SecretBox is a very nice data encryption tool for the Mac. It allows you to create a database of web logins, bank accounts, credit card information, and software licenses that is protected by AES-256 encryption. There are versions of this app for iPhones and iPads/iPods that allow you to sync the information on your Mac and take it anywhere.
As I mentioned above, a strong encryption is used to protect your data. And SecretBox claims that they are very careful with how the application decrypts data. As they say, SecretBox will only decrypt the item that you are currently looking at; unlike other apps that decrypt the whole database to give you access to one item.
SecretBox has a nice password assistant that tells you how secure your passwords are and it even allows you to generate secure passwords.
Once you create a database, you can start adding logins, credit card info, licenses, etc. I found that the application was incredibly intuitive and I liked the design a lot.
One feature that I particularly liked is the quick access window, which you can call using a hotkey. It basically brings up a window that you can place anywhere on your screen with one of your saved documents. So, you can use it to copy your credit card information when needed.
