With PrivacyScan, you can rest assured that your tracks remain covered, your private information remains private, and deleted items stay that way. The secure shredding offered within PrivacyScan goes above and beyond United States Department of Defense (DoD) deletion standards by overwriting files with up to 35 passes to ensure complete deletion of sensitive data.

PrivacyScan works with many media, Internet, and popular apps such as web browsers, to scan for potential privacy threats and offer removal options to help protect your privacy and cleanse your system to save disk space.

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

Easy to use

I’ve been using Privacy Scan for several years now and I believe it s cleaning my files as described. What I don’t know is if they are tracking all traffic. I’m trusting they are doing the job and and can say I haven’t had any encounters that I’m aware of. It’s ashame the world has made people so sceptical about everything.


I use this program to keep my computer files clean of cookies and other nonsense. I have use this program for quite some time ( at least 15 years).
