Securemaker - the death of All-in-One Secretmaker

notes from ClifNotes, Jun 2007, permalink Security Tools


From Clif:

I've mentioned SecretMaker before. I've had friends who tell me that it makes their lives online more secure and less visible to the bad guys.


One of my friends, known only as Mindblower, wrote me this week about the death of Secretmaker.


Quoting Mindblower

I've been using and promoting a freeware product named Secretmaker for several years, and helping out as an Admin of the companies forum. On June 1, 2007, the product and forum were canceled and replaced by something called Securemaker. It's current version is 5.0.9, it's still a Beta, which you only find out after installing, and it's not Vista ready.


For years, the team behind both products were truly on the side of the user, to help them with a product which worked, and listen to suggestions.


Apparently behind the scene changes took place, and this team is NO longer providing an excellent product and/or service. As someone who helped spread good news about Secretmaker, I find myself on the other side cautioning people to stay away from Securemaker.




From Clif:

Mindblower still recommends the older versions of Secretmaker, but where can you get them? Take a look below to find out.
