Privacy Controls offers the following features and benefits:
 

  • Microsoft Windows 10 compatible: Privacy Controls works with the latest Microsoft operating system, Microsoft Windows 10 (32-bit and 64-bit).
     
  • Custom system scans: You can customize how Privacy Controls scans your system by selecting only the items you want to be scanned. There is a list of items on the Options page that you can check or clear before running a system scan.
     
  • Selection and removal: You can choose to fix all of the items Privacy Controls has detected after it completes a scan. You can also select only those you want fixed. When the results are displayed, you can clear the items that you do not want fixed.
     
  • Automatic scanning with the scheduling tool: With Privacy Controls you can create schedules so that a privacy scan is done automatically. Using the schedule feature you can set more than one schedule to run daily or weekly.
     
  • System performance: You can remove items that are created automatically and are temporarily cached on your system. This frees up space on your hard drive and improves computer performance.
     
  • Wide range of coverage: ParetoLogic Privacy Controls performs a scan and remove process using an extensive list of system and application categories. Each category has a set of items you can configure to be scanned. ParetoLogic is dedicated to broadening this coverage and passing on free updates.
     
  • Easy selection and removal: You can customize the scanning process by selecting which items ParetoLogic Privacy Controls scans. You can choose which items you want to erase after the scan is complete. With the click of a button, all the items are erased quickly and easily. 
     
  • Preview of images: Getting a preview is a good way to visually verify what you are about to delete. During the scan a preview of detected images is displayed. When the scan is complete you can expand the list of detected items and place your mouse cursor over an item to see a preview of the item that is about to be deleted.
     
  • Permanently shred files: You can select items or drag-and-drop files to the Advanced Shred page and choose the level of overwriting that fits your needs. The Shred levels include Quick, Safe, and Thorough. The Quick level uses a single random overwrite pass. The Safe level makes use of overwrite technology that adheres to DoD 5220-22M specifications (the standard for permanent erasure of digital information as set by the U.S. Department of Defense). The Thorough level uses the same DoD specification and includes an extra four overwrite passes.
     
  • Safeguards: Permanently shredding files requires caution. ParetoLogic Privacy Controls uses safeguards to assist you in verifying the items you select are, in fact, unwanted.
     
  • Automatic updates: Privacy Controls will automatically update when one is available so you never have to wonder whether or not your software is up-to-date.
