SecureMac Releases PrivacyScan 1.8

Posted on October 7, 2015

Las Vegas, Nevada – SecureMac is proud to announce the new release of PrivacyScan 1.8, offering privacy protection for Mac users. The latest version of the critically acclaimed personal privacy application is designed specifically for Mac OS X 10.11 El Capitan, updating features to securely wipe digital footprints left after using the computer and accessing the Internet. In this latest release, PrivacyScan is optimized for Apple’s latest operating system offering up-to-date cleaning protection for the latest apps.

“Apple is increasingly becoming a target for hackers. The idea that an operating system is secure and has had a long standing record of advertising so makes it all the more tempting for a hacker. As El Capitan adds additional security features, PrivacyScan stands by it, increasing privacy for Mac users,” says SecureMac president, Nicholas Raba.

How does PrivacyScan work?
PrivacyScan acts like a digital private eye, identifying hidden threats that can compromise privacy when accessed by advertisers or snoopers trying to see user activity. It removes the internet clutter that accumulates in cache and history files while browsing the web. PrivacyScan covers the user’s digital tracks and saves valuable hard drive space by eliminating traces of which apps and files have been recently visited.

What’s New in PrivacyScan 1.8
The new version features the following updates and improvements. A full list of features and capabilities can be found here.
