Opening POLICY files

Did your computer fail to open a POLICY file? We explain what POLICY files are and recommend software that we know can open or convert your POLICY files.

What is a POLICY file?

Files that contain the .policy file extension are most commonly used by the Java programming language. The Java programming language was first released by Sun Microsystems in 1995 and serves as the underlying technology for many games, websites, utilities and software applications.

When multiple Java programs run on a node in a Java virtual machine, they all share the same POLICY file. Java applications implement a number of POLICY files in order to handle application security.

The .policy file extension is also used for the policy files that are used for the Opera Web browser. The Opera browser can be used on computers, smart phones and other mobile devices.
