Erase your tracks. MyPrivacy, a new free software from Omniquad is a privacy tool that helps you maintain your privacy by cleaning up all traces of your Internet and PC activities. It helps you erase data you may have entered like personal information in online forms, Urls in your browser address bar, files you searched for, etc. Data that otherwise would be exposed to other users of your computer. It also helps you clear the files from both the Temp & the Temporary Internet Explorer folders.
Preserve your privacy. Your Windows PC and Internet Explorer Browser have several helpful features that help make your computing experience easier. Windows lists the recently viewed files so that you can re access them easily. To make your Internet experience more hassle free, Internet Explorer prompts you with previously used entries while you fill a form online. It remembers previously visited websites and displays them all on a drop down menu each time you try to type something new in the address bar.
But the price you pay for these features is a lack of privacy. Anybody who has access to your computer can pry into what you were doing both on your system and online. The documents you worked on, the images you viewed, the applications you used, the websites you visited, even the files or text you searched for ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢Â‚Â¬Ã‚Â¦ all these details are exposed for any one interested enough.
Clean up your act. MyPrivacy lets you do routine tasks to maintain your privacy like cleaning up the AutoComplete & IE histories, deleting Temp & temporary internet files, managing cookies, clearing the lists of recently used files, etc from one location. You can use this to clear up the Windows Run, Find Files, Search Text, Media Player Recent File and URL list menus. In addition it lets you disable AutoComplete & AutoSuggest options. There is an option to configure the Windows Media Player not to display the list of recently accessed files.
