Use Keychain Access for Protection

Keychain Access provides a secure place to store information that can only be accessed with a user name and password. Keychain automatically and safely stores the passwords you create on your Mac, like those for web sites you go to, servers you connect to, email accounts, etc.

You can also add your own secure collections of Keychains to store your credit card numbers, PINs, bank card information, private notes or messages, and other things that you want easy access to, but you want them to be secure. They won't be entered automatically anywhere—it's just a safer place to store them than on a sticky note.
