The computer is probably the most revolutionary invention in the 20th century. And more so is the internet. It’s impossible for anyone to shove off the significant contribution that computers coupled with the internet have brought into our very modern lives.
But we have to understand every bit of the two as well.
What we do not really know is that whenever we browse the internet and go to websites that require us to key in personal information is that our computer actually keeps tabs on these things and collects all those data and stores it in our hard disk.
Because we do not find these files in our desktops, we do not really know of such things.
But the truth is that even those files that we store offline still gets stored by our computers in our hard disk so that even if we try to delete these files from our recycle bins, our computer still has a copy of the file stashed away somewhere in our hard disk that is just waiting to be discovered.
I do not think that I have to narrate how seriously detrimental it would be to have information fall into the wrong person’s hands, especially with all the identity theft going on at the moment.
If you are somebody who shares his computer with somebody else, you will have to do something to make sure that none of your personal information leaks out to other people.
The solution is quite simple though.
All that you have to do is to install an evidence eraser program in your computer which scans your system for files that you want removed and deletes them completely so that you can no longer find traces of these files. Even the government uses this program to clean their computers.
Another benefit of having an evidence eraser is that it can empty out history folders such as the internet history and history of opened documents. More so, it can clean out the internet cache and temp files, and even shred sub folders.
