System Mechanic Overview

As SDDs rely on flash memory, this makes storing, retrieving, overwriting, and deleting data fast and simple. This means that as soon as you click ‘Delete’ on a file, it can be gone in an instant.

If you are looking to delete files from an SSD in order to sell or replace your SSD, you will want to consider:

  • Formatting the disk (if it is a local drive), or
  • Using the SSD manufacturer’s own utilities tool (which can usually be downloaded for free on their website) to erase data from the SSD

These are often the safest and quickest ways to erase data from an SSD.


No Cookies

Not a single cookie crumb.
Cookies follow you around and stalk everything you do. It’s how the internet targets you with ads. iolo SafeSearch doesn’t use cookies. Period.

Share Links with Confidence

Links that don’t go wandering.
When you share links with others to your search results, the link will conveniently expire within the hour.

Keyword Encryption

Extra protection with encryption.
Enter a search term, and we’ll encrypt it. Normally, your search terms appear in the URL, available for anyone to track or exploit. With iolo SafeSearch’s Advanced Privacy Mode, your search terms won’t be spelled out for the entire world to see.

Pure, Unfiltered Results

Pure, unfiltered results. Always.
Who said search results should live in bubbles? iolo SafeSearch doesn’t use your habits or profile data to filter search results. That gives you a wider, deeper range of information without bias.
