Ever wonder why you can’t easily password protect a zip file on a Mac? So did we. Zippersnapper is the easiest way to zip your files with password protection, right from the Mac menu bar.


Easily drag individual files, or an entire folder of files and zip files with a password instantly. No fluffy stuff, just the absolute easiest way to zip files - securely protected with a password.


ZipperSnapper fills a need for creatives, freelancers, and others who need basic security for files, but need them to be openable by anyone they send them to. So you can send your Zip files to Windows users, too. Or post them to apps like Basecamp with abandon, confident that only the people on the project that you want to see your work-in-progress versions have access.


Please note: In order to make our Zip files compatible to Windows, we use the most standard Zip password protection. On some Windows unzipping apps, this means file and folder names are visible -- but, no matter what your recipient is using (Windows, Mac, you name it) the files within are utterly unopenable without the password.


Release Notes:

Yosemite bug fixes and more readable text.

finally a solution that looks amazing - Great solution to a common problem among many Mac users… how do I protect the archive without touching the terminal. Well here is the answer! Zippersnapper. Works great! Support is super easy to talk to and is responsive. Kudos! One comment on improvement from me would be to include an option to run it in the dock instead of the menubar. Don't get me wrong I love the menubar option, but sometimes I don't need to have an icon there for something I'm not using at the moment.

Doesn't work at all, ever. The software does nothing at all. - I have not been able to successfully zip even one file with this software. It simply does not work at all, ever. Dragging files to the main window does nothing. The software simply does not do anything at all that I can see. AVOID LIKE THE PLAGUE.
