Privatus is a utility that was created to help you protect your privacy while working on your Mac computer. With its help, you can erase your web browser data and prevent unauthorized users from checking which websites you visited, the information you offered online for purchasing a certain item, etc.

This program is compatible with various web browsers, features easy-to-configure settings, and uses minimum CPU resources while operating on your computer. What's more, it offers you a couple of useful instructions which come in handy if you're new to this type of Mac utilities.

Privatus automatically detects that web browsers that are being installed on your computer and displays their icons on its main window. Simply click the preferred icon, select the proper privacy protection options, and the program will automatically erase the indicated content once you shut down the browser in question.

My only problem with this tool is the fact that it lacks an option to schedule cleanups. For instance, a similar but more expensive program from the same developer enables you to choose when the selected data to be deleted from the browser's records (for example, at every 20 minutes).

So, it's up to you to decide based on your needs and budget which of the 2 utilities is the best for you. They both work well and immediately complete the given tasks.
