How do I use Safely Open?
Why use Safely Open?
If you open untrusted content like files or web pages on your computers there is a risk that your digital life will be damaged. The ability to run your business decimated. Your precious family memories lost. Sometimes it isn’t easy to work out what is a legitimate email, file or link. With Safely Open you upload these items you don’t trust onto our quarantine computers and take a look without any risk of compromising your system.
Anti-virus software is an essential part of all computer security and something we thoroughly recommend – but it isn’t enough. Most anti-virus software looks for what it knows to be a virus. But, if you receive malicious software that your anti-virus doesn’t know about, it can have difficulty protecting you. This is why Safely Open can help you unlike traditional anti-virus. We open your suspicious items in an entirely separate, disposable environment far away from your computer, phone or tablet.
