Hello! It has been a while since our last post. We’ve had a lot going on at OneSafe. We are excited to announce the release of OneSafe public Beta2, the latest version of OneSafe with a lot of new and improved features.
We started working on OneSafe because we believe that privacy matters. There are few tools on the market today to protect yourself online, but most of them are too technical for the average person. It has always been our goal to create approachable software that can be used by everyone.
OneSafe Beta1 was launched a little under 1 year ago. In that time, we’ve had some ups and downs but we’ve stayed true to our mission. We’ve maintained a small user base over this time and their feedback inspired us to continue working on OneSafe. Over the past 6 months, we’ve quietly been at work developing our next release. We’ve got some really great features for both current users and our future users. Below you can find a breakdown of all the new goodies in this release.
Your favorite Safe, the advanced secure place for your digital assets, is getting better and faster. While our encryption in Beta1 was robust it hasn’t always been super fast. That changes in this release, though! User’s will now experience blazing fast encryption speeds that are orders of magnitude faster than in earlier versions. Also, file encryption now takes place in the background so users can continue to use OneSafe even as they are encrypting one, or many files.
One thing has not changed, and it will never change, is the zero-knowledge encryption. We know nothing about what you are uploading or downloading on our server, and we do not save anything. Your files will be encrypted on your device with your own key. Nobody else, including OneSafe, will be able to see your data. Your files will look like gibberish to prying eyes.
Drive, by OneSafe, is our way making cloud storage more convenient than ever for our users.
With Drive, users can view all of their cloud files through OneSafe. User’s can connect multiple cloud storage accounts to their OneSafe and view all of the files right in our file explorer. This eliminates the need for remember which file is kept where and makes OneSafe your one-stop for accessing your cloud files where you can access, manage, and search.
One-click to encrypt your file; one-click to connect to your cloud; one-click to enable secured backup. We developed the simplest way for you to protect your privacy in the cloud, with all the complicated parts kept under the covers.
A completely new user interface
Layouts, text, fonts, even iconography have been updated and improved to bring OneSafe inline with popular design practices for the web. User’s can expect a great, visually pleasing experience.
Plus lots, lots more…
- Password change and password reset- The only client-side encryption service where you can reset your password without losing your data.
- Support for Microsoft’s OneDrive – Now connect to even more clouds.

- Drag & Drop – Drag and drop files to upload and/or encrypt.
- Search – You can now search for files in all of your clouds via Drive Search.
What is missing from this release?
Well, for one, sharing isn’t ready yet. We’ve been working hard to enable sharing but unfortunately, we just aren’t there yet. Don’t worry though. We should have it ready in time for our next release in approximately 3 months.
