SimpleumSafe Features

Keep it simple: An intuitive operation

We want everyone to be able to encrypt and archive their personal or professional data. For this reason, operation has been kept as simple as possible. You don’t need any technical knowledge to quickly familiarize yourself with how the SimpleumSafe works.

In SimpleumSafe, you can apply much of what you’ve learned from daily use of the Mac, iPhone, or iPad. You will find your way around immediately.

Easily work with encrypted files (iOS)

You can preview the files. The file remains encrypted.

In addition to the tag function, you can also add comments to files. Just select the file and you can see all the file information. You can hide this information to get the maximum space for the preview. If it is a document such as a PDF, you can also scroll through the document here.

Full Screen Image viewer and slide show (iOS)

The normal file list in the icon view is already well suited to get an overview of your images.

In SimpleumSafe, you can view your photos in full-screen mode using either the image viewer or the slideshow.

Your images stay encrypted at all times.

In the picture viewer, you can swipe to change the pictures. Tap once on the screen and the control elements will appear as shown in the right image. If you tap the screen right there, you can simply scroll through the images with either your left or right hand. The controls don’t need to be visible for this action.

You can start an automatic slide show or switch between the images using the mouse or keyboard. You can also zoom in and out on the images.

High Security Sync

SimpleumSafe enables the synchronization of Safes between different devices (Mac, iPad, iPhone). There are three sync types: iCloud, wireless (no internet) or to a shared folder (Mac to Mac only).

SimpleumSafe is all about security, that’s why we developed “High Security Sync”.

Even if the synchronization data is stolen from the cloud and the password is known, the data cannot be decrypted.
