steganos.com We @ Tweakbytes.com are very pleased to announce our Steganos Privacy Suite 18 + Steganos Online Shield VPN Giveaway [10 Licenses] Giveaway! We would like to thank Steganos GmbH and BOHMerang PR for sponsoring us the giveaway license prizes. Overview Steganos Privacy Suite 18 (SPS18) is a collection of tools designed for a specific purpose --to keep data you deem as "sensitive/confidential" safe from unauthorized access and exposure. The individual user will have the capability to encrypt/hide his data alongside cleaning traceable items from your browsers and system applications and permanent deletion/elimination of files/folders. It is the combination of Steganos Safe and Steganos Password Manager with extra bonus features aimed at giving only the best protection for the users privacy/safety. Steganos Privacy Suite 18 COMPONENTS The main interface of SPS18 shows its main components which are: 1. Safe 2. Portable Safe 3. Crypt & Hide 4. Password Manager 5. Private Favorites 6. E-Mail Encryption 7. Shredder 8. TraceDestructor 9. Privacy 1. STEGANOS SAFE Steganos Safe is the secure drive that you will create to store your sensitive data. It is used like any other drive in your system. You can either save, edit or delete files inside the safe you create. It is easy to setup/create a stationary Safe, hide an existing safe (Hidden Safe) etc. Each one of the Safe's that you will create is a virtual Safe that functions like an additional hard disk in your computer with a difference that your data is securely stored inside it. Ease of access is given via the Windows Explorer when you open an encrypted Safe. It automatically gets added into Windows Explorer for you to access it just like any other drive you have. The main window of the Safe displays a list of secure drives you have created and you can opne/close as desired with just a click of a button. Passwords to access your created Safe's can also be accessed via the use of the Password Manager whcih when set to automatically supply password will do just that and "autofill" in the necessary passowrd for your Safe. Safes can also be set to "dynamically grow" with it's contents or just stay stationary within the size you desire. All Safes in Steganos Safe can be backed-up and imported to/from external drives. 2. PORTABLE SAFE Allows you to create a "Portable Safe" either from an flash drive, an external drive or a DVD disc. In a Portable Safe you can transport your secure data safely anywhere. Anything that is portable are accommodated. One thing to note is that the maximum size for creating a portable safe in FAT32 is 3.99GB. To accommodate a bigger capacity the drive should be in NTFS file system. Best bet if you need a portable safe larger than 4GB is to use an "external drive" whcih are by default in NTFS file system. All files are secure in your Portable Safe and if ever you lose your portable device, say, flash drive/usb stick, unauthorized access is blocked because of its encryption. One thing to be noted is that the Portable Safe cannot be launched in Windows NT 4.0 or Windows 95/98. 3. CRYPT & HIDE Allows the user to encrypt/decrypt and hide sensitive documents you have and keep them safe from prying eyes. It allows you to create encrypted archives for safe storage of documents, files etc. Encrypted archives can also be shared via cloud storage (Dropbox, Google Drive or Microsoft OneDrive). A secure archive can also be hidden inside an audio or image file. Please note that the carrier file or the file that you will use to hide the archive will be at least 20x larger than the secure archive. Supported files types are; . JPG, BMP and .WAV files. 4. PASSWORD MANAGER Steganos Password Manager helps you manage all your online passwords, PINs, and other confidential/sensitive data s well as generate secure passwords for you and provides help to enter them automatically when needed. Passwords are managed and created in trees and tabs for "Passwords", Bank accounts", and "Credit cards". Steganos Password Manager lets you create a "keychain" which I see as a group or a list of password entries for every password that you have. I see it as a way to organize your password from all that you use for any specific need you have. When you create a keychain it will only show the name of the keychain and depending on your usage you can further add sub-categories, assign icons and create more entries. 5. PRIVATE FAVORITES Steganos Privacy Suite 18 allows you to store favorites/bookmarks that you deem "personal" or "private" and encrypts them. It is part of the 4th tab of Password Manager. 6. E-MAIL ENCRYPTION Feature is only available in 32bit systems so I was not able to try this one out. Email encryption are used to move emails, contacts, tasks and calendar files from Outlook (or from other supported email programs as applicable) to a Safe where they can be used as normally as possible but with protection of encryption. Only one (1) Safe can be used for mailbox encryption. 7. SHREDDER Steganos Shredder effectively erases data (files/folders) permanently from your hard drive. SPS18 Shredder can also deep erase/deep clean "free-space" on your hard drive too as well as erase data on external devices such as flash drives/USB sticks, external hard disks via it's Device Shredder feature. Note that when you use the "Shredder" files cannot be recovered. They will be permanently erased. 8. Steganos TRACE DESTRUCTOR Steganos TraceDestructor allows you to remove all traces of information after you have surfed the internet thus those trace build-up that are accumulated when you use the internet (or just use your computer locally) are effectively destroyed. The "One Click Destruction" icon on your desktop allows you to automatically erase all highlighted traces without you having to open SPS18 main interface. You also can automatically destroy all traces after exiting your browser by selecting "Trace destruction". Exceptions can also be made for cookies you want to keep via the "Define Cookie-Exceptions". 9. PRIVACY Allows you to set privacy settings so you are guarded properly/securely. The settings are via toggle switch so you can either "turn-on" or "turn-off": (a) Webcam protection --deactivates your Webcam so others cannot "activate" it without your knowledge, (b) Block Ads --blocks ads/banners paving the way for your websites to load faster, (c) Prevent Tracking --safeguards your surfing habits and disables Facebook and Twitter buttons, widgets, etc, and (d) Anonymize browser type --replaces info about your browser, OS and config so thru it makes it harder to identify your identity online.
