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:
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:
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.
