SecureMac Kicks Off Digital Spring Cleaning Season with PrivacyScan 1.9.3 Release

Posted on April 6, 2017

Las Vegas, Nevada, April 6, 2017 — Spring is here, and that means spring cleaning for many. To aid users in controlling their digital footprint and managing disk space, SecureMac has announced its newest update to PrivacyScan with version 1.9.3. This update to the award-winning application, designed to safeguard user privacy, delivers priority bug fixes along with several other improvements. User interface refinements yield simple and efficient operation easy for both beginners and advanced users. PrivacyScan 1.9.3 also provides enhanced cleaning for Google Chrome users, securely and efficiently removing private browsing data from Chrome permanently.

Spring cleaning with PrivacyScan

Spring is an ideal time to clean your computer of unnecessary data and accumulated privacy risks. Web browsers generate large amounts of information, including cookies that can contain unique identifiers for users. In addition, cache files can accumulate over years, storing copies of your browsing history , slowing computers down and consuming valuable hard drive space. Quickly eliminating this “digital clutter” should be a part of every user’s spring cleaning to-do list.

To aid in this effort, PrivacyScan inspects user machines to detect private browsing information generated by major web browsers, like Safari, Chrome, and Firefox. Once detected, it uses a rigorous cleaning method to destroy this data, including histories of visited sites, web searches, and advertiser-created tracking cookies. PrivacyScan meets and exceeds the United States Department of Defense’s standards for data removal, ensuring it is impossible to recover.

Version 1.9.3 of PrivacyScan is now available for purchase and download on the Mac App Store for $14.99 USD. Existing PrivacyScan users will receive 1.9.3 as a free update. For new users, SecureMac offers a free 15-day demo version to allow users to try its robust functionality before buying. This demo is available as a free download on the PrivacyScan website,, and is feature-complete and identical to the full version. This spring, de-clutter your hard disk and protect sensitive information with the enhanced functionality of PrivacyScan.
