Automated privacy protection.

Overview

Privatus has been designed from the ground up with simplicity in mind. Built for ease of use, there is nothing to configure, no favourites, no whitelists, no blacklists,... no problems! Privatus just works!

Privatus securely removes all tracking cookies, unnecessary cookies, flash cookies, Silverlight, and databases from your Mac, automatically. You can run it from your system menu bar--you can even run it headless--Privatus will work silently and methodically in the background, clearing all unwanted data when you close your browser session.

  • All the major OS X browsers are supported: Safari, WebKit, Firefox, Chrome, Chromium, and even Camino.
  • All the power of our other popular 'Cookie' app, with none of the setup headaches!

I tried this for a week or so when it was first announced. The version at that time did work in the sense of deleting all cookies when the browser quit. But I also had Cookie, from the same developer, installed; and since there's no way to disable Cookie that I can find I never knew for sure which app was deleting the cookies. Privatus appears to be just a simplified version of Cookie (i.e. no preferences) and if you just want a cookie cleaner that deletes all your cookies on quit this will probably do the job. But if you're satisfied with Cookie I see no reason to switch.

Updated to v5.0.7 is buggy. Avoid it. Downgrade now.

The reviews here are not encouraging for Privatus - especially when Cookie Stumbler does everything you would need simply and automatically. I love Cookie Stumbler.

Works as far as removing tracking cookies but it also removes other cookies that I need to keep....such as my banks and also Google as I am constantly being asked to log in and for the banks they have to call me to verify my computer. I have no choice but to unib=nstall this. IT needs the ability to choose to KEEP certain cookies added and then maybe I will try it once again.
