iLocker is a smart app locker for Mac applications, which helps users lock apps as per their convenience. This app is made while keeping in mind the possible privacy invasion of people who share their mac devices with their partner, children, or those who simply want certain apps protected just if they have to give their Mac access to someone else. With tonnes of features like Deep Detective, scheduler Ransomware protection, and the user's flexibility, iLocker certainly stands apart from other app lockers as the clear winner in this space.

With iLocker for Mac, all your apps are password-protected, and only you or someone with whom you decide to share the password can access the apps and not anyone else. This comes handy to those who actively let others use their Mac devices and have some critical information stored. With iLocker, you can sit back and relax!

2. Password!

You pick which apps will be protected, and iLocker™ Mac keeps them secure. It tracks failed attempts to access the protected apps - so you'll know when it happened with date and time. The automatic exit feature locks the app after a time when you're away from the keyboard to improve security.
