I have a text edit document that has all of my user names and passwords for paypal, ebay, and other things that I don't want people to know. How do I keep that hidden or protected?

It might be a pain to move the information, but I recommend Keychain Access. It's a great program, provided free by Apple with OS X, for keeping all of your passwords and codes. Take a look at it and let me know what you think.

What you do is copy the text and paste it into a post into this forum and then delete the original!

 

Jokes aside, have you tried ajusting the permissions or locking the file?

is there anything that will require a password to open the file? That's what I really need.

The safest way would be to enable FileVault but I have heard of people having problems after enabling it.

Check out MindFortress. It is not free, but at only $9.95 to register, it is a great little application. The beauty of it is that you can take that text file, cut and paste the information right into MindFortress and you are set.
