Protecting Mac OS X from privacy threats
SecureMac.com released PrivacyScan, a utility designed for people who value privacy and want to keep their online and offline experiences private.
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.
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.
