Editors' Review

You're probably familiar with online data storage sites that promise to store your critical data securely, but do you really believe your data is totally safe when it's in someone else's hands and online, too? And are you sure that your computer's Internet connection is totally secure from intrusion and even attack? Common sense suggests the answer to both questions is "No," and that's the rationale behind MyInfosafe. It creates an encrypted, password-protected "personal data warehouse" that stores your important documents and data securely in your PC, not online. It does much more, though, such as creating simple but easy-to-understand financial statements and storing your family's health records.

After creating our user ID and password, we logged on to MyInfosafe. This program offers considerable support, including a help-oriented toolbar with an online help link and video tutorials, Tips and Hints, and a handy calculator. From this same toolbar, we could save our data and either log out or exit the program, access the extensive Services menu, and open the Settings page, which let us change the look and feel of the interface as well as set data backup options and USB pen drive settings for MyInfosafe's portable backup feature. A menu entry labeled Family Member displayed our account name, which was the main user account, but we could also set up personal MyInfosafe repositories for others. The fastest way to access MyInfosafe's many features is the left-hand navigation panel, which we could switch to the right-hand side with a click. Surprisingly, we couldn't expand and contract the "tree view," though we could remove entries via the Settings page. The program's main categories are My Information, My Life, My Finances, and My Asset Repository. Each has numerous subcategories, except for My Life, which has but one, a life-planning tool called My Goals. Clicking on any entry called up its page view in the main window; for instance, clicking Contacts under My Information let us easily enter contact data, while clicking Appliances under My Asset Repository gave us a place to enter data about major home appliances, as well as attach documents and images.

We found MyInfosafe easy to use and packed with extras, such as a Digital Diary, easy Reminders, and the ability to back up data to a portable storage device such as a USB drive, which also means you can take your critical health, legal, and financial records with you when you travel, safely encrypted. MyInfosafe is free to try for 30 days and costs just under 30 bucks, which is certainly cheaper than a lot of the trouble it's designed to prevent.

Editors' note: This is a review of the full version of MyInfosafe 2.2.1. The trial version is limited to 30 days.
