Key Features in Detail

  • Wide range of file types detected
    Snitch uses a sophisticated package of specialized search algorithms to scan your computer for inappropriate files. These algorithms are optimized to detect the majority of files that cause concern. File types detected include images (various types), movies (various types), audio files(various types), suspicious internet activity, internet cookies, as well as renamed files, files with obscene or suspicious filenames. With User-Defined searches, Snitch can be customized to detect specific types of files as well.
  • Second Generation SkinScan™ Technology
    Snitch can detect images containing nudity with its proprietary image processing technology, and then sort the results by 'suspiciousness'. This allows easy location of pornography and other adult material. Recovered files can easily be deleted from the system.
  • Browse movie and image thumbnails
    Quickly determine suitability of detected images and movies by browsing through them using pages of small images or 'thumbnails'. Questionable images can be enlarged to full screen for further inspection.
  • User Interface Enhancements
    The Snitch user interface has been enhanced for easier operation, with extra features including Save / Load result sets, abiltity to pause a scan to review results and then resume scanning, additional file copy / delete functions, right-click menus, etc.
  • Keyword Analysis
    Snitch incorporates a vastly expanded database of keywords that can be used to enhance search results. Filenames can be checked for the presence of keywords, text based files and documents can be scanned for contained keywords, and the results can be used to boost the suspiciousness rating of files.
  • Interactive deletion of offending articles
    Deletion of undesirable files and internet results could not be easier. Results can be added, within the Snitch interface, to a deletion list. At the completion of result viewing, the selected items are permanently deleted with the press of a single button.
  • 'Safe Files' and 'Safe Folders'
    The user is now able to add files to a 'safe file' list which flags them as safe and prevents them from appearing in results in future scans. This is useful in speeding up scanning and saves the user from reviewing of files that are known to be OK. The user is also able to save time by excluding specified folders from future scans if they are known to be clean.
  • Simple one-button operation
    Snitch is simple to operate for users who are unfamiliar with computers. With the press of a button, Snitch will automatically scan the target computer using the most common settings, and return results without user intervention.
  • Password Protect Snitch
    The user can set Snitch to require a password before use, to prevent unauthorized access by third parties.
