    "A program that finally works!"

    August 13, 2013  |   By antonyleonard007

    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...
