What is the Safebox?
Last Updated 8 years ago
Countermail's Safebox is a password manager, a secure place where you can store all your usernames and passwords. All data in the Safebox is protected with one master password. The Safebox does not use any public/private keys, it's using pure OpenPGP symmetrical encryption. This means that the Safebox encryption is separated from your account keys and password, so you can use a different password for the Safebox. As usual, all encryption/decryption is done on your local computer, inside the Java-applet in your web browser. No Safebox-data will leave your computer in unencrypted form.
Warning! If you forget your password your data will be inaccessible! We do not have any "Forgot password" function, since such functions may weaken the "chain" of security.
