Sandboxie License Winners Announced

I consider Sandboxie an essential and primary tool for protecting my machines from cybercrimals.”

Sandboxie’s creator, Ronen Tzur, has graciously and generously donated five licenses to me, to award to my readers. I sincerely thank him for that.

Some Benefits of the Isolated Sandbox

  • Secure Web Browsing: Running your Web browser under the protection of Sandboxie means that all malicious software downloaded by the browser is trapped in the sandbox and can be discarded trivially.
  • Enhanced Privacy: Browsing history, cookies, and cached temporary files collected while Web browsing stay in the sandbox and don’t leak into Windows.
  • Secure E-mail: Viruses and other malicious software that might be hiding in your email can’t break out of the sandbox and can’t infect your real system.

To paraphrase: What happens in the sandbox stays in the sandbox.

Note: Sandboxie is NOT a replacement, nor substitute, for traditional anti-Malware (antivirus+anti-Spyware) but is used in conjunction with. I highly recommend that first time users see, Tutorial: Getting Started with Sandboxie. This is a serious security tool and taking the time to learn how it works is well worth it! Using Sandboxie is simple, there’s just a few things to know.

Ronen has always offered this (essential, IMHO) security tool free, for which he has long earned a big tip of my Geek hat. It consistently wins “Best” and “Top” mentions on the reputable download sites, and is one of the few titles I think is worth upgrading to “Pro” (paid). The Sandboxie website is here, try it out yourself!

Without further ado: Congratulations to..

The lucky winners will be sent an e-mail containing their license key, with the subject “Sandboxie Winner”. (You may need to check your Junk folder.)

Again I thank Ronen for making this giveaway possible!
