    HistoryKill privacy software is an option for protecting privacy. The website and advertising betray some amateurish elements. This privacy software includes tools to remove traces left by using the internet and Windows. The included Auto-Kill function is designed to automate the process by cleaning your tracks from Windows when it starts up, and clearing your internet activity as soon as the browser is closed. You also have the option to run the software in Stealth Mode, which lets the software run effectively in the background where it won’t be detected by others. In the event of a surprise visit, you can use the boss key (hotkey) to hide what you’re doing. The software also includes a secure file shredder. When you delete a file using Windows, it is actually still recoverable. With HistoryKill you can effectively remove the file and any trace by overwriting the data multiple times.

    The publisher’s web site does not exactly engender trust. There is an October 11, 2012 announcement that “HistoryKill 2013 is here!” and it is "absolutely critical" that you update the product, which is “Now compatible with Windows 8!” With three exclamation points on the very first page of the web site, it is difficult to trust the professionalism of the source of HistoryKill.
