PrivacyScan protects online and offline privacy by shredding files that can be used to track your web browsing habits and computer usage. PrivacyScan's shred functionality is able to overwrite sensitive data up to 35 times, helping you wipe your tracks to ensure privacy! PrivacyScan works by searching for known applications which leave files on your computer that could lead to privacy concerns. PrivacyScan offers support for a wide range of items, including popular web browsers such as Camino, Chrome, Firefox, Flock, iCab, OmniWeb, Opera, Safari, SeaMonkey, and Shiira, privacy threats presented by Flash Cookies, as well as standard apps such as Finder, Preview, and QuickTime. Once a scan has run its course and privacy threats have been detected, PrivacyScan offers a variety of choices for cleaning -- from a standard quick delete to one of the many secure delete shredding options. Every time you surf the web or use your computer, bits of information are left behind -- information that could compromise your privacy. PrivacyScan provides protection against these threats by scanning your Mac for files containing sensitive information and offering multiple levels of shredding to securely erase them from your system. With PrivacyScan, you can safely and securely destroy these hidden threats -- saving space on your system and keeping your personal information from prying eyes.
