Editors' review

Although we can't call FreeToGo a full-blown privacy suite, it takes an interesting approach to wiping away your Web traces. The application can be configured to run both in your system tray and in your Web browser toolbar, so it's always accessible. FreeToGo's innovation is it can selectively wipe away your Net tracks when you enable it. For example, if you're visiting sites to transmit your credit-card number or other personal info, you can simply flip the program's switch to its on position. When you're finished with your private business, you disable the app, and it will automatically delete cached files, temporary files, cookies, and typed URLs for that particular session, while leaving your earlier surfing history intact. If you like, you even can set the program to securely erase all files. FreeToGo also clears your PC's Run menu, Google toolbar history, and Windows Media Player files, but it doesn't support nearly as many third-party apps as competing utilities. Still, folks who crave flexibility when they cover their Web tracks will appreciate this application.

    "The trial version seems to work O.K. and is a useful tool."

    May 26, 2006   |   By Geoff The Brewer

    Version: FreeToGo 3

    Pros

    The trial version on my laptop at home appears to work O.K. The trial version at my business address works as well but unfortunately the software does not display properly as unlike my version at home, I cannot access the tools etc. I thought I would purchase because the programme really is a piece of cake to use.

    Cons

    The big problem at the time of writing this is, although I purchased the product at my business address 2 days ago and the automated information sheet said that I would receive an email licence very shortly, I am still waiting, even after two email communications to the freetogo software company,and they have not the decency to acknowledge my emails, even if they are automated.

    My credit card company confirms that the cash has been taken out of my account.

    Just like to warn anyone, is this company genuine or are they ripping us off?

    Am I being unreasonable after waiting 2 days, most other U.S.A. companies have always dealt with me reputable.
