"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.
