Encrypt application data with password protection.

Overview

MacFort is an innovative utility which gives you the ability to easily encrypt and password protect individual files and folders, applications and their associated files. With just 2 clicks, MacFort lets you password protect several applications data on your Mac (Ex: Dropbox, Apple Mail, iPhoto Library, Outlook for Mac, Day One, Evernote, Notes, Reminders, browser history, Contacts, or any individual files and folders you'd like to keep away from prying eyes.

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. Additionally, MacFort will automatically close and lock your vaults as you exit your protected applications.

MacFort also allows you to encrypt and password protect individual folders and files. If you need to password lock individual files or folders, just add them to MacFort through our easy to use application interface, and MacFort will do the rest for you.

If you are using MacFort and your Mac becomes lost or is stolen, you know that no one else can read your confidential files. You can even put the encrypted vaults on an external drive or a network drive. With this method, you can save a lot of hard disk space and your data will be protected, secure and recoverable in the event of loss, theft, or system failure. MacFort is also completely compatible with Time Machine.

This comprehensible app encrypts and protects with password files, folders, applications and their associated files. It uses AES 128 or 256 bit encryption standard (however you may use the same via Disk Utility ) There is no way to see encrypted files without MacFort app. If Mac is lost o stolen your private files remain protected. Nice job.

this is the worst app ever. I used it to encrypt my photos and keep them private then I uninstalled the application and it deleted all my photos with it.

This is a great app, it gives us the functionality that the most recent version of espionage app removed, namely proteced applications. The developer is also very responsive to suggestions and appears to be working on new functionality all the time.

Here we are one month later and several of the features I suggested are already in the new version. Very fast release cycle. The developer really listens to the customers. Wonderful.

I tried MacFort because i really need to password protect mailboxes in Mac Mail,MacFort does exactly what it claims to do, and with no fuss. If the author can give the product a more modern look and feel,that's gonna be better.

Would love to agree it does what it says after a months fair use. However, security and privacy aren't among the features. 1. Yes it does create a pw protected disk image with encryption. However, information isn't kept secure. Why? Because the app opens any disk image it owns without requesting any password- neither system nor 24 character secure password upon entry. Just click the image and it's mounted, full access to everything stored there. 2. Automatic dismount on shut down ok. However mounted in an external drive and accessed by another LAN Mac the disk is again visible and mountable. Sure, you can't mount the disk unless password is known this time. Whilst it performs basic create and save/ dismount disk images, there isn't any security worth noting except for inexperienced and naive new users.

Hi,i am the developer of MacFort,if you select "Store this password in your keychain" when you create an encrypted vault,or when you want to mount a valut and you're prompted for your password,you might see a check box that tells MacFort to remember that password.If you select the check box,MacFort will remember that password and stop prompting you for it every time. We recommend that you don't select "store password to keychain" or "remember password" if you want to enter your password whenever you need to mount an encrypted vault,we really hope you can do more tests and don't jump at conclusion.MacFort offers more than simply encrypting files and folders.

Two negatives and yet only one opinion expressed. SO what does the either guy think? Not able to refute my comments on performance? Perhaps you are right. I'll check it again.

Actually I 'm not sure about the exact meaning of "However mounted in an external drive and accessed by another LAN Mac the disk is again visible and mountable",if a vault in an external drive is opened by another mac on a local network,of course it will keep opening when you shutdown your mac,because forcing close vault may cause data loss if a file is currently being written to the vault by the mac on the lan. If you want to unmount(mount) an encrypted vault,just double-click in the list of vaults to unmount(mount) it.And if you don't want to mount an vault at system start,please make sure "Keep open vaults open when start" is not checked in preferences. Anyway,please contact support@madowsoft.com If you have any questions about MacFort:)
