Does it also password protect preferences files and profiles? Take Firefox and Safari for instance; bookmarks being stored outside these applications, what if they are locked but anyone can sneak into bookmarks files? The Console is password protected but log files are accessible easily. Same thing for mailboxes.

Interesting thought. I have some ideas how technically to do this.
Can you please contact us about this at info@osxbytes

Can this take photos during failed login attempts or is that a planned feature?

Sure, shouldn't be too difficult to add.
Will put your request on the todo list.

Since Espionage cannot password protect apps anymore like it used to in the old 2.x version(s), this is exactly what I was looking for. Simple and lightweight and so far very stable even in beta-stage. Looks very promising indeed.

Depending on what type of security you're after, you might want to take a look at the recently introduced "Folders Action" feature of Espionage: https://www.taoeffect.com/blog/2013/05/espionage-3-5-introducing-folder-actions/

Great unique app imo
Could be useful when your kids uses your Mac and you do not want to make an additional account.
Not sure it is wise to use beta software for security. :-)
Anyhow, its worth checking out and I look forward to the release.

iLock is an absolutely brilliant security app ! It is so simple to use and works as advertised.

One thing I would like to see is a way to choose your own key-shortcut to expose the iLock settings. I mean, ctrl+alt+cmd+i is a bit awkward to handle. ;-)
But this is just nitpicking .. this is truly a very useable app and one I to keep an eye on !
