PrivacyScan is a simple Mac utility that provides you with a quick way to find and erase privacy threats from your system. This application helps you prevent unauthorized users from tracking your online whereabouts or checking your your computer usage.

The Setup Assistant tool will help you easily configure the application. Every option is nicely explained, so you don't need much computer experience in order to configure the settings according to your requirements.

The program will help you find and remove cache files, browser history, cookies, and others. PrivacyScan works with various web browsers, immediately shreds your private documents, and helps you reclaim space on your hard drives.

The one aspect that bothers me is that you need to update the app in order to have access to its latest version. The download URL from the homepage of the developer is for a previous version of the program. However, it takes just a couple of moments to update the application.

To conclude, PrivacyScan proves to be a reliable solution for boosting your Mac security. It helps you prevent data loss, works perfectly, and is cheap.
