Keep Your Applications In Safe, Secure Containers

Sandboxie Personal ScreenshotHard Drive / USB Security Software ScreenshotSandboxie Personal, Hard Drive / USB Security Software ScreenshotSandboxie Personal, Security Software Screenshot

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)

I used Sandboxie for several years now. It is essential security software.

The Sandboxie 'sandboxed' browser saved my PC numerous times from virus attacks during the course of doing Internet research and visiting websites with 'unknown' reputations. Surfing from inside a 'sandboxed' browser prevents the 'nasties' from infiltrating your PC system.

Sandboxie also is highly useful for performing 'test' installs of Free or dubious software. Perform a sandboxed installation...and if the software proves to be buggy or malware, no harm done to your system.

$21 is an ULTRA cheap price for the high level of security provided by Sandboxie.

Roderick Nicolson I bought Sandboxie on here before and after one year, to my surprise, it returned to a trial version. I lost the use of a number of programs I had running under it - could no longer run them.
Was that a different offering and can you assure the above won't happen with this version?

Sandboxie Hello All, We are very excited to partner with BitsDuJour and run this promotion. The promotion is available for all home use or formerly known as personal license through the purchase of a lifetime license (most popular) or as a 1 year term license.

Preston, Thank you very much!

Roderick, regarding the license timing out on you. I am sorry that had happened, but if you purchase the lifetime license, there will be no timeout. The license is good on the current and future versions of the software.

Best regards and safe computing,

Sandboxie User @Roderick NicholsonThere is no difference in the software from the Shareware version to the paid version other than Forced folders / programs and the ability to have multiple Sandboxes active. Users find these options very valuable and never have to think about web browsing if they are sandboxed or not.

There is no trial version.

The Shareware version is fully functional. The code is the same. When you pay for SBIE, you get the shareware version, the key unlocks those 3 things mentioned above. (and no Nag screen!)

What programs did you lose the use of and how? Sandboxie does not control any of the programs, SBIE only provides the sandboxed container for which the programs run in.

On occasion, Some programs simply cannot be sandboxed (isolated- either installed directly into a Sandbox or run as sandboxed) and SBIE may not work with all antivirus programs as they interfere. We maintain a list of programs known to cause conflict, and it's updated all the time.

Flavius C Hello everybody!
Is Sandboxie tied to the computer's hardware? Cause I change quite often the video card and sometimes the SSD (I always put a larger one). (will be me that I am lazy, but) I can't find this info on Sandoxie's website.

Thanks everybody who answers, have a nice sunday!

Roderick Nicolson Cannot remember which programs they were but I do remember it was a pivotal moment. I believe I sent Sandboxie a couple of emails about it. Nothing important happened otherwise I would remember. I stopped using it after that as I could not do anything with it. Perhaps the downgrade had some critical affect on the window's system. Wish I could remember the details but cannot.

As adviced, getting a lifetime license could hopefully be the answer.

Oh! ActualIy I do however remember having Kaspersky and being told their was a conflict between Sandboxie and Kaspersky. Is this still the case? I still use Kaspersky, although Kaspersky no longer creates a secured perimeter for installing software etc. So perhaps the conflict has been eliminated.

Sandboxie User Sandboxie is an isolation program. If the program requires a driver or a service to be installed, it won't work.

Jan 17 at 11:25am Copy Link
Sandboxie User Not a huge number, there are dozens and dozens of A/V products that do work, but some that conflict with SBIE. We cannot lower or compromise SBIE for A/V product "X" to work. Simply cannot. Your primary defense is SBIE, then an A/V product of your choice. Windows Defender / Live Essentials is all you need. Why? Again, you're sandboxed. Nothing has been ever confirmed to escape that. Something A/V companies, even the best..cannot stop. SBIE doesn't stop or detect. It sandboxes and isolates. Many programs have programs that cause issues. We choose to be upfront and list that.

Craig S. Sandboxie User writes: "Your primary defense is SBIE, then an A/V product of your choice. Windows Defender / Live Essentials is all you need. Why? Again, you're sandboxed. Nothing has been ever confirmed to escape that."

This may be true, but part of the stated usage of Sandboxie is to test programs that might be suspicious / infected. However, some virus/malware is difficult to spot symptomatically. Therefore, if one can't scan with an A/V / Malware tool before taking something out of the sandbox, how can you really be sure it's safe to do so? I guess I'm a little confused...seems like there's still a risk to get infected if I can scan for malware/virus within the sandbox before moving/installing to regular system (again, assuming one has an AV / malware program that is considered incompatible.)
Jan 17 at 1:40pm Copy Link
Sandboxie User Sandboxie is not antivirus.Sandboxie is your primary defense, you can supplement with A/V that is compatible (many many are) but it also comes down to user common sense. That's your best defense. You can use SBIE, A/V and also use a VM. Nothing is 100%, so if you are testing unknown software or visiting suspect sites, then you have a risk. While nothing has been known to escape a sandbox, you should always delete the contents of that sandbox regularly. A/V is far from 100% effective in detection, and you have to rely on known threats. SBIE doesn't detect, stop, remediate any of that. What's in your sandbox, is there in the sandbox. But your browser on your host and/or your host machine is safe and nothing is changed or written to that. If you need more info, read this link

_*_ I went to pay and wanted to use PayPal. However, your checkout still requires the user to give all personal information to make the purchase.

Your motto of, "Trust No Program" can be applied to sites that require personal information when using PayPal, "Trust No Checkout". Especially one that does not honor how PayPal works to keep personal information private.

Is there a way to pay directly through PayPal to secure this deal?

I am looking at the 3 computer lifetime license.

Tortuga Hi,
I am in the process of buying a 3PC Lifetime license.
I just wanted to make sure ESET is compatible. (Sorry, will read all the incompatibility page later, don't have time now, otherwise will miss the deadline).

N.B.: It would be clearer if "Sandboxie User" logged in as the company so the logo appears on the right of the posts, so everybody understands _IT IS_ the company, now it appears as a regular user ...

J S Lets hope that Sandboxie support personnel (from the Vendor, with name displayed in GREEN ink) who did reply to Preston & Roderick WiLL REPLY TO ALL OF THE OTHER PEOPLE's QUESTiONS THAT HAVE BEEN ASKED so far.

There are 20 Comments and most of the BdJ User's are expecting some sort of reply.

I do have Two (2) QUESTiONs:

Q1. if you purchase the 3 PC License version: Does the buyer receive 3 DIFFERENT Product Keys, OR, Just the One (1) Product Key (which can be used on three (3) different PC's)?

I'll explain my reasons for the question once I have received an answer.

Q2. Again referring to the three (3) PC License deal: Do all 3 PC's have to be in the one house/apartment (for example linked to an iP Address), OR, is the Buyer at liberty to give one of the Product Keys to a relative or extremely close friend?

Many thanks in anticipation of eventual answers from the Vendor "Sandboxie".

Roderick Nicolson Just a reply to a statement made earlier by the vendor:
You should not be telling us to compromise our antivirus programs so that Sandboxie will work. Sandboxie does not do the job of an antivirus program and indeed cannot protect our systems in the same way that they do (sandboxie does a good job at what it is meant to do but that does not justify the removal or replacement of our antivirus programs so it will function). And it simply isn't your place to tell us to swap one antivirus program for another.

Most of us have spent years discovering which antivirus programs work best for us, and yet you advocate tossing them aside (Hey! We paid money for those too. I have just started a two year contract with Kaspersky. I cannot just toss it aside so Sandboxie will work for me. It really does sound at times as if you are making excuses for these incompatabilities.
I don't know which programs are at fault for these incompatabilities, but it does seem strange to me that it is Sandboxie that is the one that is incompatible with all the other programs. This suggests the problem really lies with sandboxie and not the other way round. Most other vendors find solution (have to); perhaps it is time you found some solutions for compatibility problem too.

You also said 'no compromise'. Are you saying that the other vendors do? I know for a fact that Kaspersky is a very professional, efficient, and a diligent organisation. I doubt very much that they would compromise but they do sort out compatability problems. I have experienced it two or three times now.

Sandboxie User As this is not a site, Questions are moderated here and difficult for us to respond. You can email for answers. As for licensing. You will receive (1) key for up to (3) machines that you own. VMs count as a machine and require a valid license much like Microsoft and any other software requires. Keys are non-transferable per the Sandboxie EULA. Should you run into any key issues, they can be quickly addressed via email at - Any questions should be sent there. Technical Support is handled us the User Support Forums here

_*_ A note to those interested in this software.

I purchased a copy 1/18/2016 and installed the software. upon install it displayed a window showing multiple conflicts with already installed software.
Upon a restart of my system another program (SpyShelter) threw an error of incompatibility.
I uninstalled the software, contacted CleverBridge and asked for a refund.

It may be a great program; I will never know as I am not going to remove/disable several other programs to find out.

singularity oops! missed it :(
Jan 19 at 10:37am Copy Link
Sandboxie User Once you're running in a sandbox, those programs are really redundant. Why? Antivirus (A/V) alone will not protect you like sandbox isolation can. A/V products require a subscription and the hope they will detect and update the detection files and heuristics before a threat writes to your machine - all this is done on your machine.

With Sandboxie, you never had to worry about that. If surfing / email client is run under the authority of Sandboxie. If you do get a virus/malware or ransom ware. You simply delete the contents of your sandbox and start your browser or email client again.

Virus remediation/removal isn’t needed. Your host machine is never written too and our browser is never touched. Ever. This also works in keeping your private files and folders hidden from 3rd party website and programs already on your machine.

Your primary defense should be Sandboxie, then Antivirus. It’s been proven many, many times over the 13 years that nothing can escape a sandbox and harm your computer. With Antivirus, no one can even make that claim
