Cisdem, an innovative Mac applications developer, has announced the recent release of AppCrypt for Mac (http://tinyurl.com/nmg6vqa), an app that gives users the ability to password protect their apps.
It can password protect iPhoto, iTunes, Contacts, Facebook or any other applications on your Mac. To use you set a password and add the apps to the lock list. No one can access the protected apps unless they have the correct password. According to Brandon Hancock, manager of the AppCrypt project for Cisdem, key features include:
° 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 Mac OS X Yosemite.
AppCrypt is available now through the Cisdem website. A single license of AppCrypt costs US$24.99. A license for two Macs costs $39.99 and one for five is $59.99. A demo is available for download.
