🚀 TipOff #20: Password Protect a Folder on a Mac

Of course you protect your Mac with a password, but you can take your security a little further by password protecting individual folders.

  • Open Applications → Utilities → Disk Utility
  • Select File → New Image → Image from Folder
  • Select the folder you want to protect, choose to encrypt, and give it a password
  • Delete the original folder

Now going forward you’ll need to enter the password when opening the new “folder.”
