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.

Pros

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.

Cons

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 5.1.1.283.
