Encrypting my files on macOS

There is a few ways to encrypt your files with NordLocker:

  • Adding files/folders to an existing locker:
  1. Open and log in to the NordLocker application.
  2. Press the + (Add) button.
  3. Navigate to the directory where the file/folder resides and choose what you wish to encrypt.



  • Dragging files/folders to a locker:
  1. Open and log in to the NordLocker application.
  2. Select files or folders on your macOS.
  3. Simply drag them into the NordLocker application window.


*In the process, you may be asked if you want to copy the file/folder or move it to a locker.

If you choose to copy - the original file/folder will stay unencrypted on your device and only a duplicate of it will be encrypted with NordLocker.

If you select to move the file/folder to a locker, then the original file will be encrypted and will not remain in its original location.

  • Convert files/folders to a locker:
  1. Right-click on the files/folders you wish to encrypt.
  2. Select Convert to Locker.
  3. A new locker will be created.


That's it, you have encrypted your files! Now you are the only one who can access it by entering your master password.
