Privacy Issues and us
Privacy issue is of serious concern these days. Even if you have deleted everything from your browsing history, there would still be traces left of it. These traces can help intruders and hackers in attempting to break-in your system and hack your important credentials such as credit card information, private bank account details, and many more.
Unfortunately, most of the users do not realize that even though they are providing credit card information on trusted websites, backend monitoring through spyware could be done by hackers.
Moreover, by not removing junk files, temporary files and tracking cookies, system can get slow. To avoid this, it is important to perform regular maintenance and health checks on your system to assure efficient CPU utilization.
