Settings

Settings48The Settings page is where you give WinPrivacy directions on what to do. When WinPrivacy is first installed, blocking and removal settings are all disabled. Upon registering your WinPrivacy license, you will be unable to activate these features.

PLUS Code Registration

Program Recognition

We STRONGLY suggest activating BOTH “Automatically block…” and “Smart Recognition” as soon as you register WinPrivacy.

Why?

That’s easy. Automatically blocks tells WinPrivacy to block any new program from accessing the Internet. “Smart Recognition” tell WinPrivacy to utilize our definitions and automatically allow “known good” programs.

Pretty cool, huh?
 
We’ve done a lot of the work for you, but because we know this is your computer we give you the final say.
ProgramPromptsWinPrivacy raises a dialog like the one on the left, giving you veto power over any automatic decision.
 
If you ignore the prompt, WinPrivacy will automatically enforce the default action. In this case, Allow. (See the prompt title)

Canvas Fingerprinting

We have two settings for blocking of Canvas Fingerprinting.

  • Block Canvas Fingerprinting”, by checking this you are directing WinPrivacy to block all attempts at Canvas Fingerprinting we detect, but allow all other traffic with the domain serving up the Canvas Fingerprinting code.
  • Block all communication with Fingerprinting domains*”, by checking this you are directing WinPrivacy to completely block all traffic with domains knows to serve up Canvas Fingerprinting scripts. Just the fact that you’ve opened a page or email containing an image serviced up by their site can result in tracking to some degree. This is because they know you looked at that page or email because they serve up the requested the graphic(s).

*You should use the setting Block all communication with Fingerprinting domains with care because it can result in some websites completely failing to load.

We will be adding an “ignore domain” setting for this so that you can visit a favorite site if it does fail to load due to either of these settings.

Flash Cookies

You can direct WinPrivacy to automatically remove all flash cookies from your computer that are not marked as Allowed and appear on your Allowed Flash Cookies Tab.

This setting is off by default, you must request we remove Flash Cookies.

Traffic Retention

These features are deactivated by default, because they are only useful when researching the behavior of a program and can result in slowing your Internet Access.

First, you can set WinPrivacy to retain Historical Connection data for up to 30 days. This setting has very little effect on your browsing speed, but can result in a large volume of data being saved to your database.

Second, you can set WinPrivacy to retain Traffic History for up to 30 days. Because of the nature of the volume of data that must be retained this can result in noticeably slower browsing speeds, as well as, a very large database. We strongly recommend only using this feature if you truly need to view the traffic for a particular program.

In a future release, we will allow you to set this setting for an individual program rather than in bulk.

What does "Anonymous License" mean anyway?

Anonymous License

Simple. We don't know who you are and we don't care. We simply want to provide you with a great product at a great price. Like walking into a store with cash in your pocket and walking out with what you want.

When you purchase any of our products, our cart processors need to request enough information to process the order and to meet tax regulations. In other words, we need to be able to summarize all orders by county for the State of Florida where we are located. No details. We only access this summarized data at tax time.

We DO NOT receive ANY personal information, including your email address, domicile address, or even country of purchase. Our cart processors simply ask us to give them a license to send to you in exchange for processing the order.

This means unlike companies like Facebook, Google, most security products and most other companies on the Internet, we don't track you in the name of "marketing".

  • We don't collect your information.
  • We don't sell your information.
  • We don't give your information away.

We respect your privacy.
