Editors' Review

If you share a computer, you can rest assured that someone has looked over your browser's history for salacious details. PrivaZer protects your privacy by cleaning that up, but it doesn't stop there. It does a thorough cleaning of everything you do on your computer, so no one can use it against you.

PrivaZer can be installed on your computer, but if you want to take the program with you, it offers an executable version you can slip on a portable drive, too. Regardless of how you run it, the first time you use the program it takes a long time to set up. You have to click through more than a half-dozen screens to actually get to the cleaning. Luckily, PrivaZer can save your settings so you only have to make the choices once. To make up for the long wait, the program does wipe any trace of what you've done with your computer. It goes from obvious places that could hide secrets, like your browser history or cookies, to places no one would ever think to look, like your Microsoft game history and older versions of Windows. For those who don't know what's safe to delete and what isn't, it offers a guided deletion process that will help.

Though you could probably delete most of these traces yourself, it would take hours. PrivaZer does it all at once and just as fast as any other registry cleaning software. It will even give your computer a noticeable speed boost in addition to protecting your privacy. If several people share your computer, there's no reason to not use this program to clean things up.

"Very questionable"

May 06, 2015  |  By NorCal Native

 |  Version: PrivaZer 2.25

Pros

Very promising features.

Cons

I've considered Privazer, but had to decline installation since they are completely non-transparent about who & what they are. Their "corporate address" is fake (it's for an incorporation mill in Delaware), and they are not forthcoming about their background. I'm very surprised so many people have either overlooked or ignored this fact, that no one really knows who Privazer's distributor "Goversoft LLC" is and who or what is funding them.

"Very impressive"

May 03, 2015  |  By bbcomp

 |  Version: PrivaZer 2.25

Pros

-Really cleans privacy, leaves nothing. Ccleaner is meant for freeing up space more than privacy, whereas this is meant for privacy (but in doing so, seems to free more space as well). This is a must have on a shared computer!

-Improves computer functioning. Although you mainly think of it as a privacy tool, it does dramatically improve functioning.

-The registry cleaner alone works well. I have a Kerish Doctor trial, which will show registry errors but not correct them. So I ran this and checked again with Kerish Doctor and only 20 are left (there were 120). So far, its registry cleaning functionality seems safe...but be careful of course.

Cons

-The interface is a little cluttered/confusing, but nothing you can't get past.
-Hard to say its safety for registry cleaning and optimization- I have not had a problem, but it doesn't have the popularity and track record of something like ccleaner, which has a very safe registry cleaning function..
-Not sure about how to deal with its logs/back-ups in terms of privacy- if it says what it deleted, then on a really public computer this may defeat the purpose...the next user can just restore your bank password. There are ways to turn this off, but just be aware of the privacy versus safety balance.

Summary

I would highly recommend, for privacy I don't think there is anything that could touch it. It also really improves system functioning!!
