The user interface of the software is simple and easy to use by any users irrespective of their skills. Though it may look more clustered at the first sight, you might feel its simple interface as you start using it. Let’s discuss in detail the complete interface and its performance in protecting our online privacy.
The home screen displays a broad overview of all the features that were enabled and details of all the trackers who were tracking you. You can also find your privacy score and your tracking ID which changes randomly at frequent time periods.
The privacy score changes as you start enabling more security features of the software. The higher the score, the more secure you are.
The software notifies us whenever a website tries to track our online activity. So we can easily come to know which websites are safe to browse and those who track us.
You can find the list of all the browsers present on your PC and on which the TrackOff is enabled. It is recommended that you enable it on all the browsers present on your PC. The more number of browsers in which TrackOff is enabled, the higher your privacy score.
In this section, you can find the list of tracks on all your browsers. You need to delete them frequently to avoid being tracked. Your privacy score increases based on how frequently you clear all the tracks and the cookies. Click on the ‘Select Tracks’ to clear the cookies and browsing history selectively.
Whenever you visit and leave a website, the website leaves a cookie on your browser which can be used to track your online activities. While most often it is difficult to delete these cookies, TrackOff deletes them instantly without leaving behind any traces.
Here, you also have options to choose websites that you wish not to be tracked by the software. You can add websites which you trust to the whitelist so that those websites will no longer be tracked by the software. But remember, the more the websites you add to the whitelist, the lesser will be your privacy score.
This feature allows you to mask your original IP address by connecting to a server located in a different region. So your identity is completely masked and your original location or identity cannot be found. But this feature is available only in the TrackOff Elite version.
So here, you can see the complete details of all the tracking activities done on your by various websites. You can also see a list of tracks that were detected and blocked by the software. You can also get a complete report of all your tracking ID’s that were assigned to you while browsing the internet.
Here, you can access the general settings of the software and view your account and plans details. Some of the things that you can do here are: change your language, enable or disable notification whenever tracking is detected, and other startup settings.

What do reviewers and users say about TrackOff?
The reviews for the software are good and has many positives as the software promises. Almost all the reviews have unanimously given a decent rating for the software which makes us believe that the software does a decent job in monitoring your online activities.
While the reviews were all good, the user comments were somewhat mixed. While 70% of the user's comments are good, the remaining were bad and have listed some issues that were common to all the negative comments.
Some of the issues that many users reported were the software tends to slow down their internet connection, and sometimes the software makes the antivirus software not to function properly. While we did not experience any such issues with the software, we strongly advise you to try the software on your PC first before buying it.
Please find below some of the positive and negative comments that I came across on the internet.
“With its polished and easy-to-understand interface, as well as the simplicity of its features that keep your online privacy safe, TrackOFF Elite is a Prosoft Preferred Product. To get protected, all you need to do is follow the prompts to install any needed browser extensions, enable Browser Protection, and set up a cookie clearing schedule.” – Prosoft Engineering
“I really like this software. You can set a schedule to clear the history from all your browsers. Even though I had been manually attempting to clear cookies…etc., there was a ton of stuff still there. This program cleared it all, keeps it clear and I now have encryption.” – User
“This item has good intentions and did what it was designed to do but it slowed my internet browsers down a lot! My internet security/anti-virus software has the same capabilities and does just as well without slowing down the browsers. I pretty much regret my purchase since the product key is registered to me for the 1 year and cannot return the item.” – User
What are the limitations in the trial version of the software?
The software does offer a trial version for its users to have hands on the software before buying it. But there are certain limitations as with other commercial software.
You can use the software only for a period of 30 days and after that, you need to buy the licensed version to continue using it. Again in the trial version, you do not have access to their private search and VPN features which are present only in the TrackOff Elite.
What is the price of the software?
There are two license packages available for TrackOff namely TrackOff standard and TrackOff elite. The only difference between the two is you will have access to their VPN feature in the elite version and the feature is not present in the standard version.
While the regular price of TrackOff standard and TrackOff elite are $34.99 and $59.99 per year, they are now available at a discount of 25% and hence they can be bought at $26.24 and $44.99 per year respectively.
There is no information about the money back guarantee from the developers. Will try to update this space with any details if I come across in the future.

With increasing frauds and thefts that are taking place in this online world, it is very much essential in protecting your identity and your personal information from getting hacked by cybercriminals.
So TrackOff can be a better solution for this critical problem as it protects us 24/7 from various sources and websites that might track us and try to steal our personal and confidential data.
