About Secure Virtual Desktop for Windows 8
Secure Virtual Desktop now has support for Windows 8. On the Windows 8 operating system, SVD provides the same data protection and anonymous browsing capabilities, but with a slightly different look and feel.
On Windows 8 machines, Secure Virtual Desktop can be launched from the desktop to open an isolated workspace inside a secure session. Once inside the secure session, the same settings will be changed as on other Windows operating systems; additionally, the new Windows 8 user interface will not be accessible. Secure Virtual Desktop adds back the missing start menu to allow you to access your files and applications. Mouse over the balloons below to learn more about Secure Virtual Desktop on Windows 8.
Your desktop and taskbar items do not show inside Secure Virtual Desktop, but they can be accessed through the start menu at the bottom of the screen.
SVD is a secure way to use any unknown or shared computer to access sensitive or confidential information online. Anything done within SVD will leave NO TRACE on your machine once your session is over, as all data is wiped clean upon exiting the program.
Please make sure to finish your work in fifteen minutes - any ongoing activity will be lost when your session ends. Start a new session to get 15 more minutes of secure, private browsing.
Use this sidebar to switch between your Secure Virtual Desktop and your regular desktop, or click exit to close this session and erase all traces of your changes and activities.
Your installed applications and saved files are accessible through the start menu, however some applications are not compatible with SVD. Visit the settings page to learn which applications may be run in your SVD session.
