- Why do you need Privacy Eraser?
- Maybe you don't realize that Windows and many third-party applications store history about what you have done, what documents you have used, what websites you have visited, what images and movies you have seen, and various other activities you have performed. All these history are stored on your computer.
- The Windows built-in functions will not protect you, most of the history can not be deleted with them. Therefore, anyone else can see what you have been doing on your computer, which raises several privacy concerns. Furthermore, much of your activity information takes up valuable drive space, and recovering this space can be very beneficial.
- Cleaning up the history of your activities can be a tedious chore of manually removing each history file or entry. If privacy and drive space are to be maintained, this process must be performed every time you use your computer. Our excellent all-in-one privacy suite, Privacy Eraser can automate this process for you!
- How does it work?
- When you delete a file from Windows, Windows just mark the file as deleted in File Allocation Table, no data is changed or overwritten and the file's contents will still exist on your computer, there are many tools available which can let others easily recover your sensitive files. Privacy Eraser completely overwrites the contents of the file and then deletes it, so an undelete program will never be able to recover it.
- Furthermore, the free space on hard drive usually contains the contents of the files that were previously deleted using standard Windows system commands, even you can not see them, the deleted files are still on your hard drive. Privacy Eraser permanently erases all the data on the free space with several series of passes to minimize data remanence on drives using any current techniques of encoding data on the hard drive, ensures that deleted files will not be recovered by any third party software.
- Can data erased by Privacy Eraser be recovered?
- Privacy Eraser completely implements and exceeds the US Department of Defense and NSA clearing and sanitizing standard, to gives you confidence that once erased, your file data is gone forever and can not be recovered.
- Note: The US Department of Defense recommends 3 overwrites, NSA recommends 7 overwrites. The more times you specify, the longer the wipe cycle will take, especially for large files or hard drives.
- Why do some browsing history still exist after cleaning?
- It is strongly recommended that you close all Windows Explorers, browsers and applications before cleaning, because some files can not be deleted when they are in use. For Mozilla Firefox, Google Chrome, Safari and Opera, even you close all the windows of them, maybe their icons are still in the system tray (lower right of the screen). Please check the system tray to see if there is an icon of them, if you can find, please right click on it to close it.
