Privacy Guardian uses an advanced eraser to ensure all traces of your Internet and computer activities are permanently deleted and unrecoverable on your PC. Web browsers only provide partial privacy protection by allowing some temporary Internet files and cookies to be deleted, but they do not wash data out of all the hidden files, nor do they delete the data securely. Block access to your sensitive online data, device info, and habits. Protect your private life with Privacy Guardian.
What you do online isn’t private. Without PrivacyGuardian, companies and individuals can acquire enormous amounts of very specific information about you—your digital fingerprint—based on what you do on the internet, and much of this data can be used against you in various ways. Here are a few of them:
Ads Following You
Right into your email inbox. Why do ads for products you’ve just browsed follow you around the internet, appearing in banners and sidebars on the pages you visit? This technology that spies on your web browsing and shopping habits to place ads in front of you all too often also leads to harassing spam emails as well. This is unsettling and annoying, especially once you’ve made a purchase and are no longer interested in ads for the product.
If an online retailer obtains data indicating you are shopping from a computer located in a wealthy neighborhood, it could mark up the prices you see on its website. This deceitful practice is already being deployed by some airlines, hotels, and more.
Compromised Consumer Reputation
Imagine being denied credit because a company has secretly collected data that suggests you are an irresponsible shopper.
Your Data For Sale
Congress overturned F.C.C. rules requiring broadband providers to get your permission before collecting data on your online activities and selling it to advertisers. Without these restrictions, ISPs are sure to become even more aggressive with data collection.
