4 Ways To Store Secure Notes On a Mac

If you need to securely store information that is not a password, like a safe or padlock code, pin number, or anything else, you have several options that don't involve third-party apps. You can save the information as a fake password, create a secure note in Keychain, create a locked note, or save an encrypted document.

    Interesting and informative video, Gary. I use Secure Notes in Keychain Access to store bank account details ā€“ passwords, pin and security numbers banks now require. It works OK but it's cumbersome to access and update details, particularly on my iPhone. As for the rest of Keychain Access, which I once used to store passwords (now I just use Safari as you suggest), I find the masses of items in it incomprehensible. Have you done anything on it which explains how it's really supposed to work?

    David: That's how it is supposed to work, yes. Meant really for Mac, not iOS.

    I also lock pdfs for sensitive doc as well as financial spreadsheets in excel - wish there was an easy way to lock a folder?
