The Gadget Show features CCleaner

Internet security is a hot topic at the moment, and more and more people are turning to CCleaner to remove traces of their digital footprints. The Gadget Show highlighted how your online habits and personal data may be available to others, from advertisers to hackers.

Presenter Dom Littlewood explained that deleting cookies and other traces of your online activities using CCleaner helps to protect you.

The show also discussed 'secret' search engines like DuckDuckGo that don’t record your searches, browser extensions that block tracking cookies, antivirus software and how to stay safe when using unsecured public Wi-Fi.

CCleaner has previously been featured on the BBC and in newspapers such as The Washington Post, The Independent, The Telegraph and The Guardian.
