SecureWords can secure your articles and text entries

By Aaron Lee

We have encrypted storages for our passwords. We encrypt our emails, our chats, and our journals. If you need a secure word processing app for articles and text entries, there’s SecureWords.

It's a tool that automatically encrypts and decrypts text documents so we can, among other things, store them on iCloud or in Dropbox without having to worry. SecureWords is a lean, versatile machine that can handle RTF, OpenOffice, and Word documents.

You use it like you would any word processor. However, the items you pen will sport built-in password protection and 256-bit encryption. You can also export your SecureWords documents into a format such as Word or Markdown. 

SecureWords supports attachments like images. However, since they will be encrypted as well, you can’t just drag ’n drop ‘em. You mustuse the menu command.

You should also note that the OS X Autosave feature is disabled for security purposes. SecureWorks does come with its own autosave feature, which is enabled by default.

You can obtain SecureWords on the Mac App Store. It costs US$11.99 and requires Mac OS X 10.6.8 or later.
