MacFileSafeguard Editor's Review

It is quite well known that Apple Mac OS is less targeted by hackers and creators of malware compared to Windows OS versions. However, that does not mean you do not need to deploy measures to ensure your data on a Macbook or iMac stays safe from prying eyes! To safeguard your important documents and data on a Mac, you need to use suitable third party apps. One such example is MacFileSafeguard. As evident from its name, the app is meant for protecting your data on a Mac from unauthorized access. It offers password-protection for folders as well.

MacFileSafeguard has a small footprint and installation gets over in a jiffy. The installation will lead to a system reboot. It supports Macs with OS X 10.7 and subsequent editions.

The app has a minimalistic and simple UI. The menu bar panel lets you deactivate or activate the app’s security layer. In the editor, you can decide which folders will be safeguarded by it. You can set actions like read, write or delete for folders. The app shows protected folders in a list including folder path. At any time, users can alter permission options. The editor has 4 options stacked horizontally on top- New, Edit, Save and Delete. There are help, preferences and a search box too.

The locked folders and files remain visible to other users, but they cannot change the contents. The sub folders inside a locked folder are also safeguarded, as expected. The preferences window is the place where you can change passwords. Since MacFileSafeguard does not change or encrypt files, it does not have an impact on system performance. Your data will be safe and intact.

Positive Points:
•    Minimal, clean UI.
•    Low learning curve.
•    Comprehensive folder access control.

Negative Points:
•    Nothing in particular.

MacFileSafeguard is an affordable and nifty utility ideal for Mac users serious about privacy of data. The app is easy to use and offers password protection for safeguarding important data. The folder access and modification options can be changed at will. It does not take a toll on system performance and considering everything, there is no reason not to try it.

Rating: 3/5
