Users who know little about privacy sweep often misread its meaning. A friend of mine once found this option in his anti-virus software and uninstalled it, saying that he wouldn’t keep a software in his PC which peeks into his privacy. I burst out with laugh and told him what privacy sweep really means.
Privacy sweep, to the very opposite, is used to protect our internet privacy rather than intrude it. Let me make an example to explain how privacy sweep works out. When we browse webpage or visit some specific website, our history record or so-called internet trace will be stored into our system as temporary files. Still, some private information will also remain in the registry as we constantly engage in internet activities. Sometimes, such information like banking account or password can be crucial to us. It is because if we leave it unhandled, various security threats like viruses, Trojans, spywares may get it and put our financial security at peril. And it is for this consideration that privacy sweep serves for. When you click this option, it will completely eradicate the privacy traces remained in your computer system, and thus free your PC of any potential security compromise.
Actually, lots of anti-virus software and computer system care software are offering this option because you could never say that your system is 100% free of Trojans and spywares. Advanced SystemCare PRO 4, I believe, worth my note in terms of privacy sweep. As both a fabulous disk cleaner and registry cleaner, it detects all the remaining traces of user privacy in the hard disk and registry and completely removes them. It is no exaggeration in that its scanning performance is credited by most of its users. Its scanning is quick yet in-depth and through, capable of detecting all kinds of junk files in the system. Besides, its removal effectiveness is also remarkable, enabling it remove even the most stubborn junk files of uninstalled programs. In all, its computer cleanup is so complete that you don’t have to worry your privacy may be exposed to hackers and other internet threats.
Now you must have realized that privacy sweep directs at the unprotected private records left in your hard disks and registry. This option only works to make our system more secured. I will doubt the reliability of a computer system care software if it is without such an option.
