Steganos Password Manager 19
Passwords need to be secure, distinct, and kept protected. Furthermore, the number of passwords you need to remember is constantly increasing. Self- managing access data for every possible account is therefore no longer an option. With its highly secure encryption, Steganos Password Manager 19 provides the solution, both generating and managing strong passwords. Doing so is easy and secure. With two-factor authentication for keychains, version 19 provides even more security, optionally via third-party apps such as Authy or Google Authenticator as well. Browser plug-ins allow direct access to private favourites. If there is ever a problem with the keychain, the backup wizard provides support. Mobile access to the keychain is possible on iOS and Android devices, of course, and passwords can now be easily imported from Google Chrome.

With the Steganos Safe 19 digital safe, sensitive data such as documents, business files, images or TAN lists can be securely encrypted with 384 bit AES-XEX encryption and locked away on the PC, on the network and in the Cloud. A complete innovation is the two-factor authentication for safes, which can be optionally used via third-party apps such as Authy or Google Authenticator as well. Also new is the option of converting hard drive partitions into safes. The highly professional security software “made in Germany” offers a clearly-structured user interface that guarantees ease of use.

One program for five devices
The new Steganos Privacy Suite 19 includes a household licence for five simultaneously-used Windows computers, and so is a practical choice for the professional protection needed for the whole family.

Even on the internet there are national borders. Many clips on YouTube are unavailable in Germany. Even public broadcasters such as the European cultural channel Arte do not allow access to their content outside of certain countries with the reference: "This video is not available in your country".

Use a VPN
Bypass regionally blocked content with a VPN (virtual private network) and enjoy exclusive content in Germany, the US and other regions. The virtual private network transfers all network traffic in encrypted form. It is therefore also called a tunnel, which directs the data almost invisibly through the Internet to the point of departure of the VPN. This obscures your own geographic position.

Windows, Android, or iOS – with Steganos Online Shield VPN ( you surf safely und you can bypass domestic content blockages so you can stream videos while on the go. Select the destination country, then connect to it with a simple button and disconnect the connection just as easily.
