outta my mind
Need your opinion guys. I need to lock my sensitive files. Here are the 2 main ones I've tried so far:
Quick comparison
Folder lock
  • Larger user base
  • Many say it's more stable
  • Well tested
  • Support for iPhone

  • Reaaaally user friendly and a breeze
  • More features
  • Crossplatform
  • Nicer interface (subject to your taste)
  • Nice notifications
  • (Bonus) I make a lil money off its inbuilt referral system
Now old is gold(Folder lock) but I kinda seem to like Titanlock more. I don't know. Your opinions on both?
PS: Kindly, only post if you've tested both of them.

I concur. Do not use some proprietary program (which may not be around in a few years when you need to access old files, and may have unknown security issues). Either use OS X's built-in methods (very easy: create an encrypted DMG using "image from folder" in Disk Utility), or an open-source encryption solution such as Veracrypt with container files.

Use Disk Utility to create encrypted images or go for the TrueCrypt if you do not hide something that feds don't need to see. Much much reliable....
