Control access to files and programs.

Overview

MacPermitWizard is a powerful security software that controls the access to your files, folders and applications. You can lock your personal files with passwords by creating simple permissions, in order to stop other users from peeking into your record. Moreover, you can protect sensitive system files from modification or destruction, control application execution processes, and prohibit the execution of critical programs and utilities. Locked files or folders are visible to users, but are protected from access by MacPermitWizard permissions. None can read, write, delete, or execute the locked file or folder. The sub-folders and files in a locked folder are also protected. MacPermitWizard does not modify or encrypt the protected files, thus it will never slow down the system, and will not endanger your data. Admin password protects MacPermitWizard itself, none can change Global permissions or uninstall MacPermitWizard without admin password.

Note to the dev: Macs do not need or use "wizards," which are dark ages things created by Microsoft for their equally ancient Windows. Macs do not rely on supernatural magic but rather have the more realistic "assistants" helping us. :-) :-) :-)

Anyone familiar with how to set permissions inside the Finder's Get Info window can already perform all of what is described here. A similar application is BatChmod.

I wonder if the security offered by this app can be bypassed by booting the computer from another drive?

From what's described here, the only things being manipulated are the UNIX permissions which are part of OS X. Therefore, expect the same as usual. IOW: Anyone accessing the disk would be subject to the permissions settings.

I agree with Derek’s assessment, however, if you start in Target Disk Mode and attach the “disk” to another computer, you can disable permissions and have full access to the files.

So no, you aren’t protected, really, with this software.
