Sophos announces that Sandboxie's paid features are now availiable for free in latest version.

+4 Deal Score
I've been using Sandboxie for years and had two lifetime licenses. I honestly wouldn't know what to do without having my browser and other internet facing apps running in a sandbox.

You will have to agree to their user agreement and fill out a form to get the download. I was also able to grab a copy from majorgeeks that didn't require the form but I didn't run the installer and have no idea if you have to complete the form to install.

Sophos is excited to announce that we are making Sandboxie a free tool, with plans to transition it to an open source tool.

This new evolution of Sandboxie is one we are enthusiastic about, but that does not mean this was an easy decision to make. Sandboxie has never been a significant component of Sophos' business, and we have been exploring options for its future for a while.

Frankly, the easiest and least costly decision for Sophos would have been to simply end of life Sandboxie. However, we love the technology too much to see it fade away. More importantly, we love the Sandboxie community too much to do that. The Sandboxie user base represents some of the most passionate, forward thinking, and knowledgeable members of the security community and we didn't want to let you down.

After thoughtful consideration we decided that the best way to keep Sandboxie going was to give it back to its users – transitioning it to an open source tool. We will release more information about the open source project as we continue to work on the details.

Until the open source transition is completed we have decided to make all restricted features of Sandboxie completely free.
