Privacy Defender Editor's Review

Protecting your privacy online should be high priority to everyone. Without your say, your computer will always keep some kind of records or traces of what you do online – the things you view and the websites you access. This isn’t necessarily to cause you any problems, more so to help find what you’re looking for in the future a bit faster. However, sometimes there are reasons why one would want to remove traces of their online activities, or are just having a bit of a system cleanout. Privacy Defender is an application designed to help track down, identify and remove web browser privacy and history items from your system, to help protect your online browsing.

Privacy Defender is so unbelievably simple to use – anyone could use it! One great feature about it is that it supports four of today’s most modern browsers – Internet Explorer, Safari, Firefox and Chrome. Unfortunately no support yet for Opera however this is something I’d like to see in a later release. Privacy Defender is a modern looking application that takes on a grey and blue theme which fits in quite well with Windows 7. The main page will show you when you last performed a scan, and all you have to do to get started it click Start Scan.

Once you click Start Scan, you’re informed that your web browsers will need to be closed in order for Privacy Defender to access them. You can do this yourself or Privacy Defender can do this automatically for you. If you don’t want to be informed of this again, click the checkbox to not be reminded again in the future. Clicking “Start Scan” again will start the scan.

A nice animation on the left hand side of the window and fancy progress bar at the bottom will indicate to you that the scan is taking place, and a total number of the traces found will be displayed and updated as they are detected. Once the scan is finished, Privacy Defender will automatically advance onto the next page.

The different types of traces and data collated are categorised into different sections. If you don’t understand a particular Trace Type, you can simply click the question mark ‘?’ symbol on the right hand side of its title for a brief description of what it is. You can either select them all using the Select All button at the bottom, or select individual Trace Types to remove. Once ready, click Remove Traces.

When testing, Privacy Defender started to remove the different traces it detected on my system, however about half way through, Privacy Defender crashed. I restarted Privacy Defender and discovered that it had removed all of my data (as it detected none the second time round), therefore had done its job correctly. Maybe this was just an unfortunate crash, however I cannot be sure as there was no browsing data to remove the second time. Either way, once the process completed, you’ll be presented with a completion screen displaying how many items it had successfully removed.

On the whole, I’m very impressed with Privacy Defender – it’s incredibly easy to use and explains everyone as you work your way through the process. I’m not too put off by the crash, as it removed all the traces anyway. Overall, I’d rate it 4/5.
