"Amazing ad blocker"

November 15, 2013  |  By warnerleo638

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.7.0.12

Pros

Very lightweight and my PC never slows down
Blocks variety of ads and pop ups
Useful against malware prevention

Cons

Not much. More improvisation will roll in with updates.

Summary

Useful PrivDog stops unwanted ads and pop ups. The program installs within seconds and has a strong defensive mechanism against junk content. Use it and you will definitely witness faster computers as I did.

"No tracking malware in it!"

November 15, 2013  |  By michealhook22

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.7.0.12

Pros

No way there's tracking malware in it as suggested.

Earlier, I was not sure if I should install seeing one such comment but I guess it was completely misleading. As all other positive comments suggested, this is a great privacy tool and very useful at it.

Cons

Maybe, browser support is the only thing I could find. But, it can be fixed anytime.

Summary

PrivDog is completely safe to use and no way it's a malware. I don't know why people would spread wrong comments and mislead on benefits of using such a relia

"May work but it puts tracking malware on your computer"

November 12, 2013  |  By scuba199

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.7.0.12

Pros

Don't know

Cons

Super anti spyware kept coming up with the malware "adtrustmedia.com - I would have it deleted then the next time I got on the internet it came up again and again.

Summary

They say it's so only trusted ads can be seen but it is a tracking tool too!

"Privdog is my privacy partner"

November 12, 2013  |  By preetyjames

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.7.0.12

Pros

Close to being a firewall tool
Amazing performance
Works with Mozilla like a charm
Runs in the background

Cons

Not much, except that Opera support is missing.

Summary

Privacy is now a big concern and I'm glad to be using Privdog which is more like my partner now. I like to stop others from seeing me everything that I do. Surveillance, you know what I meant. It blocks ads and stop cookies from saving my history. Excellent attempt!

"I am happy"

November 12, 2013  |  By steavemic

 |  Version: PrivDog 1.7.0.12

Pros

Simple
Blocks Ads
Very quick
Non-pc spec demanding

Cons

Browser support
Seems idle at times

Summary

Very good software and most of all, it's free to download. Efficient against blocking unwanted material but sometimes one can't guess whether it is working or not. Need more information on the virus blocked. The program is quick and lightweight on system resources.
