Walton On Thames, United Kingdom – Today Ross Flint, developer of PreferenceCleaner, is proud to announce the initial release of BitSafe 1.0.1, a new personal information manager for OS X. BitSafe is designed to store and organise sensitive information such as passwords and financial details in a safe and secure format. Documents can be stored in iCloud or Dropbox to make help ensure that the latest versions are always available when you need them.

BitSafe includes a range of note types, allowing users to store login information, credit cards, software licenses and images, as well as other textual information and even store whole files, inside documents. Notes can be freely organised in a folder hierarchy to help you keep track of them. Documents are encrypted using the AES-256 encryption standard.

BitSafe also supports a new encrypted archive format for those times when you need to encrypt a file or folder without the trouble of embedding it in a document. The BitSafe Archive format (BitAr) uses the same AES-256 encryption as BitSafe documents, and also offers gzip compression to help keep file sizes down. A free application (BitSafeArchiverLE) will be released soon, so that you can share BitSafeArchives with people who don’t use BitSafe.

Feature List:
* Store a wide range of information in secure documents with AES-256 encryption
* Favicons and application icons help to visually differentiate your notes
* Use iCloud or Dropbox to share and synchronise your documents across your Macs (and iOS devices using the iOS version which is available separately)
* Powerful search system
* Create and open BitSafe Archive files to securely transmit any file or folder
* Browser extensions are available for Safari, Chrome and Firefox to log in to websites quickly
* Built-in password generator with configurable complexity
* XML schema available for import – supply software license details as XML for instant import

It will be available on the Mac App Store at a cost of $1.99 (or equivalent amount in other currencies). BitSafeArchiverLE is a free version which provides read-only support.
