Safe 3.32 Free Download


Rating: 4.5 - ‎Free - ‎ Safe is now an open source project. As of September 24, 2013, the latest version is 3.32. A Linux version is currently in beta.
Various third-party ports, clones, and rders are also available. I haven't looked at any of these programs, and can't vouch for their compatibility or their security.
Many computer users today have to keep track of dozens of s: for network accounts, online services, premium web sites. Some write their s on a piece of paper, lving their accounts vulnerable to thieves or in-house snoops. Others choose the same for different appliions, which makes life sy for intruders of all kinds. With Safe, a free utility designed by Bruce Schneier, users can keep their s securely encrypted on their computers. A single Safe Combination--just one thing to remember--unlocks them all.
Safe protects s with the Twofish encryption aorithm, a fast, free alternative to DES. The program's security has been thoroughly verified by Counterpane Labs under the supervision of Bruce Schneier, author of Applied Cryptography and crtor of the Twofish aorithm.
Safe ftures a simple, intuitive interface that lets users set up their database in minutes. You can copy a just by double-clicking, and paste it directly into your appliion. Best of all, Safe is completely free: no requirements, shareware fees, or other strings attached.

Safe is a strong contender in a large field of similar appliions. The irritation of its obtuse interface is lessened by the inclusion of a thorough Help file and a hlthy stable of ftures.
The arrangement of the icons on the toolbars and lack of text under the icons mnt having to hunt for the right tools. However, after wading through the interface, the various functions all seemed well conceived and well executed. The capability to install in "portable mode" proved to be an extremely useful fture. crtion is also another strong point, with the capability to tailor the crtion fture. When adding a new entry, the "strength" check could be more aggressive, instd of waiting until final submission of the entry, but at lst the program let users continue even if the they've entered is deemed "wk." The inclusion of a KeePass database import function is a plus for users of that software, and though there is no KeePass export, there are various other import and export formats available.
During use, the program was responsive and did not crash, and all the ftures we tested performed as expected. The installer (in desktop mode) placed an icon on the desktop without asking, and uninstalling the program left some items behind in the install directory. Database encryption and the portable-mode installation option make this a fine choice for managing all your various s.
