Sparsebundle – message at the first start

When you start SimpleumSafe for Mac for the first time, you receive the following message (see photo). Please confirm with “always allow” on the left.

In order for SimpleumSafe to create a fresh “encrypted temporary storage” every time it is started, and to integrate it into the Finder, a random internal password must be stored. This must be allowed once with “always allow” and it will never ask you again.

The app creates exactly one entry in you keychain and only reads this one.

If you have denied the access to the keychain and want to change it now, use the following steps:

  1. Close SimpleumSafe
  2. Start the “Terminal” Program
  3. Enter security delete-generic-password -l worksparse.sparsebundle
    in Terminal and press enter
  4. Start SimpleumSafe again. Now you will be prompted again to allow access to the keychain. Confirm with your Mac system password.
