[prMac.com] Las Vegas, Nevada – As various legal debates regarding Internet consumer privacy rage on, SecureMac, the leading authority on Apple Macintosh security, has released the v1.3 update to its critically acclaimed PrivacyScan software. In addition to the usability updates (including new support for Opera 15 and Chromium), the software is now available directly from the PrivacyScan website as a 15-day free trial.
PrivacyScan works like a digital document shredder, identifying and eliminating hidden threats that may compromise privacy when accessed by advertisers or snoopers trying to see where someone has been surfing. It removes the internet clutter that accumulates in cache and history files while browsing the web. PrivacyScan eliminates traces of what files and apps were accessed on the computer, covering the user’s digital tracks behind them while saving valuable hard drive space.
In an interview, SecureMac’s CEO, Nicholas Raba stated: “These days people are taking their privacy more seriously than ever, especially when browsing the Internet and using computers. We’ve been in security for a long time and we’re proud to provide people with peace of mind that their privacy is not being compromised or violated.”
The new version features the following updates and improvements:
* Fixes a bug where some Download History information for Chrome was left behind after cleaning
* PrivacyScan now supports cleaning for Opera 15 (Chromium Engine)
* PrivacyScan now supports cleaning for Archived Browsing History for Chrome
* Includes user interface updates and improvements
Awards and Accolades:
Past awards and recognitions include Macworld | iWorld Best of Show by Macworld UK Magazine, A Mac Gem – Macworld GemFest 2012, Editor’s Choice Award – Macworld UK. PrivacyScan has received full 5-Star ratings from both Macworld UK and Macworld AU.
