How to Protect Your Privacy Online

Here are the headlines in the some newspapers. Employees Fired For Surfing The Internet, Professor Arrested after The Hard Drive was Examined, Wife Finds Secret Internet Porn Sites On Husband's Computer...

Not that this post is to investigate into each of the individual cases or circumstances of the above matter but when we use Windows operating system, it actually stores every site we visit, every file we open, every person we e-mail. There is no such thing as privacy on the Internet unless you do something about it. Nevertheless there are some precautions you can take to ensure your online endeavors. Besides hiding your IP address, another way you can consider is use a new software that automatically erases "evidence" from your computer.

You can consider the Evidence-Blaster software (
http://www.evidence-blaster.com/) on your computer to remove porn as an example. You wouldn't want your kids or even your spouse to accidentally access these sites. There are many features to the Evidence- Blaster such as eliminate all your system cookies, zap all Windows temporary files, wipe out Outlook and Netscape e-mail histories and many more. You can also customize the program to launch in the start tray and run on demand, hide itself, and perform a full clean when you press certain keys among other features.
