Linux Desktop

 Hi, I'm a newbie to this forum, but a long time Msecure user. I couldn't find any reference to Linux in the Forum discussions, so I'd like to request a Linux version of Msecure desktop. I can't bring myself to install Windows 10 and of course Msecure Desktop doesn't install on XP. But I've been migrating to Linux, and would love to take Msecure 5 with me. Thanks

Hi Ted,

Welcome to our forum and thank you for the feature request. What distro are you using on Linux? Ubuntu? Since it sounds like you're using XP which is practically ancient, perhaps you've opted for a less system intense flavor of Ubuntu such as Kubuntu or Lubuntu. Of the Ubuntu variants I'm really enjoying Ubuntu Bungie at the moment. LXLE is a great distro for older computers.

This feature request has been requested by several users (about 20 users in our last forum system). However, we are unlikely to create a Linux version of mSecure unless there is just overwhelming demand for a Linux version. However, we will be releasing browser plugins of mSecure 5, and I am hoping we are able to release a fully independent version of our plugin which would allow users to use our browser plugin on Chrome and(or) Firefox on any system. A fully independent browser plugin would require the use our our mSecure Cloud feature though. 

Again, thank you for the request and I'm sorry I don't have better news here. 

+1... (just moved from Windows to Linux for my desktop machine).  But since a Linux version isn't a priority (understandably!) -- @Mike, is there any chance the synchronization protocol is documented somewhere?  I'd be open to writing a simple client, depending on how complex the protocol is.  (I've done some security-critical dev work in the past, and I think I understand some of the dangers involved.)

Make an amazing solution better by supporting LINUX ....

Please reconsider a LINUX version and especially for Ubuntu.... your competitors offer this and Browser plug-ins!

Just adding another voice—I support the need for a Linux solution from mSecure. I would prefer a native desktop app of some kind, but I would also be happy with just a web-based system or even some official help with a Wine solution (would Proton help?)

I would like to add my voice to getting a Linux version of mSecure desktop. 

Just a point to consider once you have a desktop for Linux it would then appear in the software manager which would then help push your software to a whole group of untapped users.

Adding another +1 to the web-based integration. I would also still request a Snap, an Appimage, an anything for Linux; The Wifi sync would be much nicer for my use case to have on a machine that is on all the time, I normally don't keep multiple of my machines running at once.

Just another voice here - from Germany - from a long-standing MSecure user, who also just subscribed to the premium plan - who would welcome a Ubuntu / Linux client. Me too migrated away from Windows 10 recently as my, older, PC hardware is no longer supported by the latest Windows 11 (TPM 2.0 chip crap). Because of how I understand how software application works, I would also welcome a - secure - web client which works on FireFox., but also understand that won't happen immediately.

 A web client would be handy - even as just a read-only way of viewing the data. For me a native Linux app is a nice-to-have but mostly because I find it such a faff entering/editing data on a smartphone or tablet and like a proper big keyboard!

Also would like a Linux version of mSecure.  Have been using mSecure on W10/7 etc for many years but time to move to Linux and so, unfortunately it seems, will have to move away from mSecure.


@John, @Dougie Thank you both for your feedback. @John, I wasn't even aware you could run a full-blown Windows install on Linux. We had a user ask about a side-loadable version to try to run on a Mint distro, but he was not able to get it working. I'll have to let people know about using Virtualbox to get mSecure on Linux. I know, not the most elegant solution, but at least it's possible =)

Still no plans for Linux, but browser plugins will be here for Mac at first release of v6 and will be available for Windows in a future release of v6.

Sstill no use (anymore) of msecure.  Secure "own solution" adopted. Sorry, enjoy the "happy" and "unaware"  OSX/Windows/Iphone/Android customers.

@Dougie It's possible we'll have a web client at some point in the future. At this time, however, we don't have plans to serve up mSecure information in a web-based app.

@Robert Unfortunately, at this time, I don't foresee us building a Linux version of mSecure anytime soon. It's possible it could happen in the future, but now is definitely not the time to take on this type of venture. I do thank you for your feedback, and I'm sorry I don't have better news.

I used to use evernote and the lack of a Linux client was not so much of a problem because the Web interface was pretty decent. Might that happen?
