    Is there anyway to make a "Stack" require a password to see its contents?

    Just thought it might be a good idea and potentially be useful

    Consider why you would want a password protected folder in your dock anyway? It's purpose is for convenient, one click away look at the contents inside a folder. Putting a password completely defeats the purpose of this easy access.

    A stack is just a folder. There is nothing special about it apart from the fact you have a shortcut to it in the Dock. You can't password protect a folder so the same is true of a stack.

    I'm sure there are password utilities...

    but for sensitive data, I just create an image with 256bit-AES built into it...

    If thieves steal my macbook pro, at least they won't see my important documents and work data :)
