    Hello folks,

    I've read a lot about Keychain but I must be missing something. I want to be able to secure Keychain itself whereby if someone where to get to my Mac while I got up for a second, they wouldn't be able to open Keychain at all without a password. I don't want them to be able to gain access to the program at all without a password. Is that possible?

    You need to enter your login password to unlock a keychain or view a password in Keychain Access.

    Not the issue

    Thank you, but that wasn't my question. If someone clicks on "Keychain", they can see what sites have rules to them even without entering a password. No, they can't change anything, but they can see what sites rules have been created for. Is it possible for me to make it so Keychain itself can not be opened without password protection?

    Don't think you can do that. I might be wrong though, wait and see if anyone else knows anything different.
