BetterPrivacy 1.68

A useful Firefox add-on that deletes Flash cookies stored by your web browser, while offering support for an automatic deleting process
BetterPrivacy is a Firefox add-on able to protect your sensitive data from unauthorized viewing by removing the cookies stored by web browsers.

Compared to other similar applications that aim to delete all types of cookies, BetterPrivacy deals with a special type of cookies, namely Flash cookies, or the so-called LSOs (Local Shared Objects).

This type of cookies cannot be located in your web browser, so this is why you need to use dedicated tools like BetterPrivacy to help you get rid of them on the go.

Basically, it proves to be very easy to work with this tool, as it automatically scans your web browser and displays the found cookies. You can view information about the LSOs, namely link, name, size, and date when they were last modified.

Furthermore, it is possible to manually select the cookies from the list to be removed, or make BetterPrivacy automatically delete them when you close Firefox, or at a specified time.

Additionally, you can be notified when a new cookie is stored, and you can also assign a hotkey for deleting LSOs with minimum effort.

During our testing we have noticed that the application carries out the cleaning process quickly and without errors throughout the entire process.

All things considered, BetterPrivacy offers a simple software solution when it comes to keeping your PC clean and safe from threats that may compromise its security. It can be easily installed and configured by all types of users, regardless of their experience level.
