Editors' Review


CyberScrub Privacy Suite not only securely deletes and destroys private data from disks, browsers, and caches in excess of DoD standards, but also monitors your system for threats. It can run automatically, including at startup, and includes advanced scheduling, command-line functionality, permissions, password protection, data encryption, and a broad range of data destruction criteria. Version 5.1 has improved Windows 8 and Shadow Copy compatibility.


Privacy Guard: The Privacy Guard removes files your computer accumulates without your knowledge or even your permission, including browsing tracks and Windows swap, paging, and temporary files and many third-party applications.

Scheduling: You can set the Erase Beyond Recovery tool to run automatically every 7, 30, or 90 days, or a custom setting.

Risk Monitor: The new Risk Monitor runs in the background and issues Risk Alerts from the system tray. It can run the Privacy Guard, Securely Empty Recycle Bin, and other features.

Shadow copies: Instead of destroying all Volume Shadow Copies in Windows, CyberScrub Privacy Suite can target only those Shadow Copies that threaten your privacy.


Confusing settings: You can't open CyberScrub Privacy Suite's general settings from the main interface but must right-click the Risk Monitor icon in the system tray and select Settings. Yet to change whether the program starts with Windows, you must open the Scheduler's tray icon menu.

Bottom Line

While there's no price on privacy, CyberScrub Privacy Suite isn't cheap. But freeware alternatives can't match its features and performance.

Editors' note: This is a review of the trial version of CyberScrub Privacy Suite

"No good anymore. Updates take weeks."

When it works, it does a good job. Unfortunately, it rarely works.


The people at Cyberscrub who update their software are no longer capable of keeping up. I bought Privacy Suite multiple years ago, and I've been paying for the updated releases since then. Earlier this year, they went nearly a MONTH before the program was updated for the latest release of Google Chrome. Now, Chrome is on v46, and has been for weeks. No update. And Mozilla Firefox is on v41. The last update they have for Firefox is v39--two releases ago! What good is this program if it doesn't do what it purports to do? After about two weeks of waiting for support last time, they gave me a work around where I could jump through about 20 hoops to delete my data for Chrome, but they advised me "this wouldn't be a secure deletion."

This used to be a great program. Now it's completely useless. Save your money.


A shadow of its former self. You can't rely on Cyber Scrub anymore.

"Cyberscrub Privacy Suite is not worth the trouble!"

When it works, it erases data completely. I have tested it with Recuva and Encase. Data is unrecoverable!


1. Erasing privacy data and recycle bin and then shutdown the computer is now possible, you have to wait for one of the tasks and then run the other.
2. You cannot just start Cyberscrub Privacy Suite and rely on the program to run without problems. It sometimes stop, because of errors.
3. Support is really not very nice and comes up with solutions that does not work.
4. The Privacy Suite should keep working after the subscription expires, but it does not. Support gave me this solution: Buy a new subscription.


All in all after having trouble with Cyberscrub Privacy Suite many times over 1.5 years, I recommend you to buy some other privacy software.

"Outstanding Solution Tool! *Highly Recommend*"

I have to say that this is by far the best product that I've used when deleting anything beyond recovery and it's very simple to navigate too. I haven't been able to trust any other product until I cam across CyberScrub but I do highly recommend this tool if any when dealing with your security and privacy.


I have yet to be disappointed, great technology.


I also noticed that they've added some features to this product that I might have to look more into myself but here's the website if anyone wants to explore it
