I'm new to Mac and would be interested in using Keychain to store sensitive info in Secure Notes. The problem I have is that it appears to be all too easy to delete a Secure Note (and passwords etc) held in a keychain. Right click on the item and select delete - and it's gone. No password, or other security measure prevents this from happening. As such, a malicious person able to access your computer can wipe out all the information you hold in a very few minutes. Am I missing something?
