AntiSnooper 2.1
Obscure sensitive windows when not in focus using AntiSnooper.

Sometimes you don’t want other people to see what’s on your Windows desktop. Perhaps you work in an open office where certain programs contain sensitive or private information you’d rather not have to keep hiding from view. Or maybe you’re on the phone and don’t want your other half to see what present you’re spying for their birthday.

If, for whatever reason, you’d like to be able to obscure individual application windows then AntiSnooper is the tool to choose. It’s incredibly simple to use, effective and able to hide selected windows after a user-selected delay. With AntiSnooper running, just open the program in question – you should see it appear in the Windows Protection tab of AntiSnooper. Verify which window it refers to by clicking the highlight window button on the right, then click + to create a profile for that program.

First review and – if necessary – modify the profile name. Next, set a time-out in seconds – this is how long the window can remain unfocussed for before it’s obscured. Now choose your protection type: Window obscure simply blurs the window itself – use the dial to set the strength of the effect, while Windows ScreenSaver places a custom screensaver over the window in question – and other protection options include "Noise", "Blinds", "Mosaic", "Shift", "Splash" and "Halftone".

Click OK and the profile details are stored for future use (manage these from the Protected Profiles window) while protection is immediate. You can temporarily suspend any window protection via AntiSnooper’s main window – simply click the pause button.

You can also configure AntiSnooper to start automatically with Windows and minimise it to the System Tray so it’s invisible when in use.

Verdict:

It's a simple way to hide background windows from view for privacy purposes while you're at your computer, but you'll still need to lock your desktop when moving away from your PC to keep those prying eyes at bay.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.12.1

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

Version 2.12.1 brings:
 - WhatsApp Calling: Call your friends and family using WhatsApp for free, even if they’re in another country. WhatsApp calls use your phone’s Internet connection rather than your cellular plan’s voice minutes. Data charges may apply.
