Editors' Review

+

With hackers monitoring passwords, cookies, and browsing, users need all the protection they can get. Wipe claims to offer that protection in such an easy manner anyone can use it.

This freeware advertises its ease and does not disappoint. We have tested several programs that perform the same task and have never used one as simplified as Wipe. The download consists of a screen listing hundreds of programs that may contain personal data you do not want to share. From Windows XP to temporary Internet files, each is displayed with the number of files and the amount of space each takes. Users have the opportunity to deselect a program if they do not wish it wiped, but beyond that there is not much flexibility.

Clicking the "Delete!" button takes users to a friendly screen displaying the program icon that is being cleaned, along with a rapidly changing list of what specific file is being deleted, a tally of the files and space being cleared, and a graph letting users know how much longer they must wait.

Wipe may be frustrating for computer experts looking for a customizable security option, since it keeps things so simple that users are given few choices or settings to change. However, its simplicity is a benefit, as it makes Wipe an effective and simple option for users of all experience levels. We highly recommend this download for anyone looking to enhance security.

"Very quick, always updated"

March 13, 2014  |  By usaprykin

 |  Version: Wipe 2014

Pros

I like that with every new release of Chrome or FireFox WIPE keeps updating itself via automatic update. Thus, it always recognize installed programs correctly and clean them. As any other cleaner it is very good in cleanup, have all security algorithms.

Cons

Design of the program is not superb

Summary

To get main goal - clean garbage and personal tracks WIPE is the best, I think. But as for design. Design not very good.

"A Disaster: Avoid like the plague."

February 15, 2012  |  By diowrite

 |  Version: Wipe 2012.03

Pros

Generally, this program is a good idea.

Cons

No research was done to prevent errors or its effect on IE 8.
I had a RUNDLL error involving InetCpl.cpl that nearly drove me crazy. It was Wipe 2012 that was causing the error.
Thanks for delaying a project and annoying me with poor development.
InetCpl.cpl was there but Wipe said it was not. I deleted Wipe and went with Intelligent Software.

Summary

I give this program 1 star out of 10. Good idea but what a piece of JUNK. Stupid Russians Twits. Technically incompetent.

"There are better cleaners"

May 02, 2011  |  By purigen

 |  Version: Wipe 2011.06

Pros

It's free and easy to use

Cons

The default settings don't clean out all the junk and if you make changes on what to clean you need to be experienced

Summary

It's an OK free cleaner but spend the money and get a good cleaner like Mil Shield

"Not a "Free" Product as advertised"

March 13, 2011  |  By wwgorman

 |  Version: Wipe 2011.05

Pros

Didn't get past the screen that requested the "donation" so I have nothing to say pro or con but probably wouldn't have downloaded the program if I knew it was to be paid for.

Cons

Can't get by the "donation" screen to use the product except "for payy."

Summary

A purchase product.
