This new version of PrivacyScan adds enhancements to the user interface and experience, additionally including bug fixes.

PrivacyScan works by searching for known applications which leave files on your computer that could lead to privacy risks. PrivacyScan offers support for a wide range of programs, including popular web browsers such as Safari, Firefox, Chrome, Camino, Flock, iCab, OmniWeb, Opera, SeaMonkey, and Shiira, privacy threats presented by Flash Cookies, as well as standard apps such as Finder, Preview, and QuickTime. Once a scan has run its course and privacy threats have been detected, PrivacyScan offers a variety of choices for cleaning; from a standard quick delete to one of the many secure delete shredding options.
