Auslogics BoostSpeed’s Protect Tab

You might be surprised how anyone who gets on your PC can easily access your credit card details, activity history (including visited websites, viewed videos, and online transactions), passwords, and other data you’d rather keep private.

We recommend removing all traces of your sensitive information, which are stored in various locations on your computer. It is wise to do this on a regular basis (daily or weekly, depending on how heavily you use your PC).

The Protect tab in Auslogics BoostSpeed 12 helps you discover all avenues through which your privacy can be compromised: to stop ads in Chrome or any other browser, to permanently remove adware from Windows 10 and to stop ads from popping up. It then runs a cleanup to prevent your personal information from falling into the wrong hands.

On the left side of the tab, you will find four areas that can be scanned for privacy traces:

  • Web browsers: Clear cookies that track your browsing habits.
  • Applications: Secure your login details, profile data, and activity history.
  • Adult websites: Clear traces of visits to adult websites on your computer. Even if you’ve never been on such sites intentionally, online ads and forced redirects could still happen.
  • System files: Clean up login details, profile data, and activity history.

Flip the toggle next to each option and then click the ‘Scan now’ button.

When the scan is complete, click the ‘Check details’ link on each option to review the information that was found. Unmark the checkbox for any item you wouldn’t want to delete to exclude it from the cleanup. When done, click the ‘Resolve all issues’ button.

For your convenience, BoostSpeed Pro lets you schedule automated scans to ensure that you stay protected at all times. Click the stop watch icon in the bottom-left corner of the program window. In the page that opens, select ‘Protect Tab Schedule’ from the pane on the left and mark the ‘Enable automatic maintenance’ checkbox.

You can then choose how often you want to run an automated scan and also set a time for it. Click OK when you’re done.

On the right side of the Protect tab, you’ll see links to some useful tools (Windows 10 Protector, Free Space Wiper, and File Shredder) that provide even more options to safeguard your confidential files and shield your private information. Click on each one to find out what they do and activate them.

Now, flip the toggle to enable Browser Protection. It secures your browser against unauthorized changes and protects your data every time you surf the web.

Click the gear icon beside the header to set up the tool. Doing so opens a new tab where you can select a default browser and enable the following options:

  • Home Page Advisor: Notifies you of unauthorized changes to your homepage address or search provider.
  • Active Browser AntiTracker (Available in Auslogics BoostSpeed Pro): Clears your data after every web browsing session.
  • DNS Protection (Available in Auslogics BoostSpeed Pro): Prevents DNS setting changes that are attempted without your authorization.

Browser Protection also enables you to check for updates for your default browser. But please keep in mind that cleaning the registry manually can put your PC at risk, so use Registry Cleaner to make this process safe and easy.

Auslogics BoostSpeed includes modules and wizards for just about any kind of tweak or optimization you can imagine..."

With this program you can maintain your PC at top speed with just a click of a button once a week." "To prevent system slowdown from happening, regular defragmentation of your disk and registry is recommended. You can defragment your disk with the built-in tool from Microsoft, however we recommend using the faster and more avdnaced version in Auslogics BoostSpeed." "Removing junk files manually can be a tedious process, but a nifty software from down under called Auslogics BoostSpeed can do it for you automatically. It will remove junk files and optimize the one-sit-fit-all Windows settings to your hardware. For additional speed boost it will fix registry errorrs and optimize your Internet settings." "Of all the optimisation tools I've tested over the past few years, I'm happy to write that Auslogics BoostSpeed is one of the most comprehensive and user friendly, ... I couldn't recommend it highly enough." "Speed up your slow computer and Internet with this Editor's Choice software." Learn more "BoostSpeed is an effective all-encompassing utility suite, combining some of Auslogics' popular freeware titles with services that they don't offer elsewhere... No doubt, BoostSpeed gives you your money's worth." Learn more "Another source of identity theft are files with sensitive information. Simply deleting them doesn't make them go for good. It's quite easy to "undelete" them and use in ways you probably will not be happy about. But if you delete a file, or a folder with Auslogics' File Shredder, you can be sure that they will be impossible to recover." "This meticulously written application is an ideal solution for anyone who wants to boost their computer for peak performance without costly hardware upgrades. BoostSpeed gives you a combination of 15 precision-engineered modules to clean-up and defragment your computer disks, fix registry errors and speed up internet connection." "Think of the best PC speedup suite you've tried. And then add more. More tools. More features. More depth, more extras, and more thought behind everything. That'll give you some idea of what to expect from this excellent program..." Learn more "All in one performance tool for your PC that is very easy to use." Learn more "Auslogics BoostSpeed will give you the ideal solution to keep your computer running smooth and fast." Learn more "Auslogics BoostSpeed can protect you from identity theft. Being a useful computer optimization tool, it also includes a number of very useful privacy and security applications. It offers advanced protection where anti-virus software can't help." "You can clean up, optimize and defragment your PC using Auslogics's OneButton Checkup. Tests showed an impressive performance improvement on a 4-year old laptop and its optimization techniques should work for a much newer computer, too." "This is a smart little program that novice users will find handy, and it does a good job of explaining itself and the various tweaks it offers."
