    "Needs work it can't remember settings"

    December 04, 2013   |   By ARREB

    Version: PrivDog 1.8.0.17

    Pros

    It does a good job.

    Cons

    It can not remember its own settings. Seems all the time it wants to do something to the computer even when not online multiple times a day and we have to click yes.

    Summary

    Its a work in progress. When they can stop it always annoying users every hour for something it would be great.
    Until this problem is fixed i do not recommend it for anyone unless you like to constantly keep giving it permission to do things.
    Once this problem is fixed it will be worth 5 stars.

    "Privacy Enhanced"

    December 03, 2013   |   By paulwalker685

    Version: PrivDog 1.8.0.17

    Pros

    Junk ad removal
    Browser support
    Unwanted downloads are blocked
    Quick installation
    Free
    Privacy tool

    Cons

    Nothing at all, in my opinion

    Summary

    The product is fully compatible with two major browsers, Chrome and Firefox. Besides, it also works with browsers from a security company Comodo. I have been using Comodo Ice Dragon for some time and it enhances privacy besides being secure to use. I get safety and secure access without malware trouble. PrivDog is my privacy companion now.

    "Blazing fast internet"

    December 03, 2013   |   By davidwarner717

    Version: PrivDog 1.8.0.17

    Pros

    Made my internet extremely quick
    Removed programs that wasted bandwidth
    Quick installation
    Free to use

    Cons

    Comprehensive details not available
    Virus detection rate is low

    Summary

    Privdog is a new software program I came across on Cnet. Ever since I downloaded it, it's extremely useful and made my internet blazing fast. It got rid of clutters and ads that used excessive bandwidth without reason. If the developers could add in more detailed reports and virus detection capability, it will become the ultimate tool.
