[prMac.com] Las Vegas, Nevada - SecureMac has released a new version of their award winning privacy app PrivacyScan 1.6, the latest in privacy protection for Macs. It is available for download immediately from the Mac App Store and has a demo available at the SecureMac website. The latest version of the personal privacy application is designed specifically for Mac OS X, adding features to securely wipe digital footprints left after using the computer and accessing the Internet. In this latest release, PrivacyScan adds improved compatibility with future versions of Mac OS X and also adds additional Firefox web browser support and fixes.
With the recent iCloud celebrity hacking scandal in the news, now is a good time for users to think about the privacy on their computers. Most people don't realize what's happening underneath the sleek Mac OS X interface and what traces may be left behind.
How does PrivacyScan work?
PrivacyScan acts like a digital private eye, identifying hidden threats that can compromise privacy when accessed by advertisers or snoopers trying to see user activity. It removes the internet clutter that accumulates in cache and history files while browsing the web. PrivacyScan covers the user's digital tracks and saves valuable hard drive space by eliminating traces of which apps and files have been accessed.
Where can users get PrivacyScan and a free trial?
PrivacyScan 1.6 is available for $14.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and is available worldwide through the Mac App Store in the Utilities category or directly from SecureMac.com. SecureMac offers a free 15-day fully functional demo available directly from the PrivacyScan website. Existing PrivacyScan users can upgrade to the latest version free of charge.
