Editors' Review

+
While not a full-blown suite of privacy-protection tools, IE Privacy Keeper provides more functionality than we usually expect from a piece of freeware. The program's tabbed interface isn't pretty, but it does logically arrange all of the cleaning implements. This application can not only get rid of your Internet Explorer traces, but it also can zap your surfing history from Firefox. You can choose to keep any cookies, URLs, or temporary files by adding them to a whitelist. IE Privacy Keeper also wipes away traces from certain Windows system areas such as the Run menu and the Clipboard. It supports a few third-party apps such as popular media players and MS Office programs, but the list is definitely quite small. You'll also find a feature that can delete any selected folder on your machine, but it doesn't use secure algorithms to eradicate data. And in lieu of a true scheduler, this utility only can automatically perform cleaning sessions on select occasions, such as after system start-up. In spite of its shortcomings, we still think this freebie makes a decent pick for privacy-concerned folks on a budget.

"Simple, Seamless - Automatic"

October 31, 2007  |  By king_spadez

 |  Version: IE Privacy Keeper 2.7

Pros

Sets up easily in minutes. A few basic entries for cleanup 'triggers' and how you want the log window to appear. Has a section for you to add paths (optional) for it to delete files from.

The program starts up in the background automaticly, does its job when a 'trigger' that you select happens and then disappears awaiting the next 'trigger'.

"Don't trust it!"

March 01, 2007  |  By bigman270

 |  Version: IE Privacy Keeper 2.7

Pros

Found none. Didn't have it long enough to discover any.

Cons

This program took over my entire desktop and wouldn't permit a normal startup. I had to uninstall it by going into safemode to get at it before it did any more harm. Use at your own risk!

I have used various other programs with trial periods and this has just the features I need and it is free. I especially like the customization per user account.
