Whenever we browse anything using a browser, our steps are tracked and can be found inside the History section. Similarly, whatever we do on our Windows system, all the operations get recorded. If you often use the system which is shared by other people, then privacy may be of paramount importance for some of you. Manually cleaning the tracks is not an easy task. Meet Privacy Eraser, a one-click solution to flush out all your history records, browser cache, and cookies.
Information security is often much more vulnerable than it seems. A deleted file can be restored with specialized tools; browser Temporary files can reveal last visited websites and downloaded data, even if the history was cleaned up, while temporary files left in the system can assist a trespasser´s efforts in recovering personal information.
This free tool can help home, and corporate users keep all data on the PC safe. Privacy Eraser Free ensures deleted files remain deleted, and no one can access private information of any kind, be that browser history, third-party application data, personal documents or anything else.
With Privacy Eraser, you can erase the tracks from leading web browsers, hard drive, commonly system folders, third-party software and more. The tool claims to clean the records forever, which cannot be recovered at all.
