Any programs available to store sensitive data?

I would like to store some sensitive data on my mac such as online banking usernames/passwords, frequent flyer mileage numbers, passport number, etc.

Is there a program available that is made to do this? I currently store these items in Address Book, which isn't very secure. If somebody knew where to look they'd have access to all this information.

What do other people use?

Data Keeper is free and very highly recommended.

I try to Command+Shift+/ when I can.

Thanks for the tip. It seems that program would do the trick, but the link to the program from the URL doesn't work. I'm currently located in China, so I don't know if it's blocked or if the file is just no longer available.

Maybe it doesn't work for me because of China's "Great Firewall". When I click on the link, it redirects to http://www.synack.com/dkeeper-1.05.tgz
Then I see the error message "Bad Request (Invalid Hostname)"

Well, sorry about that, maybe just try searching for it on Google? Maybe it's something about the links coming from an American server...

You could always use "Keychain Access" which is built into OS X. Go to File:New secure note.

Or,

Open Disk Utility
Click "New Image"
Make it however big you want and turn encryption on

This creates a disk image on your desktop where you can drag files. When you eject the image, it is password protected.

I also get the bad request page when trying to download the program. I also live in the states, so I don't think it has anything to do with the fact that you are in china.
