Jack the Shredder

At a Glance
  • Generic Company Place Holder Jack the Shredder

There are some good extras Jack the Shredder, such as setting up a password so that only you can use it. And you can protect certain file types by setting them as exclusions. There's also a Safety Mode you can turn on so that you don't accidentally delete files with (for instance) a butterfingered drag-and-drop.

The title of the program, plus its splash screen, uses a Jack the Ripper character in a playful way. But this program is dead serious when it comes to protecting your privacy.
