AP DOES NOT REMOVE ANY FILES, shows ZERO BITES CONTINUALLY
I purchased this ap (Privacy Protector) for my late 2013 Mac when it (my Mac) was brand new. For a while Privacy Protector removed files, yet for the past several months (over 8 months to be exact), it consistently shows that files have been removed, when in fact they have not been (when I open the program it immediately shows 0 for all files needed to be removed. In the interim, I had purchased several other file removal and memory clean applications from the AP store andthey all consistently showed many files that needed to be removed, while at the same time that the Privacy Protector program showed 0 files to be removed.
I also purchased the Disk Doctor by Flip Lab (same company) which does show files to be removed simultaneously with Privacy Protector showing 0 files to be removed.
Finally, I purchased Privacy Scan, Disk Diag,Memory Clean and Memory monitor from the AP Store, all at the same time, to be sure to have back ups in the event that one program failed to work. All of the other programs that I purchased from the AP Store work as promised, except for this one (Privacy Protector). Since i have paid for this program, it just sits dormant on the desktop and every now and then, I test to see if it will perform.
It contintually shows 0 files to be removed. I feel as if I have been duped into making a purchase after the free issue (which worked so well) consistently requested me to upgrade to the purchase version for $4.99. I regret having to do so. it is like having a product for 30 days and after the trial period is over, and the purchase is made, the product stops working as intended. Not good at all. There should be a time frame that when a creator does a program and it stops working as intended, then when enough complaints come in, the developer should be made to refund the monies back to the consumer or user of the application. I do know that until the developer fixes this issued, I will not purchase anymore of the products.
As of 12/6/2016, I removed the application to the trash can on my Mac. If in the event that the program works in the future, I may reinstall it from my purchaes in the AP Store.
Does Not Perform As Advertised
I purchased this app and ran it here on a late-2013 iMac running the most current version of El Capitan as of this writing. It did not remove everything it claimed to and falsely reported zero bytes of data in places where that was not correct. I verified this. So, based on a similar comment from another reviewer here I downloaded a free trial of another app also available here on the Mac App Store and tested if it would remove the items that Privacy Protector failed to remove. The app PrivacyScan did this successfully and also removed more items this app does not even attempt. There is no excuse for failing to properly QA software to ensure that it minimaly does what it is designed to do, thus my 1 star rating. I have removed it from my system and just requested a refund from the Mac App Store because this does not do what it advertises it will. I would recommend looking into other apps for this that work well such as the one I mention.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
