Editors' Review

PrivApp hides and displays up to 10 program windows, although its lock feature often fails. Helpfully, the program immediately loads the Readme file on first run. That helps novice users see the specific hotkey commands for hiding, unhiding, and locking program windows on the desktop. The hiding and unhiding process is fast and effective. PrivApp even hides desktop icons. However, the unhiding process follows a last-in, first-out logic so that the last window hidden is the first to redisplay. We wish multiple hotkeys could enable specific window redisplay. PrivApp's password-protected lock feature failed to disable the hotkeys in our tests. In addition to that downside, this demoware has a five-day trial limitation and hides a maximum of 10 windows. Most users will wish for a longer test period. When it works, this application is helpful for the privacy minded, but many will find PrivApp insufficient for the task.
