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.

What's New in Version 1.3

New for 1.3!


Name your Zips whatever you like. Save them wherever you want. Just drag your files, then click the "..." button to make that save customized.


Do or don't open a Finder window to show your freshly zipped files. Just click the Z menu, then go to Preferences. You'll see a shiny new checkbox for "Open Finder window after Zip".

Thanks as always!

Finally found a solution to create pass protected zip files

Spent waaay too much time trying to find a solution on how to create password protected zip files in OSX.

This app works exactly as described and has a great looking UI. Reasonable price considering there’s lots of other, more expensive apps that don’t seem to even work.

Thanks to the devs! Awesome app!

Great little app

This app has come in handy many times when I want to safely email sensitive documents. Just drag your files over, create and confirm youy password, and that’s it! Worth a couple bucks, for sure.

Nice but...

Very nice app, great solution to a need that should already be included in the OS. Note: the app generates random passwords. You do not have the option to create your own.
