I Love my iMac - Privacy Scan does what it advertises to do…More. I wish I had found this product sooner. I use it everytime I am on the Web. I have told several people about it, they also think its Great also, you will too. I can’t rate it high enough. It takes all of the other stuff off of your computer that you did not know the web sites were putting on your computer while you were on their site. First time I used Privacy Scan, it cleaned over 1 GB of unwanted material off my hard drive. What else can I say?
Do not waste your money - Many apps can do what this app does for free.

Finally……an App that does exactly what it says - These days you cant seem to buy anything thats works like advertised, much less work at all. So much garbage in the “app store”. Ever since I bought this app, it has worked perfectly. No problems at ALL…….That being said, 5 stars hands down. It does what it says, and customer / tech support is there if you need it. Thank You for a job well done. CD
Fantastic tool - Great program! Works very well.
Simply the best - None better!
Cookie Removal - Safari and ElCapitan on an iMac. I started to get cookies that would repopulate after clearing website data in Preferences. The cookies would come back immediately without me revisiting the website. Two of the cookies were rei.com and abt.com, underneath them was the word database. This program deleted the cookies and they did not return. Safari appears to be running fine at this point.
So simple to use - App is simple to use. Gets the job done quickly and smoothly.
