Summary

You will occasionally want to create bookmarks without sharing them with others using your computer. Where to store this information safely? Secure Bookmarks allows you to store such bookmarks in a separate list, safely encrypted on your hard drive. After opening your browser, simply click the Secure Bookmarks icon and enter your password to retrieve your bookmarks! All decrypted information is lost the second you close your browser.
