The modern digital world of convenience and instant conveyance has one slight flaw. Anybody who utilizes ostensibly free services like Google’s search, Google Chrome, YouTube, Picasa or Google Earth pays with a small piece of themselves. This is done through the collection and utilization of user profiles and user cookies. They store information of various kinds, allowing Google to produce perfectly tailored advertisements and search results.
Many people no longer want, understandably, any of their information to be transmitted to third-parties. The answer: Abelssoft’s GClean. It targets and governs this flow of information that otherwise accumulates in massive data centers cataloging millions of users. GClean searches the user’s entire computer for existing Google software, then allows the cessation of all personal data transmission with a single mouse click.
GClean detects services like Google Search, Google Mail, Google Maps, YouTube, Chrome, Google Analytics, Google Toolbar, Google Desktop Search, Google Earth, Google Updater and Google Picasa. In particular, for Google Chrome, 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.
The G-Radar feature prevents future information collection attempts, and sounds an alarm when a Google service tries to save a new cookie. If you ever wondered how to avoid Google to collect your data, this issue is also solved by GClean. Besides all features that block data traffic, the software also includes an information removal request. G-Radar has a browser check, which checks after every surfing whether something has changed secretly in the browser settings. GClean supports the latest browser and Google service versions, ensuring optimal performance thereon. Additionally, the application has received a completely new interface; it is more modern, more simple to understand, and more intuitive to use.
The most important new feature: GClean offers the capacity to request the removal of a user’s webpages from Google’s search index. There are some things that people don’t want to appear on search results – social media profiles, personal photo albums, etc. GClean makes that preference heard. GClean is compatible with Windows 7, Windows 8, WIndows 8.1 and Windows 10.
GClean currently supports the following browsers: Google Chrome, Microsoft Internet Explorer, Microsoft Edge, Mozilla Firefox, Opera, Apple Safari and t-online.de Browser.
