Full review

Setup

Anti Tracks can be installed on any Windows computer that is powered by a Pentium equivalent CPU. Additionally, the software requires 20MB free disk space and 64MB RAM. The installation process is hassle free and straight forward with on screen prompts guiding you through the process. Installation took about 3-4 minutes to complete on a computer that easily meets the minimum system requirements.

Internet Cleaning

As with most privacy software, Anti Tracks is equipped with essential features to clear traces of all internet-related activities. The software deletes online traces by removing your browser history, cookies and other unwanted traces left behind. Users can completely wipe all traces from emails, instant messaging conversations and even completely remove their email accounts via the software. The software is compatible with all major web browsers and the settings can be customised accordingly with different user accounts.

PC Cleaning

The software is capable of wiping traces from the internet, windows and other 3rd party applications. Anti Tracks does an excellent job in deleting undesired files, as well as remove junk and duplicate files. The user has the option of encrypting private files into locked folders so that the software doesn’t wipe important files. Further, the software is capable of repairing broken shortcuts and features an advanced password protection tool so it’s safe from hackers.

Safety

The user friendly interface ensures that users cannot accidently remove important files or damage the operating system. The software effectively removes traces of personal information without accessing or deleting critical system files, so the operating system is at no risk of being damaged by the software. To enhance safety the software is designed to be usable straight out of the box so the user does not need to change any of its settings.

Features

IP Hider: The IP concealer tool allows you to surf the web anonymously with an anonymous IP address. The software provides you with a selection of Alias IPs that you can use to protect yourself against hackers and spammers.

Cookie management: This feature allows you to prevent certain cookies from being deleted. For instance, you can choose to keep cookies that contain information such as passwords to sites and safely remove other cookies so that your online experience is not affected.

Disk Wiping: This feature takes care of the traces left behind on your computer after you delete files by scanning for previously deleted files and completely deleting them so they cannot be recovered.

Ease of use

The software is straight forward to use and is specifically designed with novice users in mind. The interface is cleanly organised with all the features and settings listed on the left sidebar. Navigating the software and customising the settings is straight forward, with an built-in help file that can assist you if you don’t understand the functions of a specific setting. The default settings allow the program to function effectively as it is, so you can simply install and run the software to full effect without spending any time on adjusting the settings.

Help & support

A number of support options are available for customers. A database containing frequently asked questions and a community forum are available through the product site if you have any enquires regarding the software. The customer support team can be directly contacted via email by submitting a support ticket. If you require urgent assistance then there is also a phone support option available that allows you to directly speak to a customer support associate, as well as a live chat support option. It is important to note that the live chat support is mostly offline and the email response time is by no means prompt.

Overall

Anti Tracks is solid all round privacy software that allows you to remove traces of your online history, permentantly delete files and securely store your personal information. The software has a good balance of features and is definitely worth considering if you are after a functional privacy suite.
