Save your usernames, passwords and contact and credit card information in one of these convenient and secure programs with automatic form entry. Your private data are saved in strongly encrypted files.
Believe it or not, Windows, Mac OS, BSD and GNU/Linux don't actually remove files and Internet tracks when you delete them or format your hard drive. Use one of the following data erasing programs to securely erase private and unwanted data from your hard drive and other digital media.
Note: The swap or page file, a large memory file, may contain sensitive private data. Set your privacy program to clear it at shutdown, if it has that feature. skip
If you use Windows and don't know much about computers, use one of these secure erasers.
If you're familiar with Windows' folder directory, and want to do a thorough cleanup for free, use Eraser.
A phishing site detection plugin for your browser helps you investigate a site as a way to significantly reduce, if not avoid, the chance of having your private data stolen by phishing scams.
If you use Internet Explorer, download and install a phishing site detector to help keep your web account passwords safe. If you use Firefox, make sure you use the lastest version and keep the built-in antiphishing feature enabled.
