Smith Micro Software, Inc. announced today Internet Cleanup 4.0 for Macintosh, the latest version of the popular software that protects users’ privacy and enhances their Internet experience. Internet Cleanup’s comprehensive solution blocks users private information from being transmitted over the Internet without their approval, helps manage Instant Messenger (IM) chat logs, selectively blocks Flash ads, and gives users greater control over their Internet experience.
“With Internet Cleanup 4.0, users now have even greater control over the personal information that gets transmitted over the Internet” said Pauline Shumake, Senior Product Manager, Smith Micro Software, Inc. “Whether it’s protecting their privacy from spyware or selectively blocking Flash and banner ads, Internet Cleanup is designed to enhance the surfing experience and solve the privacy concerns of all Mac users.”
Internet Cleanup 4.0 contains a powerful array of features for Mac users:
• Now Universal Binary – Works natively with Intel and PowerPC based Macintoshes.
• Personal Info Protector – provides users with a secure place to store all account numbers, passwords and any other sensitive information. It eliminates the high-risk of using unprotected sticky notes or spreadsheets to store easily forgotten but important information, and prevents it from being transmitted across the Internet.
• Blocks Flash ads: With NetBlockade users now have the luxury of seeing only the Flash content that they want.
• Detect the latest spyware – SpyAlert scans the computer for evidence of surveillance Spyware and safely removes it.
• MailCleaner filters attachments with Smart Rules – Smart rules allow users to create search criteria that can filter out or find email attachments based upon file name, sender, file size, date, time and more.
• Greater MailCleaner support for Apple Mail – MailCleaner allows users to organize or delete Apple Mail attachments by moving them to selected folders.
• Selective history editing – Internet History Cleaner protects user privacy by cleaning out specific sites from history lists, deleting those that compromise privacy.
• Safeguard IM privacy – Instant Messenger Log Cleaner finds and deletes instant messaging chat logs for major IM applications to keep conversations private.
• Protect against secret monitoring – Network SpyAlert immediately stops programs from sending data to the Internet without the user’s permission.
• Block Web-based spies – NetBlockade blocks unwanted cookies, ads, pop-ups as well as URL referrers that tell websites about the previous web page a user visited.
• Block ads – NetBlockade accelerates web surfing by blocking banner ads, and pop-up and pop-under windows.
• Shred confidential files securely – SecureDelete ™ acts like a digital document shredder, completely removing private files so they cannot be recovered from a hard disk, even with special disk recovery tools.
• Keep surfing habits private – Internet Cleanup clears away hidden files that show outsiders which Web pages, sites, and images were viewed. It can automatically delete unwanted cookies and protect the cookies users want.
• Internet file finder tool – Forms Auto-Fill Data Cleaner finds and remove any auto-fill data collected by web browsers; Cookie Editor gets rid of the browser cookies users don’t want and keeps the ones they do; Supports all major web browsers, including Safari, Firefox, Mozilla, Internet Explorer/AOL Netscape, OmniWeb, Camino, iCab, Opera, Sherlock, and Shiira.
• Selectivity – Internet Cleanup allows cleaning actions to be applied to individual files returned by searches. Move items to the Trash or to a folder of the user’s choosing.
• Schedule tasks – The Scheduler tool lets users create scheduled tasks to automatically perform searches and clean their system.
• Run multiple functions concurrently – Internet Cleanup’s multi-threaded implementation allows users to conduct multiple tasks without having to wait for searches or other time-consuming operations to complete. Users can see the progress of all searches and tasks in the activity viewer window
