Anytime you jailbreak an iOS device, one of the first things you’re ever advised to do is change your handset’s root password, which is commonly used to access elevated privileges in mobile terminal when entering complex commands.

Even if you’re the only user on your Mac, there’s nothing

in your household and have private items that you don’t want anyone to accidentally
With this in mind, you can encrypt and password protect folders
like this on your Mac and here’s how.
