Privacy Software

According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), approximately 27.3 million Americans, or over 9% of the population, have fallen victim to identity theft in the last five years.

As you use your computer, and surf the web, traces of your activity get left behind, stored on your computer in lists, temporary files, and caches. The best case is that these "leftovers" can clutter up your PC, and, with time, degrade its performance. The worst case is that someone that gains unauthorized access to your PC can read these files and learn a fair amount about you, potentially helping them to steal your identity.

Privacy software removes all traces of your PC and Internet activity, helping to protect your privacy and identity. Privacy software typically cleans up after your browser(s) deleting unwanted cookies, temporary Internet files (cache), auto–complete data, web site browsing history, and download histories. It also cleans up after the operating system removing suspect Windows startup files, sub–files, temporary files, permanent files, and even directories and registry entries when warranted.

Privacy software typically costs between $15.00 and $100.00. This is a very small amount of money when compared to the catastrophic impact of having your identity stolen.

Following are listings for free trials of privacy software, and listings for charged-for privacy software products.
