iSafe is a software program developed by Woodtale Technology Inc. Upon being installed, the software adds a Windows Service which is designed to run continuously in the background. Manually stopping the service has been seen to cause the program to stop functing properly. It adds a background controller service that is set to automatically run. Delaying the start of this service is possible through the service manager. A scheduled task is added to Windows Task Scheduler in order to launch the program at various scheduled times (the schedule varies depending on the version). The primary executable is named iSafe.exe. The setup package generally installs about 64 files and is usually about 29.55 MB (30,983,147 bytes). Relative to the overall usage of users who have this installed on their PCs, most are running Windows 7 (SP1) and Windows 10. While about 38% of users of iSafe come from the United States, it is also popular in France and Israel.
