We store a lot of information on our Mac. In general, we want to protect all of it safely, but there is some element that requires more, requires the highest level of security that we can obtain. This is where keychain secure notes come in, the safest place to keep your notes . Let’s see what they are and how to use them.
The safest place on our Mac
Our Mac stores all our passwords on the keychain. It is a maximum security environment where, in addition, we can also store notes safely . It must be recognized that the ease of access is not the same as if we used a password-protected note , but the extra security will compensate for it on more than one occasion.
Creating a secure note on our Mac keychain is very simple. The steps are the following:
- We open the Keychain Accessapp on our Mac. We can search for it in Spotlight or locate it in the Utilities folder within Applications .
- In the left sidebar we choose the keychain that we want to use, by default the Loginkeychain .
- In the Filemenu we choose New Secure Note .
- We write the name and content.
- We press * Add.
Nothing more. If later we need to consult its content we will follow the first two steps and then we will touch Safe Notes at the top. By doing so, only these will be filtered and we will be able to access them more easily. From here we simply double click on the one that interests us and mark the option See note . After entering the password of our Mac we will see all the content .
