  Sweeper protects your privacy on a shared computer

Sweeper offers you two big advantages

  • It can regain disk space
  • It can remove evidence of your activities on a computer that is shared

To do this it removes, with your agreement

  • Saved clipboard contents
  • Recent Documents
  • Recent Applications
  • Run command history
  • Your thumbnail cache

It also cleans up your web activity, removing, if required

  • Cookies and cookie policy
  • Web history and cache
  • "Favourite" Icons
  • Form completion entries

You can elect to remove any or all of these. You decide the balance between convenience and privacy.
