-). It implements in a flawless way the encrypted vaults available with Mac OS X and automates easily their use. The plausible deniability is excellent. The program is excellent. The best available on Mac.

Hello, I have been using Espionage for a couple of years with great satisfaction: simple, efficient, perfect. Now recently I had to migrate from one computer to another and needed support to find my encrypted files again. I got an amazing, personal, one on one support that I only wish I did get when I deal with big companies!!! So I have only praises to sing for this software and big thanks for their support again!

I'm uninstalling Espionage 3 and reverting to Espionage 2 as I really dislike the way version 3 operates. From being asked to enter the unlock password at login, to the way it unlocks the folders, etc. I think version 2 is so much more transparent.
