WinPrivacy – See What Applications Access the Web
Review by on
Lots of applications are installed on your Windows-powered PC. But do you know precisely which applications can connect to and use the internet? If you don’t, WinPrivacy is here to lend a helping hand. This Ruiware product can tell you what programs use the internet, can block programs from using the internet, can block Flash cookies, and more.

Download an installer and run it. When a setup wizard shows up, click through the instructions it presents onscreen. In no time at all, you will install WinPrivacy on your PC. It must be mentioned here that two WinPrivacy editions are available: WinPrivacy and WinPrivacy Plus.

The aforementioned setup wizard explains that WinPrivacy Plus comes with these extra features: automatically block new programs from using the internet, block existing programs from using the internet, block Canvas fingerprinting attempts, automatically remove Flash cookies.

WinPrivacy’s interface is called WinPrivacy Explorer. You can access it by double clicking the WinPrivacy Explorer shortcut on your desktop or by double clicking the WinPrivacy tray application. WinPrivacy Explorer provides easy access to a large list of skins; use them to change the way WinPrivacy look.

From WinPrivacy Explorer you can view the following: an overview of allowed internet programs, blocked programs, allowed connections, blocked connections, allowed non-canvas fingerprinting, blocked canvas fingerprinting; a list of all the programs that use the internet, a list of programs that are blocked from using the internet; information about websites that use canvas fingerprinting and non-canvas fingerprinting; a list of allowed and blocked Flash cookies.

With WinPrivacy by your side, you know which applications can use the internet and you can block applications from using the internet.

It’s very easy to install WinPrivacy on a Windows PC. Two WinPrivacy editions are available: WinPrivacy and WinPrivacy Plus. WinPrivacy’s interface is very easy to use; said interface features a nice selection of skins. Use WinPrivacy to view which applications use the internet, to block applications from using the internet, to see which websites use canvas fingerprinting, and more. Detailed documentation is available online.

Certain features are reserved for the Plus edition.

My colleague Frederick Barton reviewed WinPatrol, another Ruiware product. He concluded that WinPatrol is “designed to be your faithful watchdog that keeps a keen eye on your system processes.”
