Keep Your Secrets Save

Mac OS X comes with built-in encryption utility. You can use it to encrypt any file by creating a new virtual encrypted disk.

Here's a step-by-step guide:

1. Open "Disk Utility" (Applications > Utilities).

2. Click "New Image".

3. Enter the name of a disk, for example, "Encrypted disk", select disk size (for example 40 MB, if that’s enough for your files), select AES-128 (recommended) encryption, and click "Create".

4. You’ll be asked to enter password. Do it. (Deselect Remember password for more security.)

Now you can double-click this disk image to mount it and view and edit files inside it.
