You can easily protect archives created in the terminal in macOS. If you want to create a zip file of the folder
archiveMe you can run the command
zip -er Archive.zip archiveMe
where the option
e tells the command to encrypt the zip file, and
r tells the command to recurse into directories.
The command will wait for you to input the password (twice) before creating the archive.
