1.2.2 (See all)

Incinerator is an application that provides you with a solution when you remove sensitive data from your computer. By working with this program, you can make sure that other users won't be able to restore deleted files, folders or apps from your Mac and access the confidential data that they contain.

The app practically makes files unreadable by writing over every byte, this way making it impossible for unauthorized users to recover and open the deleted file. After it "incinerates" all input files, folders or apps, it permanently removes them from your hard drive.

A good aspect is that it can also overwrite data within Trash app and delete all its contents within moments.

The thing that bothers me while working with this program is that it opens separate windows when selecting more than one file for processing. Hence, you need to configure incineration settings for every loaded file, a task which might take you a while to complete.

To conclude, Incinerator is a helpful program that helps you securely erase files, folders, and apps from your Mac. The tool is simple to configure, immediately processes the selected files, and comes with no price.
