Wipe 2020.19 / Wipe 2019 18.09 by PrivacyRoot

WIPE is a free, easy to use and powerful security tool. It allows you to protect your privacy by clearing browser history and cache, cleaning index.dat files, securely removing cookies.

It also safely deletes autocomplete history and temporary internet files and erases any other tracks that you leave behind after having used your pc.

WIPE removes all traces of your online and offline activities in Windows OS. Also in the most popular browsers (Google Chrome, Internet Explorer, Firefox, Opera) and in many of other, daily used software. Only the evidence of your activities, which is recorded and stored by your computer without your permission, is erased.

This data wiper incoporates US DoD 5220.22-M, Gutmann (full 39 steps) and Russian GOST algorithms to completely erase your personal and private data. That makes deleted usage tracks unrecoverable.

WIPE Features:

  • Complete solution to remove user tracks. WIPE clears user browsing history, cookies, index.dat files, cache, logs, temporary internet files, autocomplete search history, recent document list, recent keywords list in toolbars, cached thumbnails of viewed pictures, registry cache and many many other areas.
  • Clear tracks collected by Windows. WIPE clears history records, tracks and evidences of computer usage made in Windows. Nobody will be able to find out what you did on your PC.
  • Clear tracks in 100s other applications. WIPE will also clear tracks, evidences, garbage files in many other programs that you might have installed on your PC.
  • Impressive list with tracks preview – after running Wipe will show you convenient list of all tracks that you have on your PC, calculates amount of files and registry records.
  • Tracks preview. You can click any item in the list to see which tracks (information) stored under it to deside if you need to clear it.
  • Separated by areas. Every program in the list (including Windows) have several options to clean. User can specify what to clean more carefully. Every area have its own checkbox.
  • Closing running programs. The app checks for running programs and will close those that necessary for successful cleanup.
  • Watching for success. WIPE will verify tracks removal and will notify you if any file or registry record wasn’t deleted correctly. This can happen if some running program locking files/registry records.
  • No restore. Wipe uses anti-recovery methods, even file names will be renamed to digits so noone will be able to guess content of deleted files.
  • Reminds you ro clean your PC. Wipe tray agent can remind you to clean your PC when you have finished with Internet browsing.

Changes in Wipe 2020.19:

  • Added Dutch translation of the user interface (partial), big thanks to our volunteer Peter Medemblik.
  • Fixed several small bugs related to the user interface.

Changes in Wipe 2020.18:

  • Improved cleaning of cache of bookmarks icons in FireFox and Chrome browsers. Per request from our users we are changing the way how cached icons deleted in these browsers. By default, after cleaning your bookmarks loose all icons, and you will need to re-visit page so the browser updates site’s icon. Now it’s fixed. Cleaning of bookmarks icons is now separated in an individual checkbox which is not selected by default. Thus, they wont disappear without your explicit permission..
  • Added new function to search for software updates manually. At any time, as you wish. You can access this option from the menu which is available under icon at the top right corner of an app’s window. Note that automatic updates also enabled, thus there is no need to use this new option until you want it “right here, right now”…
  • Fixed bug when disabled typing effect result in overload of title bar.
  • Fixed bug that displays wrong version number in “About” window.

Changes in Wipe 2020.17:

Our app will use Windows OS function and create system restore point, and if (should not be), but IF something goes wrong you can roll back your Windows OS to previous state. You can access this function in the settings area. It requires a little bit of configuration, click the link to enable it.
  • Changed location of link “My interesting stats”, it is now in the Settings area, not on the main screen.
