Cisdem Announces Release of AppCrypt - Encrypt Your Apps on Mac

Cisdem, an innovative Mac applications developer, has announced the recent release of AppCrypt for Mac, an app for Mac OS X that gives users the ability to password protect their OS X applications from suspicious eyes of the others.

Going above and beyond the functionalities of most secure solutions that exist on Mac, this app provides users with a perfect balance of practicality and flexibility. It has the power to safely password protect iPhoto, iTunes, Contacts, Facebook or any other applications on Mac. User simply need to set a password and add the apps to the lock list, no one will be able to access the protected apps unless they have the correct password.

"OS X has its own built-in encryption software FileVault for users of OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later. But there’s no built-in ability to lock individual apps, With the rising need to protect one's Mac OS X apps, AppCrypt has arrived to level the playing field for all Mac users by making app encryption simple," said Brandon Hancock, manager of AppCrypt project for Cisdem Inc. "AppCrypt was made with one specific goal in mind: create a security solution that would effectively keep prying eyes away from users’ Mac applications while ensuring that users themselves maintain seamless access to it.”

Key Features of AppCrypt for Mac:

  • Password protect Mac apps from unauthorized usage.
  • Keep tracks of failed attempts to access the protected apps.
  • Capture a snapshot of the intruder with the front-facing camera.
  • Create a custom hot key to reveal the AppCrypt window.
  • Does not modify any system or application files.
  • Works as a background process and does not uses any CPU load while idle.
  • Fully supports OS X 10.10 Yosemite.
