What’s the price of security these days? Paranoia. Every month we hear of new Mac malware. If you’re connected to the internet, there’s someone out there trying to get into your Mac.
What about those who already have access to your Mac? Whether home or office, your Mac sitting on a desk is fair game for anyone walking by while you’re not there.
Mac App Blocker is an elegant, inexpensive Mac app that password protects every app on your Mac. If you have the password, you can use the app. No password? No app.
There’s a handy, built-in timeout feature in Mac App Blocker. If you leave your Mac unattended, the timeout automatically exits the open app so no one else can drop in and use it.
You select the apps to block. Mac App Blocker tracks failed attempts to use an app and captures the date, time, and a photo of whoever tried to use your Mac’s apps without permission (needs a Mac with a camera, of course).
You can also set your Mac’s System Preferences to require a password so no one else can muck with your preferences.
Think about what could happen while you’re away from your Mac (at home, in the office, or at school). Anyone nearby can rummage through your Mac while you’ve stepped away.
Mac App Blocker makes it difficult for anyone without the password to use the apps on your Mac. And, if they try, you get a photo each person and a time date stamp.
Add a password login to your Mac’s screen saver and you have an extra layer of security to prevent (or, at least slow down) someone from using the apps on your Mac.
