CCleaner has updated its Kamo privacy tool with new features designed to prevent online tracking so users aren’t tracked around the web by the sites they visit.
In order to hide users’ digital fingerprints, Kamo 4.0 introduced Private Connection which combines VPN technology and anti-fingerprinting for the first time.
By creating a secure, encrypted VPN tunnel between a user’s PC and the Internet, Private Connection is able to hide their location while preventing web service providers, governments, and hackers from intercepting and monitoring their browsing activity. in line. This is possible thanks to Kamo’s anti-fingerprint technology which creates new random fingerprints to reject trackers.
CCleaner Managing Director David Peterson explained in a press release how Kamo can prevent digital fingerprinting while deleting cookies and blocking ads cannot, saying:
“It’s essential that you take extra steps to protect your privacy online, as deleting cookies or blocking ads does not prevent you from being tracked via fingerprints. In fact, companies can easily identify people with a high degree of accuracy. This is where Kamo 4.0 and its dual protection come in to dramatically reduce tracking attempts, setting new standards in online privacy.
For those unaware, every device you use has its own unique fingerprint that can be used to identify and track you. This is why Kamo regularly creates new random fingerprints in an attempt to get rid of trackers.
At the same time, while thousands of companies collect user data, most fail to protect it properly, and your personal information can leak online through unsecured databases. Kamo ensures that companies cannot create a unique profile of users, which can prevent them from becoming victims of identity theft.
CCleaner’s privacy tool also removes hard-to-remove evercookies and zombie cookies in seconds so they don’t stay on your devices. Kamo users can even get more insight into the sites trying to track them, as it shows which websites are scraping their personal, family, medical, and financial data and stopping them in their tracks.
Another good thing about Kamo is that you can set it and forget it as the tool automatically syncs with all browsers so you are protected on all your devices.
While a one-year subscription to Kamo costs $24.95, CCleaner also offers a 14-day free trial so users interested in protecting their privacy online can try out its privacy tool for themselves. .
