When you buy a copy of SecureSafe Pro Password Manager, you will get minor updates and bug fixes for free. Minor updates are updates of which the first version number has not changed. So if you buy SecureSafe Pro Password Manager 1.xx, you can upgrade to any other version of SecureSafe Pro Password Manager 1.xx free of charge.
You can check the version history on the SecureSafe Pro Password Manager web site to ensure that you are using the latest version. As you can see in the version history, minor updates are frequently released.
How to Get The Latest (Minor) Update
To upgrade your copy of SecureSafe Pro Password Manager, you are able to download the update package contained only the updated binaries or you can simply download the latest version and install it. If you always download the complete package, you do not need to have the previous version installed to install the latest version. There is also no need to uninstall the previous version before upgrading if you do have it installed.
Major upgrades are indicated by a change in the first version number. So an upgrade from 1.xx to 2.0 is a major upgrade. Major upgrades usually have a significant amount of improvements and new features. Therefore, you will likely have to pay an upgrade fee if you want to take advantage of a major update. This fee is typically half the price of the product. We do reserve the right to give you major updates for free as well, though. This decision will depend on how major the upgrade really is.
However, if a major upgrade is not free, the previous version will remain available for those who purchased it in the past and feel no need to upgrade. You will never be forced to upgrade. You will still be entitled to technical support if you continue to use the previous version. However, you will not receive any further updates with improvements or new features. And if you originally bought 1.xx, you can still buy the 3.xx upgrade even if you did not buy the 2.xx upgrade.
