Steganos Safe is an intuitive piece of kit that you can use to create safes on your computer, in order to protect sensitive data from pry eyes. It particularly comes in handy if you share the machine with other people.

Intuitive interface makes it easy to use

A safe is a virtual drive that you can access just like any other volume on your computer, with the difference being that it can be password-protected as well as made invisible when not in use.

The main application window has a modern appearance and a clean layout. You can create a new regular safe to encrypt data on the current computer only, portable one for use on external hard disks or pen drives (for use on multiple machines), or a Dropbox safe. The last option allows you to encrypt data in your Dropbox account, as the name implies, as long as you have the respective tool installed.

Multiple ways to create and manage safes

Apart from specifying a safe name, you can allocate its size (in MB) and set up a password with or without storing it on a key device. From this point on, you can open a hidden safe from Steganos Safe's primary panel, which basically means making the virtual drive visible in your default file manager. It is possible to hide a safe within an audio or video file too, to add an extra level of security.

Various tools to work with

A wide array of configuration settings is available through the context menu of a selected safe in the main frame. For example, you can highlight or delete it, change the drive letter and password, mount a safe as a local or removable drive, move the SLE file to another location (contains the safe contents), trigger applications to run after opening or closing the safe, modify allocated size, as well as point out a global hotkey for opening or closing the safe.

Clever use of system resources

Steganos Safe uses moderate RAM and low CPU, has a good response time and works smoothly. We have not come across any issues throughout our evaluation, since the tool did not hang, crash or show error messages.

On an ending note

All in all, there are many applications dedicated to creating virtual safes (vaults, crypts etc.). However, Steganos Safe is probably one of the most easy-to-use ones, backed up by a well-organized interface and intuitive options, which make it ideal for all types of users, regardless of their level of experience.
