Basic mac security app.....suggestions please

I should know this by now having owned Apple stuff for 15 years...

Is there a easy to use app that would allow me to lockout certain programs (PTools...) to un authorized users, and/or the whole coputer system?

There's a little bit on "keychains" that talks about linking multiple passwords/apps....I don't recall a security setting in PTools

We're on a G4 dp867 with system 9.2.2 (for the next 6 months then OSX)


thanks

how about user login .... that exists allready on OS9 right ??? never tried it but I'm pretty sure within the OS there's ways of of protecting certain sections and keep others available for public use.

There's a bit of shareware called Secret Folder... you drop all your sensitive apps/files etc into a "hidden" folder which is unhidden with a password. If you include this in your startup items you'll be asked to do this when booting up. You only get to use one folder/password per machine. Works a treat!

embarassingly simple. Just enable "multiple users" and have at it.
there are different levels of acces allowed, via password protection.

You can lock out certain Apps.

The "owner" setting allows complete access to the comp, installing software and such.

the next level would allow you to define what apps are available to others, and so on....
just arm multiple users and set up your passwords.
