Privacy Control



Privacy Control is a part of eScan’s Protection feature. It protects your confidential information from theft by deleting all the temporary information stored on your computer. This module comes with the eScan Browser Cleanup feature, which allows you to use the Internet without leaving any history or residual data on your hard drive by erasing details of sites and Web pages you have accessed while browsing. This page provides you with options for configuring the module. There are two tabs – General and Advanced, which are as follows:

1. General

This tab helps you specify the unwanted files created by Web browsers or by other installed software that should be deleted.

You can configure the following settings.

  • Scheduler Options: You can set the scheduler to run at specific times and erase private information, such as your browsing history from your computer. The following settings are available in the Scheduler Options section.
  • Run at System Startup: It auto executes the Privacy Control module and performs the desired auto-erase functions when the computer starts up.
  • Run Everyday at: It auto-executes the Privacy Control module at specified times and performs the desired auto erase functions. You can specify the time within the hours and minutes boxes.
  • Auto Erase Options: The browser stores traceable information of the Web sites that you have visited in certain folders. This information can be viewed by others. eScan allows you to remove all traces of Web sites that you have visited. To do this, it auto detects the browsers that are installed on your computer. It then displays the traceable component and default path where the temporary data is stored on your computer. You can select the following options based on your requirements.
  • Clear Auto Complete Memory: Auto Complete Memory refers to the suggested matches that appear when you type text in the Address bar, the Run dialog box, or forms in Web pages. Hackers can use this information to monitor your surfing habits. When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears all this information from the computer.
  • Clear Last Run Menu: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears this information in the Run dialog box.
  • Clear Temporary Folders: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears files in the Temporary folder. This folder contains temporary files installed or saved by software. Clearing this folder creates space on the hard drive of the computer and boosts the performance of the computer.
  • Clear Last Find Computer: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the name of the computer for which you searched last.
  • Clear Browser Address Bar History: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the Web sites from the browser’s address bar history.
  • Clear Last Search Menu: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the name of the objects that you last searched for by using the Search Menu.
  • Clear Recent Documents: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the names of the objects found in Recent Documents.
  • Clear Files & Folders: When you select this check box, Privacy Control deletes selected Files and Folders. You should use this option with caution because it permanently deletes unwanted files and folders from the computer to free space on the computer.
  • Clear Open / Save Dialogbox History: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the links of all the opened and saved files.
  • Empty Recycle Bin: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the Recycle Bin. You should use this option with caution because it permanently clears the recycle bin.
  • Clear Cache: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the Temporary Internet Files.
  • Clear Cookies: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the Cookies stored by Web sites in the browser’s cache.
  • Clear Plugins: When you select this check box, Privacy Control removes the browser plug-in.
  • Clear ActiveX: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the ActiveX controls.
  • Clear History: When you select this check box, Privacy Control clears the history of all the Web sites that you have visited.
