Keep your private information safe from hackers

Your computer stores a lot of information that you don't want hackers or other outsiders to get their hands on, like your passwords, auto-complete history, Internet usage data and more. In fact, almost everything on your computer, from your Web browser to the operating system itself, stores information about you and your computer habits.

That's the kind of stuff you don't want to fall into the wrong hands. All my loyal readers know that they should have up-to-date security software installed to stop hackers from using malware and other viruses to steal information off of their computers. But, it's always better to be safe than sorry.

That's why I recommend downloading this software that will scour your computer for hidden personal information and delete it. That way, hackers can steal data you didn't even know was there if they do break into your computer. As an added benefit, deleting that information can clear up a lot of space on your computer, too.

Don't worry about losing information you want to keep. You can control which programs the software searches through as it cleans up your computer.
