How to Securely Erase Private Data

Contents

Crucial Steps You Need To Take Before Typical After-Work Erasing With Eraser

CAUTION: Reading the following steps carelessly could cause you to disable your system and / or lose data you want to keep. So be sure to read them carefully.

Previous Step: Encrypt Windows or Move Private Data to Read-Only or Encrypted Removable Media

Switch to Safer Hardware and Software

To minimize the risks to your privacy, I recommend switching to safer, alternative browser and e-mail programs or better yet, portable versions stored on an encrypted removable medium that leave your sensitive data significantly more private and secure than Internet Explorer, Outlook Express and Outlook do, which is especially important when using a laptop / notebook, PDA, smartphone or public computer.

And use one or more of these or the following software and web-based services for anonymous searches or Web surfing, to prevent profiling and the resulting risk of misuse or theft of your private data.

Then, use one of the two options I recommend for virtually worry-free computing and sufficiently secure, private browsing.

Or at least use antimalware and antiadware to help keep your data private. And download updates for them often.

Note: As I said in section 2, using those software programs and updates isn't necessary if you choose one of the options I recommend.

Hardware and Software Focused on or Configured for Privacy
