Safe 1.4

A handy application that will make sure your data is stored safely and encrypted so it is protected against unauthorized access attempts
The protection of sensitive data is nowadays of the utmost importance for all users and the numerous applications developed for such purposes stand as proof.

From simple password encryption to virtual safeboxes, developers tries to cover all the angles and offer a good deal of choices so that each user can opt for the software solution that best suits their needs.

Thus, those looking for a utility that combines several of these methods of keeping sensitive information private can put to the test the one going by the name of Safe.

Simple installation and quick system tray access

Setting up this program is not at all a difficult task, but be advised that when the procedure ends, a system restart is mandatory in order to be able to use the app. As soon as the installer is deployed you will be prompted about some changes that this app needs to make to your system in order to ensure the privacy of the protected data.

If you need more details about what it actually does, it's worth noting that if you allow for the changes to be made, Safe will disable hibernation while activating pagefile/swap encryption and, most importantly, installing a RAM disk for Web Distributed Authoring and Versioning (WebDAV) cache.

The utility will reside in the system tray at all times and by right-clicking its icon you will be able to access the main menu and use the commands for creating and managing the safe areas.

Encrypt each file with virtually unbreakable ciphers

The strong point of Safe is the ease of use which makes it suitable even for beginners. Creating a new safe is a breeze because all you have to do is choose its location and the password to access it.

The level of encryption used by this tool is impressive and it applies to every file you place in that vault so the data is ciphered with AES-256, which makes it pretty much impervious to any attempt of decoding it.

Top-level security for personal data

On the whole, Safe is definitely an application that is worth having and thanks to the powerful encryption it provides, you can feel confident all your files are well protected and no one but the person who has the password can decrypt them.
