DELETE HISTORY

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

You may already know how to clear your history. But the truth is, you’re only doing ½ the job when you hit the Delete button.

In reality, your Internet History is more than just the list of sites that appears on the left hand side of your computer. That’s just ONE if the places where your Internet History can be viewed. Deep within your PC there are multiple records of your Internet history that can be easily accessed and viewed.

Performing a simple delete will just delete the references; the real files are still there stored deep inside your hard drive. And anyone with a little ambition and time can get to those files and use them to invade your privacy.

History that you CANNOT manually delete
Hidden deep in your system is the “index.dat” file, which is a database file that stores your Internet history, Internet cache and webpage cookies. This file is almost impossible to find and Microsoft has designated it as a “system file” which means it is locked and cannot be manually deleted…ever.

Internet History What would your history say about you?
Armed with Internet History files, a person can quickly build a very comprehensive profile of you as a consumer, employee and spouse.

Do you know what’s stored in your Internet History records?
