"Whenever you surf the internet little bits of information about you and your browsing habits are collected. If you are worried about just how much information is being gathered, you can address your concerns with PrivacyScan."
SecureMac debuted PrivacyScan at Macworld | iWorld in San Francisco on January 26th 2012.
