    "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.

    Pros

    Very agile

    "Good attempt"

    September 17, 2013  |   By robertparker763

    Version: PrivDog 1.1.0.78

    Pros

    Works quick
    Lightweight
    Useful add-on
    Browser support
    Speeds up internet experience

    Cons

    Browser compatibility with internet explorer and Opera
    Issues in reporting complete log

    Summary

    PrivDog is an excellent idea. Credits to the creators for coming up with this add-on that blocks unwanted ads and helps ad developers as well. As a consumer I enjoy fast browsing and when I propose ads, it reach the right audience without annoying or infecting them.

    "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 4, 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.
