How to Erase Yourself From The Internet footprint?

Do you want to erase your internet footprint? 
Here are some great tips, tools, and strategies that help you to remove yourself from the web world.
“The internet never forgets”
Every person browsing the web leaves a digital footprint: published e-mail addresses, reused nicknames, posts on forums and social networks. And while the existence of the footprint itself is not inherently dangerous, this data can be used against you. It seems almost every week we read headlines about cybercrime, data breaches, identity theft; or even hackers using ransomware to hold your private data hostage.

So, is there a solution? Well, while there’s no way of completely erasing yourself from the digital universe, you can minimize the risk.

First off, you have to remove your web accounts, for that, you can use automated services like Deseat.me or manual alternatives like JustDelete.me to remove superfluous registrations. After logging in with your Google or Outlook account, Deseat.me will check which accounts are registered to the specified email, and either delete it for you, or guide you through it. If you want to see which accounts you forgot about, Deseat.me is a good place to start.

But, unfortunately, sometimes it’s impossible to delete your account completely, in these cases it’s recommended to change the data attributed to the account. Most websites allow you to change your email address, birthdate and name after registration, and you can use this feature to your advantage.

One other thing you have to worry about are data brokers. Companies like Intelius collect publicly available information to sell it, or sometimes give it away for free. Most of them are kept in control by law, though, and you can free yourself from their clutches; even if it might sometimes require faxing in forms for verification.

One of the most important tasks you’ll have to do is be careful in the future. Never enter personal information unless you absolutely have to, and think twice about opting into web services. A lot of privacy is given up voluntarily.

Avira Optimization Suite 2018 Review

Today I’m going to review Avira Optimization Suite 2018
The new Avira Optimization Suite 2018 is a combination of Avira Antivirus Pro 2018 + Avira System Speedup Pro 2018

Avira offers a specially crafted framework that unifies their software in a lightweight application called, well, Avira. The application handles registrations and delivery of the security software, it was added as a part of a complete user interface overhaul of Avira software in 2018. Since Avira offers its customers a number of different security related services, not every customer will require every single one of these services. For example, I need a general purpose antivirus, but I don’t need a password manager – the Avira launcher allows me to choose which features I need, and which I don’t, and customizability is something we really love here at Anti-Virus4U.com


So, looking at the launcher more closely, we can see a list of installed software on this computer, for me it’s Avira Antivirus Pro and System Speedup Pro, which are a part of the Avira Optimization Suite. We can also see a list of devices registered to my account, which is relevant, since some Avira licenses support multiple devices. And we can see the licenses applied to my account, again, in my case it’s the Internet Security Suite. But, looking back at the list of available software packages we can see more modules, like the so-called Phantom VPN or SafeSearch Plus. Clicking on the entry we’ll see a pop-up window describing this modules functionality in detail, and even providing screenshots, which is really handy. 

So, it’s time to move on to the main attraction, the Avira Antivirus Pro. You can open it by either clicking “Open” in the Avira window, or by right-clicking the Avira icon in the system tray, then clicking “Manage Antivirus”. Pretty handy. 

The Antivirus window is split into sections called “Status”, “Scan”, “Modules”, “Quarantine” and “Activity”. The status section is the one you’re probably going to interact with the most, so it’s the most simple one. It offers you the most crucial information like whether or not your machine is safe, whether or not the antivirus is up to date; whether or not the basic functionality of the software is active – you get the idea. Here’s what the notifications look like, as you can see here, the Avira Antivirus is telling me I have to update the databases. But, it’s not just information that the status screen offers you, you can also turn features on display on or off, so, if you need to copy some files that might accidentally trigger the antivirus, you can easily turn Real-Time protection off for a short period of time, and then turn it back on again. And, of course, you can also run a quick scan of the system. 

If your needs are a little more specific, however, you’ll have to use the other sections, like the “Scan” section, for example. Full scan will go through every file on your system, checking them for possible viruses; a quick scan will only go through some specific folders related to the operating system, the ones most crucial to the security of your computer; and a custom scan will either scan the folders specified by you, which is useful for some file management workflows, or scan for very specific security threats, like rootkits, for example. Actually, this last feature that scans for very specific threats is one that not a lot of antivirus software provides, I’m glad Avira included it in this release. And finally, the scheduler combines the rich feature set of a custom scan with, well, a scheduler. You can make Avira run specific types of scans when you want, so if you want to be 100% safe, but need high performance at specific times of the day, schedule a full system scan to run at night! 

The modules section is basically the same menu as the Status section, so here you can toggle specific security modules, and adjust their settings. So, if we open the settings for real time protection, we can adjust which file types are subjected to the scan, so you can potentially decrease your security risk by adding more file extensions in that list, or increase performance by removing filetypes you’re sure you’re going to be careful around. You can also disable monitoring network drives, allowing them to hibernate and thus increasing their lifespan, or enable scanning archives and customize which archives the antivirus will scan, which is handy, since some heavy archives may slow your system down when archive scanning is activated. Stuff like which actions the antivirus should take after finding an infected file is also something you can customize with Avira. Moving on to the Firewall settings, we can enable blocking all incoming connections, which might be handy for some very specific web tasks; and specify application rules in the official Windows Firewall. 

The quarantine section will show you files that were put in quarantine after a scan or after a real time protection system was triggered. Here you can see the exact type of threat Avira “busted” the file for, the date it happened, and you can also decide what to do with the file, with “delete”, “restore” and “rescan” being the options offered to you. 

The activity section shows you all the tasks the Antivirus has done recently, like starting and finishing scans or updating the software. If you are an especially active antivirus user, you can filter the journal by task type and time – really handy! 

So, as you remember, the Avira Optimization Suite 2018 also includes Avira System Speedup Pro a piece of software designed to accelerate your PC startup times, achieve smoother web surfing and faster loading, let’s take a look. Again, in order to open any of the Avira software, all you have to do is launch the Avira Launcher, then choose the needed software package. 

The “device optimization” section deals with general slowness of your computer that’s usually caused by fragmented files and broken registry entries and fixes these problems. 

The boot optimizer looks for unnecessary startup services and safely turns them off, effectively speeding up your boot time. 

The Power Modes section controls the Windows built-it power management functions, that control which processes get most attention from the CPU, essentially either expanding your battery life, or increasing performance, depending on what you choose. Contrary to popular belief, this feature set is not only used on laptops, it’s also used on stationary PCs. 

The game booster searches for your installed video games and allows you to increase their performance by focusing all the PCs resources on the game process and closing unnecessary background services. And the Ultra Boost offered by Game Booster creates a virtual drive in your RAM to speed up your load times to the point where they’re almost instantaneous! Keep in mind though, this feature requires a very beefy PC to begin with. 

Bottom Line:
After taking a close look at the Avira Optimization Suite 2018 I can see that the overhauled user-interface and the implementation of the launcher has done a lot to streamline the user experience; and combined with an already excellent security modules of Avira Antivirus Pro and optimization features of System Speedup Pro, the Avira Optimization Suite makes for an amazing software package.

ESET Internet Security 11 (2018) Review

Today I’m going to Review ESET Internet Security 11 (2018). So, let’s get right to it.
In the home screen you can see the basics, like the overall state of the computer for example, as you can see, ESET is keeping us safe. You can also do a quick security sweep of your system by clicking here, or you can open a special secure browser for online banks and other payment websites. One feature I really like in ESET Internet Security is the so called “connected home monitor”. This feature shows the devices that are currently on your network, and lets you look up their IP addresses, MAC addresses and so on, you can also look up when exactly the devices entered your network. It’s very useful, especially with the rise of cyber-attacks from seemingly secure smart home devices like smart light-bulbs. 


Switching over to the Computer Scan section, we can do a custom scan and specify locations. You can even scan the Boot Sector manually, which is great, since most antivirus software solutions don’t allow you to do that, this is mostly exclusive to ESET. 

The Update section is pretty straightforward, since there’s not much to set up, when it comes to database updates; but, you can see when specific antivirus modules were updated, as you can see here, it’s a pretty big list of security modules that ESET provides. 

In the Tools section we can see 2 features we have already discussed, like the Connected Home Monitor and the secure Banking web browser; and one feature that we haven’t seen yet, called Anti-Theft. Anti-theft will allow you to see your devices position on the map, monitor foreign activity, and, ultimately, increase the chance of getting it back. After enabling the feature and registering your device, ESET will advise you on how to proceed, in order to optimize your device for this feature, for example, add a password to your Windows account and also add a new, phantom Windows account that the robber will see instead of the real one, so that your private data stays safe. 

Clicking on “more tools”, there’s even more in-depth tools for security analysis, like a more advanced task manager that will allow you to spot a rogue executable easily, or a file system monitor that can be used to spot encryption tools trying to capture your data, and a network monitor that allows you to see which processes communicate with the outside world, and how. 

But, besides the more in-depth tools, ESET also provides essentials like a scheduler, which will allow you to customize the antivirus’s scanning routines to better suit your needs; a system rescue LiveDisk, for extreme cases when your pc can’t even boot to windows, and a system cleaner, that will free up space on your main drive. 

Over in the setup section you can toggle ESET Internet Security features on and off. So, for example, if you’re using a public e-mail service like Gmail, you can turn off Email client protection and anti-spam protection. Or, if you prefer the Windows built in firewall, you can disable the one ESET provides you. You can also manually block malicious IP addresses. 

For more performance minded people, you can disable more intensive modules like a Real-time file system scanner, even though I personally would not recommend that.

Bottom Line:
Essentially, every imaginable customization of your antivirus setup is possible with ESET Internet security, and I haven’t even covered the Advanced settings, which are so expansive, they have their own search bar. Honestly the feature set and freedom ESET Internet Security provides is not just impressive, it’s mind-blowing. And the smart design hides the customization away if you don’t want it. It’s kind of ingenious.
This piece of software will fit right in on both a family PC and a tinkerer’s machine, I can definitely recommend it.
