CapeSoft Safe Writer is used to encrypt files and in so doing to create a Safe File (having a .SAF extension), which can then be safely distributed with virtually no risk of unwanted users reading the files. A password or key provided by the user is used for the encryption. Safe Reader can then be used to open and decrypt the Safe File (providing the user has the correct key).
