Google provides users with lots of really useful services. Unfortunately, users pay for this convenience, as Google uses its online services to gather personal data about its users. GClean, from Abelssoft, has been developed to synchronize with the latest Internet browsers, and offers an easy-to-use interface coupled with some powerful tools that prevent data from being sent to Google.
Google Desktop, Google Toolbar, Chrome, Picasa and Earth: Almost every Google app sends some sort of information back to Google. GoogleClean prevents Google apps from sending any unnecessary personal information. With GoogleClean user IDs can be made anonymous, personal data can be deleted and spy cookies can be destroyed.
Key Features include:
- Deletes traces: deletes traces of Google apps on your computer.
- Automatic trace watcher: automatically check for, and cleanup, Google app traces.
- Prevents spying: turns off the espionage features of various Google apps.
GoogleClean is a very useful little app, for those of you who are security conscious. With it, you can delete traces automatically, rather than having to run through them manually. You can remove cookies, delete DOM cookies, and delete form data and saved passwords.
Overall, GoogleClean is able to detect services from numerous Google apps, such as Google Mail, Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome, Google Analytics, Google Toolbar, Google Desktop Search, Google Earth, Google Updater and Picasa. Most usefully, though, with GoogleClean it’s possible to delete the browsing history, clear the download list, remove all cookies, clear the cache, clear saved form data, and forget saved passwords from Google’s massively popular web browser, Chrome.
