Safe is a free software that is used to protect folders, files, and comes with an alarm facility. Thus, like a real safe, this virtual safe is used to keep confidential files and folders, which you can protect with a password of your choice. Moreover, whenever a wrong password is entered, an alarm will start that will let you know that someone tried to access your confidential stuff.
Safe is a bit different than other software to protect folders and files and it comes with a default password ‘1234‘. You can change password and can set your own strong password (only alphabets and numbers). Apart from this, Safe also provides facility to drag n drop files to a safe pending box, so that you can quickly add files to lock with Safe.
Interface of Safe is visible in above screenshot where you can see added files of a folder.

You can keep any kind of files, like music files, images, documents, text files, etc. with Safe. But first of all, you need to download and install it on PC. Its download link is present below in this article. While installing this software, you will be provided free bonus packages which you can install or ignore accordingly. After that, you can run it from desktop shortcut.
The first time you will run this software, you need to unlock its interface with default password ‘1234’.
After unlocking its interface, you can change the code using available button. Now, to protect folders or files, you will find multiple buttons present at top part on its interface. For example, you can use + buttons to add a folder and file to Safe. But while testing, + button to add file showed me some ‘Windows Script Host ‘ error. But folder was added successfully. Moreover, Create Folder button allows you to create a folder in which you can copy paste files and folders to keep them secure.
Apart from this, Add Pending button is also present as highlighted in above screenshot. It is used to add those files and folders that you have added in Safe Pending Box. Safe Pending Box’s shortcut will be available on desktop where you can drag n drop files or folders.
Key Features Present In Safe are:

Safe provides a secure way to protect files and folders. Apart from its main feature, the best part I like is alarm system. If you have speakers with your PC, then alarm facility will help you to catch an unauthorized person red-handed, if he/she will access and enter wrong password.
