NetShred X

5.3.213 May 2019

Erase your browser cache, cookies, history, and more.

Overview

NetShred X is the easy-to-use Internet cache eraser for Mac that securely erases cache files your browser and email programs leave behind. NetShred X is the Internet privacy software that is easy, fast, and cleaner. Easy because it runs automatically - you don't have to remember to use it. Fast because it runs in the background - you don't have to wait for it. Cleaner because it will erase, not just delete all Internet tracks for almost every browser and email program on Mac.

Your Web browser stores copies of the images and text that you see when on the internet. This information can be recovered by anyone with access to your computer. These Internet tracks - browser cache, history, download cache, quicktime cache, favicons, cookies and email cache, trash, spam and junk mail - not only potentially compromise your privacy, they also take up a lot of disk space. Clearing your cache, throwing these files in the trash, or deleting them will not remove the file contents from the hard drive - it just removes the file name from the directory, leaving the data intact and recoverable. To dispose of these Internet tracks, you need an Internet eraser to erase them so they can't be recovered.

I have been using NetShred for many years without any problems. All the more disappointing then when I discovered that Version 4.7.4 was not shredding my history in Firefox 13.0. More disappointing still when my report took three days to produce an (unsigned) one-line response asking me "Which version of Firefox?". It's now a week since my original report and not another word. I don't necessarily expect instant solutions but a polite "Thanks for telling us - we're working on it now" would not go amiss.

Version 5 is released. Current version, as of this comment, is 5.0.3. I use this in conjunction with Cookie. NetShred X is an excellent product for my needs and I've been a licensed user for many years. You can us its basic features in the preferences and also tailor specifics (if you know what you are doing).

would be useful if you could just delete the files and not HAVE TO shred a minute every time. cant imagine which users really would need shredding and on SSDs thats probably useless anyway.

Anyone know of a new app that does what this did? I used Netshred for years without issue. But after upgrading to the latest version of Netshred X and OS X.10 (Yosemite) Nethsred X no longer works. It goes through the motions like it's working but when you open the browser (safari or Firefox) the history is still there. I contacted Mirth support but never received a reply.

Would be nice to see more frequent updates. The current version of NetShred supports Firefox up to v24 but now we are on v27.
