Step 3: Under Save As filed name your encrypted folder as you wish.

Step 4: Below that, under Size choose the size for your encrypted folder. Let me note that 500MB should be more than enough space to keep your important and files inside it.

Step 5: Under Encryption choose your desired encryption. 128-bit is more than secure for most of the users, however if you looking for more secure but slower encryption, choose 256-bit.

Step 6: Once you are done with all setups click on Create button.

Step 7: A pop-up window will show up asking you to add a password for your encrypted folder. Type it in two times and then click OK.

Step 9: Once done, right mouse click on it and from context menu choose Eject “Disk Image”.
