    "I love that you can use AppleScript, and that it's compatible with third-party tools. AES-256 encryption included, plus a passwords manager means it's both secure and easy to use at the same time. You can easily remove Macsspecific files too, if you're looking for Windows compatible files. I feel like the possible was achieved with BetterZip"
