Protect your privacy with WIPE

Most people are aware of the fact that their web browser stores a huge amount of information about online activity, and if this should fall into the wrong hands there could be untold consequences. But it is not just web browsers that track activities - the same is true of a huge number of programs as well as Windows itself.

WIPE is a privacy tool that can be used to ensure that no revealing information about computer activity is left on your hard drive. As well as clearing your browsing history and cookies, the program will also delete auto-complete entries, clean index.dat files and remove temporary internet files.

But it doesn't end there. WIPE will also clear the clipboard and the list of recently used files maintained by Windows. To hide information about pictures that have been viewed, thumbs.db files can be deleted as RSS logs can be cleared as well as countless other program logs.

There is built in support for a wide variety of programs from web browsers and media players to office tools and instant messaging clients. There are a number of wiping methods to choose from which help to ensure that any data that is deleted cannot be recovered - including Gutmann standard which overwrites data 39 times. If you want to protect your privacy, WIPE is the tool for you.

WIPE 16.05 adds support for these apps:

• This is very important update because it supports new versions of all major browsers which all people have installed.
• Added support for browser FireFox 46 (current version) and 47 (future version).
• Added support for browser Chrome 51 (future version).
• Added support for browser Opera 38 (future version).
• Added support for browser Yandex 16.4.
• Added support for browser IceDragon 45.
• Added support for browser SlimJet 9.
• Added support for new browser Vivaldi 1. This browser was added per customer's request. It is a new browser and very interesting, based on Chrome core.
• Date of release: 7 May 2016.

Verdict:

WIPE makes it easy to protect your privacy and support for such a large number of programs helps to simplify the process of clearing activity logs beyond recovery.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.16.4

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.
