    How do I put a password onto a file to prevent others from viewing it (want to store credit card and other sensative details like bank statements)

    Use Keychain Access. Go to File > New Secure Note Item, and enter the details.

    Go into your Applications folder, then into Utilities, and open Keychain Access. It should be pretty straightforward from there.
