iSecure

Secure Empty Trash in macOS High Sierra (10.13) is back.

It was the security feature in previous macOS which enabled users to delete files securely. Later in OS X El Capitan, Apple removed it mainly for two reasons. First, keeping growing SSD usage in mind for future Mac devices and secondly, non-guaranteed functionality of Secure Empty Trash for some hardware which was referenced in security notes for OS X El Capitan.

Solution ? Simple one.

To overcome the disappeared feature of Secure Empty Trash, I've created iSecure app which helps users to securely erase data with U.S. Department of Defense standards. iSecure is originally available for $7.99 and is free for a limited time (HDD Support Only).

New Year. New Design.

It's my pleasure to welcome you on my redesigned website.

From the past entire 3 months, I've busy designing, developing and testing my personal website. Working simultaneously on this project along with studying for graduate program was challenging yet a fun task. At first, I had planned to launch the website on the first day of 2018 but I couldn't resist the excitement. So, here it is - official release of my brand new website. Check back for more exciting posts.
