I am very disappointed in this software.,
This review is from: Steganos Safe 2008 (PC) (CD-ROM)
I have used Steganos Safe 5 for several years and was delighted with it. But now I have bought Safe 2008 from Amazon.Co.UK and am very disappointed with it.
The main reason I bought it was because the newer version had much larger storage capacity. Amazon sold it for £22.99 which is a very good price.
BUT it needs a complicated certificate downloaded from the Internet to use it. No mention of this in the advert or on the box.
I wanted it to use on my 'old' computer, that I was letting the family use. I did not want them to be able to see my old files. That is what it is for obviously. But this 'old' computer is not on the Internet. So I cannot get a certificate, and it therefore cannot be used. Massively disappointing.
If you want to be able to use this software you have to be on the Internet, and go through the aggro of downloading it.......with firewall, anti-virus problems etc.
None of this was necessary with Steganos 5!
Also, if the company does not give a certificate (for any technical reasons; or because the company has stopped trading for example) you have a piece of software that can never be used.
In addition to this, their so-called 'support' does not appear to reply to emails; and since this is part of what I paid for.......again.......very disappointing.
Finally, it appears that all the contents of the Safe can be lost. If the product is 'uninstalled' (assuming you have been lucky enough to ever get it installed in the first place) all the documents will be lost.
So it is NOT a safe Safe.......it is a very vulnerable unsafe so-called Safe.
Very Very Disappointing.
