Eraser
Securely wipe confidential files

Most PCs have at least some information that their owners would rather not share with the world: user names, passwords, financial records, work documents, whatever they might be. You could just delete a confidential file when you no longer need it, but this only removes a reference or two from your file system. The actual contents will remain on your hard drive (and accessible to any snooper with an undelete tool) until they're overwritten by something else, which could take weeks, months, maybe even years.

If you want to be sure that private files are gone forever, then, you need to use a secure deletion tool like Eraser. At the simplest level it can just overwrite a file before deleting it, which means there's nothing left for software undelete utilities to recover. But if you prefer to be thorough then you can choose to have your data overwritten several times, using various bit patterns, which scrambles it so securely that not even specialist data recovery hardware could restore the contents.

Eraser is supremely easy to use. At its simplest you can just right-click a confidential file or folder in Explorer, choose the Eraser option and have it securely wiped immediately.

An alternative is to set up a schedule to run secure deletions automatically. You might apply this to fully wipe the contents of your internet browser cache, the Recycle Bin, or even the unused space on your hard drive, which will destroy all previously deleted files.

Verdict:

Eraser has always been an essential security tool, and this version is even better.  Go grab a copy now

WhatsApp Messenger 2.18.81

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.

What's New in Version 2.18.81

- You can now use Siri to send messages to WhatsApp groups.
- Group voice and video calls are now available. When you're in a call, tap the “Add Participant” icon. Group calls support up to 4 total participants.
