  • Rating: ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings
  • Reviewed on: 26 October 10
  • RRP: From FREE

LastPass is a great free product that will assist you in keeping your passwords secure. We're less sure that the Premium upgrade is worth even the small price charged.

4. Verwolf

  • Reviewed on: 2 February 11

If you've got the patience and time to manually program Verwolf for each app you own, then it'll save you a lot of time later. There's a better alternative out there, though: Secunia PSI, which we've reviewed favourably in the past. Until Verwolf has a few more iterations under its belt, try <a href="http://www.pcadvisor.co.uk/reviews/index.cfm?ReviewID=3258472">Secunia PSI</a> instead.

Anonymizer Nevercookie is more a proof-of-concept than anything else at this point, because it doesn't integrate into your normal browsing sessions, and works only in Private Browsing. Still, if you're worried about evercookies, and are willing to browse the Web in Private Browsing mode, you'll find it useful.

1. Ghostery

  • Rating: ratingsratingsratingsratingsratings
  • Reviewed on: 23 December 10
  • RRP: Free

If you value your online privacy and would prefer to browse the web without your browsing history and habits being shared with marketeers and advertisers, Ghostery is your friend. This free add-on for most browsers works very well, and is from a company that seems to have no commercial interest other than to restore the rights of individual users who object to being spied upon.
