Lock for Mac2.3.2

13 February 2021

Password-protect apps.

What is Lock for Mac

Lock allows you to password-protect any macOS application against unauthorised usage without modifying anything in your system settings and/or applications. It is safe to use!

Features
  • Invisible to the Eye: Lock Pro works as a background process and does not uses any CPU load while idle.
  • Caught on Camera: See who tried to launch your protected applications with failed attempts.
  • Logging: Keep track when someone tries to start your protected apps.
  • Premium support by email

What's new in Lock

Version 2.3.2:
  • Fixed issue that could crash Lock Pro (and no password was needed to unlock apps)

Only three stars, because it's easy to circumvent in many cases: just change the app's bundle ID in the nested Info.plist. If after that modification macOS (not Lock/LockPro) doesn't let the app launch, remove the quarantine XA or even apply a new code signature. So Lock & Lock Pro are only really useful for applications that have certain protections, e.g. system apps like Mail, Safari or Messages (which you can't modify, and which probably wouldn't launch, even if you *could* modify them), or certain apps with elevated privileges, e.g. apps access to your Mail folder. (You might still unlock those, but you'd need a proper new code signature for that.) But all that doesn't mean it's worthless… being able to protect Mail & Messages is definitely a plus.

Very good tool to protect your apps separately. Works as advertised.

Nice to put protection on single apps. Works as expected with a intrusive UI.

I noticed the AppStore includes a free version too. Limited to only protect one app.

Unobtrusive, until it needs to be. Works as advertised. Full disclosure: beta-tested this product.
