Applications are careless creatures. Just like hyperactive little children they run amok wherever they can and often leave behind a mess (of auxiliary files) that you have to clean up.

The sandbox is a safe, secure place for kids to play, so why not confine your new and unproven applications to a similar residence?

Sandboxie sets up a safe, secure space on your hard drive for unruly and untrusted applications to operate rather than spreading it across a wasteland of fragmented drive sectors.

Sandboxie allows for the creation of numerous sandboxes for different levels of security. For example, you can easily designate a sandbox to test out new software before integrating it into your hard drive proper. And if something gets lost in the sandbox, Sandboxie has quick one-click file recovery. Finally, when you're absoluetly sure that an application or file is secure, you can lift it out of the sandbox, dust it off, and welcome it to its new home -- your hard drive.

But here's the knockout punch -- Sandboxie actually increases your internet security. Sandboxie can be set to limit your browser's access to the rest of your hard-drive while offering quick clean up and a "stop all activity" command -- including activity you didn't even know about!

Please note: the one year countdown begins after the product key is first activated. So, if you buy two licenses you can wait to activate the second until the first has expired.

This promotion includes the following:
Sandboxie - Home Use Lifetime License (1 Computer) ($34.95)
Sandboxie - Home Use Annual Subscription (1 Computer, 1 Year) ($20.95)
Sandboxie - Home Use Lifetime License (3 Computers) ($49.95)

Matt Hello. Will the 'Lifetime License' also be on sale? If so, will it also be at a 58% discount? Thank you.

Amit 1) Someone posted this above in comments -

"Sandbox contents also stay there until manual erasure, even after a reboot. This can be a good thing, as you can test software over a period of time within the sandbox. However, since the erasure isn't automatic, if a piece of malware infects the sandbox, it stays in there until you remember to clear the sandbox, making protection a bit less "automatic" than hard drive virtualizers like Power Shadow. "

So my que is How can I keep for eg. say a portable firefox browser full usage for further use and all contents saved - for future use as well ?

Roberto I think with reg version you can create many diferent sandboxes. This will solve your problem.

Amit @ Roberto - If u answered my question, its still not clear how to. I would like to not delete what a portable firefox has surfed -all tabs opened + everything in it - for some days, instead of losing it after closing. Can you surely say that can be done with registered version. I will find out by searching myself too.

Roberto @ Amit - lets see. I created a separate sandbox called "sandbox firefox", downloaded firefox portable and right clicked it and choose Run Sandboxed.

The program ask me where i want to run it, and i can choose the newly created "firefox" sandbox.

All the instalation will remain in the sandbox until you clear it.

My path is somethig like:

C:\Sandbox\DOC01\Firefox\user\current\Mis documentos\Downloads\FirefoxPortable\App\Firefox

you can practice with the free version, but only one sandbox will be allowed.

Just create your installation in the free version under "Sandbox DefaultBox" and imagine that could be a separate sandbox when you buy fhe full version.

Today's promotion is for the one-year license only.

HongJun Lin I hope there will be life-time license here.

Matt Thanks Roger

@Roberto - Thank you for your helpful comments and very helpful video!

I installed the Trial version and whenever I run either Firefox or Internet Explorer, I can't connect to websites. I get a 'Unable to connect' message within Firefox and a similar message in IE. I don't have any problems going to websites when I run either Firefox or IE outside of Sandboxie.

I wonder if anyone knows what might be wrong?

Thank you.

Danny I was more interested in liftime upgrade fully licensed version. One year subscription to which I have nothing. Sorry, but this let me pass from me!

Matt Has anybody tried to contact the developer?

I've attempted to contact him through the Sandboxie website and I've never received any replies.

Looks like he doesn't reply to questions here on BDJ either.

William Diacheysn Still cheaper to run questionable programs in a virtual machine if you have to update the license every year, for that reason I pass on this one, if it was the lifetime license I would be a lot more impressed and probably buy that.
Oct 15 2012 at 6:19am Copy Link
Danny For everything belongs to what. But I cannot understand that a one year subscription in place and No Deal with the BDJ liftime licence!!!

Chad Biggerstaff I'd be up for 25% off on a lifetime license, not going to go for year license(s). If there's a coupon code or something for such let me know.
Oct 15 2012 at 7:43am Copy Link
Matt Unless you have a life expectancy of 5 years or less, buy the lifetime license. And there is no hurry to buy a lifetime license, because that license never seems to go on sale. You can purchase that one anytime.

The developer still has not replied to my emails and doesn't seem to reply to questions here either.

I still can't understand a 1-year license scheme on software of this type. It's not like it's an anti-virus or anti-malware program.

Maybe this sale is just being used as an advertisement to draw you to purchase the lifetime license at full price. Who knows?

Roderick Nicolson I've been using the trial version of this product for some time now. It's worked flawlessly on my computer and does everything it says it will. I like the simplicity and ease of use.
I have Kaspersky Internet Security which also has a sandbox but found it too difficult and confusing to use.
As for the license, I believe the one year is for updates. The software itself will continue for it's lifetime. Perhaps the owners will confirm this.
Oct 15 2012 at 8:37am Copy Link
Nige Bruce The total lack of response from the developer to my initial question above and the absence of a lifetime license offer has convinced me this is not a worthwhile offer. Sandboxie are notorious for not discounting their lifetime license it would seem, judging from the FAQ on the website, they don't even offer a discount for charities. So I think I'll pass on this one, shame as it's a very good piece of software.
Oct 15 2012 at 8:50am Copy Link
Lito Read their FAQ on the site, the license is for 1 year of use and updates. If you don't want the program expiring on you yearly you will need to buy a lifetime one.

The policy listed on this site clearly states you are paying for 1 year of usage of the program:
"Sandboxie Personal One-Year License may be used for 12 months."

Sputnik My personal advice concerning Sandboxie Personal One-Year License : DON'T BUY IT !!!

Why ?

Because it is really better to buy the lifetime licence which is worth the price.

There are a couple of very good softwares that offers such a lifetime licence (like Malwarebyte's) and Sandboxie is really one of them.

Danny @Robert Tardif,

You speak my thought here! Was not planning to buy precisely for the reason that you mentioned! Frustrating is that the representative of this software gives no answers. Apparently he/she has no good argument for answers!
Oct 15 2012 at 11:09am Copy Link
Roger Thomasson Folks, I'll say it again, there isn't going to be a discount for the lifetime license. So save your fingers some repetitive stress and stop asking :)

Please note, we don't expect our vendors to answer questions that have already been answered on the BDJ promo page.

As the policy tab clearly states:

"Sandboxie Personal One-Year License may be used for 12 months."

That means yes, it'll stop working after a year.

If you're dead set on the lifetime license, feel free to click over to the Sandboxie website where you'll find it available for a very reasonable $39.44.

Sputnik @Roger Thomasson

You are perfectly right when you say that this price of $39.44 for the lifetime license is reasonable.

Hey, it's a one time fee and you get all the future upgrades free afterwhile.

If you avoid buying this one year license at $7.50 and get right now the lifetime license, it is like if you were saving 20% compared to someone who would buy the one year license first and the lifetime license a year or more later...

Personally I don't ask for a deal on the lifetime license because I already own such a license and I never regretted to buy it.

Matt @Robert Tardif

Your enthusiasm towards Sandboxie and the lifetime license is very encouraging. And I would agree with you in avoiding the one year license and going directly for the lifetime license.

But what discourages me is the developer not answering questions here on BDJ. I can understand the developer not answering repetitive questions concerning 'discounts on lifetime licenses', but I posted a question above concerning problems I've encountered in using a basic feature of Sandboxie. I've also emailed the developer concerning this and my questions remained unanswered.

Looking at the current comments and the '134 older comments', the developer has failed to answer 1 single question.

If the developer won't answer pre-purchase questions here on BDJ and won't reply to email, what will his response be after the sale?
Oct 15 2012 at 1:53pm Copy Link
Roger Thomasson Ok, turns out the 1-year license doesn't stop working, but rather reverts to 'free' mode.

From Ronen, the developer:

"The software can be used for free indefinitely without ever getting a license, so if one does have a license and it expires, the software simply goes back to free mode and you can keep using it without an active license... The free version is missing the automatic sandboxing feature ("forced programs") and the option to run programs in more than one sandbox at the same time. Also, there is a nag screen occasionally."

Roger Thomasson @ James

We don't require vendors to participate in these BDJ conversations. The majority choose to, but for a number of reasons some do not. It's up to you whether or not you want to draw a correlation between responsiveness here and how responsive a developer is via his/her established support channels, but bear in mind that you could be grossly mistaken.
BitsDuJour Admin - Oct 15 2012 at 2:06pm Copy Link
Matt Thanks Roger. I now see that the developer seems to be very active on his forum.

Roger Thomasson @ James

Unfortunately it's getting very late over in Ronen's neck of the woods, but he wanted to let everybody know that the Sandboxie forum doesn't require a subscription to utilize and recommended customers direct their questions there.
BitsDuJour Admin - Oct 15 2012 at 3:06pm Copy Link
Matt Thanks Roger for checking this out! I'll direct my questions there. Sandboxie seems to be a really good deal. I'm sure I'll be purchasing soon!

Price is the regular full price and not $17.72!
Nov 27 2013 at 4:57am Copy Link
Constantin Florea @Dave Smith - I am sorry for the issue. The old price ($17.72) was the regular price we had on file for this promotion since last time we promoted it. It seems the vendor changed the regular price since then but we didn't get to update it until today. The regular price is now updated accordingly.
