We store a lot of information on our Mac. In general, we want to keep everything safe, but there is one element that requires more, requires the highest level of security we can get. This is where the secure notes of the keychain come in, the safest place to keep our annotations. Let’s see what they are and how to use them.
The safest place on our Mac
Our Mac stores all of our passwords on the keychain. It is a maximum security environment where, in addition, we can store notes safely. It must be recognized that the ease of access is not the same as if we were to use a password protected note, but the added security will make up for it on more than one occasion.
Create a secure note on our Mac’s keychain is the easiest. The steps are as follows:
- We open the app Access to the keychain
- In the left sidebar we choose the keychain we want to use, by default the keychain login.
- On the menu Archive we choose New security note.
- We write the name and the 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 Secure Notes
Nothing else, in reality it is a very simple, but little known process which, in more than one circumstance, can be really useful. A place to store our information in the safest way possible.
