PrivacyScan expands cleaning support for Internet and desktop apps

PrivacyScan 1.2 is now available in the Mac App Store with updated privacy cleaning features and support. 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.

The software includes expanded privacy cleaning support for Internet and desktop apps including flash cookies for the Google Chrome browser, SeaMonkey’s auto-complete typed history, and QuickTime caches and history files. This new version of PrivacyScan adds enhancements to the user interface and experience, additionally including bug fixes.

PrivacyScan offers support for a wide range of programs, including popular web browsers such as Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Camino, Flock, iCab, OmniWeb, Opera, 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.
