Purpose of the ModuleThe purpose of this module is as follows:
- Introduce you to the how-to of installing AESCrypt on your Macintosh computer so that you can encrypt confidential data.

Step by Step: Get a copy of AESCrypt for Macintosh and save it on your computer.
a) Click this link and save a copy of the zipped (compressed) installation file. Don't worry about the zip file format since your Mac will know what to do with it once you save it.
b) Double-click the saved installation file, named AESCrypt_v308a_x86.pkg.zip.
c) Look for the AESCrypt file you have just saved to your Desktop or Download folder, then double-click on it. It will look like the one shown below.
When you uncompress it (a.k.a. unzip), you will have the AESCrypt_x86.pkg file. Double-click to begin installation.
Begin and finish the installation program, clicking CONTINUE when appropriate.
When the process is complete--and you will only have to complete this step once per computer--you are ready to begin encrypting content.
