Frequently Asked Questions - CyberScrub Privacy Suite
- Why do I need Privacy Suite?
For three reasons:
One, you need to feel secure and confident that once you have deleted information, it's GONE. Without a secure file deletion utility your confidential information can be easily retrieved.
Second, your Internet activity is an open book. Small files are placed on your computer, "cookies" that track your movements and create user profiles. If you view photos on the web or in newsgroup they remain on your hard drive. E-mail you "trashed" can be reconstructed with little effort. Your chat room conversations may provide an opportunity for embarassment. Privacy Suite deletes your discarded files beyond recovery and eliminates evidence of your Internet activity.
Finally, this fine utility provides strong encryption to secure your sensitive data from unauthorized discovery.
- Why is Privacy Suite labeled version 4.0? Isn't this a new product?
Privacy Suite has formerly been known simply as CyberScrub Professional, Standard or Basic. As our product line grows there exists the potential for confusion with the name of a product and company being the same. We felt this was a godd time to rename our flagship offering to clearly identify its benefits.
- Can Privacy Suite be run under multiple user accounts?
Privacy Suite removes the sensitive information (Temporary Internet Files, Cookies, etc.) from the user account in which it was run. To clean sensitive information from other users, you need to switch to another user and run Privacy Suite from that user. Privacy Suite has been designed to allow you to run it from another user without having to install it under each individual user (just run its executable file). Once loaded on a differnt user, it will automatically detect the correct paths for that user, so you won't need to re-configure anything.
If you want to clean sensitive information from other users (without switching the user account), there is also an option to do this: just add their corresponding folders to the Custom Areas of Privacy Guard and they will be erased each time your run it. The only condition is that you have access to delete the files from other users (if you are administrator, you should be able to do this).
- Does Privacy Suite eliminate my Peer2Peer activity?
Yes, Privacy Suite rids your computer of evidence from 22 popular P2P applications including Kazaa, iMesh, Morpheus, etc...
- Can I use the Internet Privacy Guard with Netscape Navigator, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, AOL or MSN?
Yes, It's new version.
- Which wipe method should I use?
your disks are likely to be investigated with hardware recovery tools, you should use one of the following wipe methods: Stop Hardware Recovery(DoD), 3+7+3 Beyond DoD Standards or Stop Hardware Recovery (Gutmann). These methods are very secure, they can stop both software and hardware recovery tools, but they are very slow. If you only want to stop software recovery tools, you should use Stop Software Recovery Tools or the three Quick Wiping wipe methods. They are less secure than the Stop Hardware Recovery methods, but much faster.
