From incriminating photos to top secret documents to personal or business financial information, we all have our fair share of files that need to be hidden from prying eyes.
How? That’s the question. OS X has a few ways to create disk images and apply encryption and passwords, but the whole process is anything but Mac friendly. Espionage is. Mac friendly, that is. Manage files and folders of files right from the Mac’s Menubar, even down to automatically locking files, and applying military grade encryption.
Espionage is so good, so simple to use, yet has multiple layers of protection for those folders of files you don’t want any to see, that you’re inclined to use it often. Work right from a single click in the Menubar to protect what you don’t want to share.
Select a folder on your Mac, adjust settings, and you’re good to go while your files stay secured.
Espionage can protect folders or folders and files within a folder. Add a different password for each folder, and control the size of the disk image where the folder is stored.
Security is handled by AES-256 bit encryption and Scrypt yet plays nice-nice with Time Machine, Dropbox, and other backup apps and systems.
While the Espionage interface is simple enough to use (click the Menubar icon), there are new terms to learn, including Mountpoint and Disk image. Once you realize what they are then everything else falls into place and you’ll find it easy to encrypt and secure files and folders.
