The preferences, settings and configurations you use for your applications are all specific to you. Every time you use an application, a trail of use is left behind that anyone could exploit.

Your privacy can therefore be compromised if someone is able to obtain some of this data. Going through each application and deleting data one by one is very time consuming which is why Tiptoe has been invented. Tiptoe allows you to clean privacy data from a whole host of applications in one go. It won't work with all of them, but it supports an ever increasing number.

Tiptoe is particularly useful if you want to chat, view images and movies, edit documents etc without a trail of your actions being visible to outsiders. When you open the Tiptoe interface, it will list all the applications installed on your system that it supports. Just select those applications that you'd like to keep your actions private on. If you want to erase old trails, simply select the application you'd like to clean and click Reset.

At the moment, Tiptoe only supports major applications but as this grows and as privacy becomes an ever more important issue, it could become a very useful security tool.
