    Also just be aware that the Privacy feature that blocks ads and prevents tracking would stop cashback sites from being usable while turned on.

    Is encrypted storage like prevent ransomware?

    • +13 votes

      No it's more to prevent other people from seeing your files or the unlikely chance that your computer is compromised. The safe creates an encrypted file on your PC which means ransomware could still encrypt it. You'd be much safer using the portable safe and having it stored on external media that isn't constantly plugged in.

      For actual free protection against ransomware I recommend using RansomFree (alongside a decent AV). It creates dummy bait files and places them in places that ransomware normally encrypts first. Once it detects ransomware it kills the offending process and alerts you. Operating in the same fashion as premium solutions. I've tested it against new September Dharma variants and it has worked every time.

        you mean ransomware "decrypts" or "encrypts" it?

          Encrypts it. The safe is just one big massive file stored on the drive. Ransomware itself can still encrypt it.

          @0031nek: Think of it as a box. If there is no lock on the box anyone can open it up and see what's inside. If you put a lock (Steganos) on the box then people can't see inside without a key. If that box isn't protected then someone could go add their own lock (Ransomware) to the box and you can't get in.

          So the ideal way to protect your files is to have offsite backups (e.g. Google Drive/USB HDDs) and a good antivirus product.

      Sorry I should have said you could untick that. My follow up email took about 10 minutes to arrive. Definitely not in the spam?

    Wouldn't let me get a 'seriennummer' because my e-mail (alias) has the word 'spammer' in it. I set up a Steganos account with that same address without any problem…

    Is this any better than the built-in windows hard drive encryption feature?

    "The serial number you entered is incorrect. Please try again"

    It's exactly what they emailed me. Gypped!
