prMac Releases > iLocker locks apps with a password and provides smart data protection

Miami, Florida - ProtectStar today is proud to announce the release and immediate availability of iLocker for Mac 1.0, their new app and file security utility for macOS. Users of shared Macs can password protect their personal apps by simply dragging and dropping them into the iLocker app window. With a quick entry of a password, the objects are protected from unauthorized access by other users.

iLocker is the perfect solution for parents who share their Mac with younger family members and worry their kids might access things they shouldn't. With a simple drag-and-drop and password entry, apps like Apple Mail, Photos, Contacts, Safari, and even games can be prevented from opening without a password. This helps keep kids safe and their mind on homework while using the family Mac.

"In many families, everyone shares the same computer, making it harder to keep your kids away from files, folders, and apps they shouldn't be accessing. iLocker for Mac takes care of all that with just a few clicks of a mouse and taps of a keyboard," says Chris Bohn, CEO of ProtectStar. "Parents can even set time limits and schedule access to apps and files to make sure their offspring are doing their homework, instead of trying to beat the next level of their favorite game!"

iLocker also tracks failed access attempts of protected items, so you'll know exactly when the unauthorized access occurred. In addition, it makes use of the latest MacBook Pro feature, Touch ID. By using their authorized fingerprint, users can unlock their apps and files in an instant.

iLocker for Mac also offers smart ransomware protection via ProtectStar's intelligent Deep Detective(TM) feature. The exclusive feature constantly monitors and protects critical system areas and personal data with an additional layer of prevention against Mac-encrypting ransomware attacks like KeRanger and other malicious methods. Deep Detective observes all accesses to your macOS apps, folders, and files, reporting known, and thanks to modern heuristic methods, unknown hacker attack attempts.

The app is also perfect for office situations where more than one user accesses the same Mac, or when users are called away from their Mac in an office setting. An automatic-exit feature locks protected apps after a specific period of time away from the keyboard, increasing security.
