Posted in Cisdem Announcements 0

Cisdem AppCrypt for Mac has been updated to version 5.2.0. The update fixes a password setting issue and some minor bugs.

Cisdem AppCrypt is a website blocker and app locker for Mac. It can block access to specific websites/webpages with password and password lock apps. AppCrypt can help users block distracting websites so as to improve productivity. Parents can also use it to block inappropriate content online and limit children’s screen time.

“AppCrypt is a versatile tool,” said Edward Riley, Cisdem’s project manager. “Regardless of what you use the tool for, you need to set a password. The password is needed when you try to access AppCrypt settings. Also, one won’t be able to access the blocked websites and locked apps without knowing the password. The 5.2.0 update fixes an issue where the password settings box didn’t show up upon first launch of AppCrypt. The update also fixes some minor bugs to improve the tool’s performance.”

Main features of Cisdem AppCrypt for Mac

Block websites and webpages

As a website blocker, AppCrypt can block access to specific websites and webpages on Google Chrome and Safari. Also, its Allowlist mode allows users to block all websites except a few that have been added to the Allowlist. Users can use it to block distracting, inappropriate or other unwanted online content. 

Lock apps on Mac

Also as an app locker, AppCrypt can lock apps on Mac with password. If someone tries to open a locked app and enters a wrong password, AppCrypt will record the failed attempt with date and time and take a picture of the intruder. It can be used to shield important apps from prying eyes.

Provide a useful Schedule feature

Its Schedule feature lets users block websites/webpages and lock apps at certain times. In Schedule settings, users can create one or multiple schedules for a specific website/webpage or an app. This feature can help limit time spent on websites and apps.
