Publisher's Description

A text editor with awesome security features and encryption:

SafePad is a simple free text editor that lets you encrypt your documents using the industry standard FIPS Compliant AES encryption algorithm (Advanced Encryption Standard). To protect your document you can provide 2 passwords (the 2nd password is optional). Passwords have always been a problem when it comes to security as users tend to pick a password that is easy for them to remember. This also means that the password is most likely easy to crack.

By using 2 passwords and performing multiple iterations of encryption, it makes it much harder to crack the passwords.

Safe Pad features and highlights:
  • Encrypt your documents using AES encryption based on the strength of 2 passwords
  • Password entry form has a password strength indicator
  • Rich text editor with familiar word processing formatting controls and font selection.
  • Low contrast themes to make the text harder to read on the screen if people are looking over your shoulder
  • White Out Theme that turns all the text white when you press CTRL 2. This is in-case you spot someone looking at your screen and you want to quickly make the text invisible
  • Quickly minimize the application by pressing the Escape key if someone is looking at your screen
  • Drag and drop files from explorer into your document so they get encrypted too
  • On Screen Keyboard that allows you to enter the password with a mouse or touch screen. This was requested by people who were worried about key loggers on their computer
  • Browse to a link when a URL is highlighted in the document.

Safe Pad is licensed as Freeware for Windows (32-bit and 64-bit) operating system / platform from text editors without restrictions. Safe Pad 1.2 is available to all software users as a free download (Freeware).

This text editor software is filed under:

Compatibility with this text editor software may vary, but will generally run fine under Microsoft Windows 10, 8, 8.1, 7, Vista and XP on either a 32-bit or 64-bit setup. A separate x64 version may be available from Stephen Haunts.
