"A program that finally works!"

August 13, 2013  |  By antonyleonard007

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

For a long time, I was looking for a stand-alone program or an add-on that could actually stop malware pop-ups efficiently. My questions were finally answered by PrivDog, a software program that displays only safe ads promoted through adtrust media and keeps rogue advertisement out of the box.

It's very light on my computer's resources, easy to install and works like a charm!

PrivDog is for every user who cares about their privacy and wish they enjoyed faster performance. I do, so I use the application.

Cons

PrivDog do supports Firefox and Chrome including Comodo Dragon and Ice Dragon browsers which should be more than enough. But, adding Opera, Internet Explorer and Safari support will boost the
add-on's reach.

I was expecting a stand-alone software like program which can work on its own and run separately. It was tad disappointing to know, it isn't but I expect them to add this soon so that it doesn't rely on a web browser.

Summary

The browser add-on does everything as promised and more. It's fast, reliable and secure to use. Adtrust media ads are from reputed vendors and not spam links which are usually promoted by rogue websites.

I had a severe issue caused by a link that led me to a hacking website and compromised my data. Somehow, I managed to solve it unharmed and saved my data. PrivDog now assures me carefree browsing experience. Thanks to the think tank behind this program...

Pros

Works quick
Lightweight
Useful add-on

"Seamlessly integrates with my browser"

September 17, 2013  |  By dimjone

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

Works with Chrome & Firefox
Easy installation - no ambiguous steps
Protects PC
Malware ads are rejected instantly

Cons

Wish there are more features like in Paid Version

Summary

Excellent add-on to use. Integrates with my browsers seamlessly but yet to support other browsers apart from the ones mentioned above. Great freebie for anyone who feels their computer works too slow.

"My browser works faster than ever"

September 04, 2013  |  By cenaoliviya

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

Speeds up the browser
Programs are more responsive
No malware ads in sight
Installs in a jiffy
Free to use

Cons

Too simple with reports
OS support

Summary

It's easy to use and Privdog is more efficient than I expected. My browser is much more responsive and multiple tabs respond to my command. The add-on is being offered for free, so I can hardly complain about the lack of a detailed report. Maybe, a paid version might come in some time. Add detailed threat log and it's one of the best malware ad blocker around.

"Easy to use add-on"

September 04, 2013  |  By martinluthar

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

Easy to use
Simple interface
Blocks threats without mandatory user decision making
Compatible with major browsers

Cons

Not compatible with safari or IE

Summary

PrivDog is an easy to use add-on which readily works with firefox and chrome. I do agree that they are major browsers in modern times but they should add IE support soon. The program is lightweight and works seamlessly. No annoying popups or user decision making. It blocks threats on its own. Very good add-on and a must have for carefree browsing.

"Quick response"

August 30, 2013  |  By michealrichard2345

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

A safe way for both users and advertisers
Lightweight design
Works on both Chrome and Firefox
Easy install

Cons

So many threats displayed but no detailed information available

Summary

The good thing about PrivDog is, it installs within seconds and works seamlessly. Blends with the browser and starts blocking issues. The not so good thing is that nobody knows what is actually blocks but the browsing experience is smoother than ever.

So, one can confirm it is actually working and blocks some insane ads as well as popups which cause slowdown. A very good add-on to own for people who like protect themselves. I do, that's why I use this one.

"Reliable add-on"

August 29, 2013  |  By marinajacob

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

Adtrust team support
Blocks malware ads
Increases performance
Threats blocked are listed

Cons

Type of threats not revealed
User interface is missing

Summary

Maybe, not everyone reads a software developer's description but I came to know that this PrivDog is actually supported by Adtrust media team. The people check each and every advertisement before it is displayed. A valuable addition that helps users stay safe from malware ads and stopping such malicious links actually increases PC performance. Just the interface should be more intuitive and detailed.

"It's the first time I tried this. Looks good."

August 28, 2013  |  By monishaelliza

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

Quick install
Subtle operation
No messy alerts all the time
Useful
Reduced banner ads

Cons

Interface
Minimal Information
Missing virus log

Summary

First, I would like to clarify that I'm not a huge fan of add-ons or browser accessories. Sometimes, I don't even believe that antiviruses actually work. But, I tried this add-on seeing so many positive response. Surprising to see that this one works and managed to change my view about security tools.

Just add better interface and a detailed virus log. I will continue using this one and see when the developers will come up with a newer, better version.

"PrivDog values security"

August 28, 2013  |  By cruzjancy

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

Secures personal information
Stops data collection
Displays number of threats blocked
Gets rid of pesky pop-up ads

Cons

Supports Mozilla Firefox but doesn't work with Safari, Opera or new browser variants

Summary

Very light and efficient add-on program. PrivDog ensures that I don't keep sending my personal information to unidentified third parties. It displays a list of threats blocked when I browse but there's no detailed report. Developers should add it soon. Good program, nevertheless!

"It works!!"

August 23, 2013  |  By nancygilbert

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

Pros

An useful add-on
Works with Firefox
No need high PC specs
Good at blocking pop-ups
Secures privacy by blocking cookie and data collectio

Cons

Lack of Browser support

The add-on is useful, precisely blocks ads and very easy on system resources. Browsers load much faster, cookies are blocked to avoid data collection and reduces malware instances. Most of all, it's being offered for free, making it a must-have for every internet user.
