Hello eddielove,


It sounds like you need help password protecting your personal files on your MacOS. I don’t blame you for seeking a solution - it’s important to have your device running the way you want. You’re in the right place to find a resolution.


Here is a resource that can help:

Encrypt the contents of your Mac with FileVault

Let me know if this helps.
Take care.

You can use Disk Utilities File>New Image>Image from Folder… Then select a folder with the documents you want to protect. Choose the type of encryption and select read/write and type and confirm a password for it.


Create a secure disk image


Regards.
