Where is my data stored on my computer/device?

Your data is also automatically synced to our cloud servers. In the event that you need to recover your data due to a device crash, simply reinstall the SecretSafe application and log in and your data will be re-synced.

All sensitive data stored on your computer/device is encrypted. The data can be found in the following locations:


  • Windows
    • Standard Installations & Store: %AppData%\SecretSafe
    • Portable: .\secretsafe-appdata
  • macOS
    • Standard Installations: ~/Library/Application Support/SecretSafe
    • Mac App Store: ~/Library/Containers/com.secretsafe.desktop/Data/Library/Application Support/SecretSafe
  • Linux
    • Standard Installations: ~/.config/SecretSafe
    • Snap: ~/snap/secretsafe/current/.config/SecretSafe

You can override the storage location for your SecretSafe desktop application data by setting the SECRETSAFE_APPDATA_DIR environment variable to an absolute path.

To enhance security, Firefox uses Universally Unique Identifiers (UUIDs) within extension storage folder names. Use the about:debugging#/runtime/this-firefox page (navigate from Firefox's address bar) to locate your SecretSafe extension UUID. Replace [UUID] with that UUID. Note also that Firefox allows users to customize where to store their profiles (and thus local SecretSafe extension data). The location specified above is the default.

  • Android: /data/data/com.xraytio.secretsafe/


  • Windows: %AppData%\SecretSafe CLI
