HackerSmacker is a personal firewall that keeps your personal data private and safe from Internet hackers and data thieves. With an easy-to-understand user interface and pre-set security levels, you can protect your PC and keep hackers away for a faster, safer Internet experience. A firewall is a type of software that monitors all incoming network traffic while you're online and allows in only the connections that are known and trusted. Without a firewall, your computer is basically an "open door" to hackers. All of your private information such as passwords, credit card numbers you've used for online purchases and documents that you don't want to share with anyone are all available for hackers to steal. Whether you have a dial-up, broadband or DSL connection, every minute that your computer is connected to the Internet, it is at risk. Many people mistakenly think that the anti-virus software that came with their PC protects them completely from hackers. But anti-virus software does nothing to secure your computer against direct hacker attacks.
- 'Clean Slate' secures your private information HackerSmacker's 'Clean Slate' function deletes all of your private information from the hard drive including credit card numbers, telephone numbers and e-mail addresses. It also deletes all of your cookies, histories, temporary Internet files, URL history, auto-match list, temporary system files, recently viewed pages, 'run' command history and password records.
- Advanced scheduling features HackerSmacker users have the capability of scheduling a specific time period in which the PC is allowed to be online.
