Mac App Blocker is exactly what its name implies: a program that helps you prevent other users from accessing your Mac apps. This utility might come in handy for Mac users who share their computers with other people and need to restrict access to some of their installed programs.

Before using this tool on your computer you need to enter a master password. It's important to write a password that's easy to remember as the developers of this program don't provide you with a solution if you forget it.

The application sits on your Menu Bar where you can configure the app by blocking settings according to your needs. You can enter an access password for every app on your Mac, choose from various blocking rules (for example, block app if inactive more than 5 minutes), and combine multiple profiles if necessary.

An important advantage is that the program records all failed attempts to access the blocked apps. This tool lets you know the exact time the unauthorized users tried to launch one of your blocked utilities.

In conclusion, Mac App Blocker is a simple and efficient program. You should definitely give it a try if you're looking for an effective way to block unauthorized users from accessing your apps.
