Kamo 4.0 adds VPN technology to block more online snoopers

28 April 2022, Nick Peers

Piriform Software, best-known for its CCleaner cleaning product for PCs and Macs, has released Kamo 4.0, a major new update to its Windows privacy tool.

Kamo 4.0, which blocks online trackers through a range of tools built into a single application, has added location masking through the implementation of a basic VPN, which masks the user’s IP address and exact geographic location through an encrypted connection through another server in their own country.

Kamo’s VPN tool is a simple on/off switch – no configuration or customisation available.

The tool is the most basic form of VPN implementation there is: a simple on/off switch with no means of choosing which server is accessed.

The feature joins Kamo’s other features, all designed to mask a user’s online presence from a range of threats. A dashboard provides an at-a-glance view (and rating) of the user’s current privacy, while buttons beneath provide options for setting a range of anti-tracking settings, from protecting individual browsers to switching on intrusive Windows telemetry settings.

The app’s main clam to fame is its patented anti-fingerprinting technology – rather than attempt to block intrusive behaviour, the tool instead creates randomised fingerprints to throw off trackers. To further disrupt their behaviour, new fingerprints are generated on a random schedule.

Kamo 4.0 aims to offer a comprehensive – and centralised – tool for managing online privacy.

A 14-day trial of Kamo 4.0, which is fully functional except for the new VPN tool, can be downloaded now for PCs running Windows 7 SP1 or later. The Windows Privacy component works only in Windows 10 or later. A 12-month subscription covering a single PC can be purchased for $24.95.
