Does Cleanup shred items whilst cleaning? If not, is this not being introduced as standard protocol?

Hi,

thank you for an interesting idea.

We haven't considered this functionality yet although it kind of make sense at least for the personal related data like browser cookies, browsing & download history or even cache.
However the potential blocker at this point might be the fact that we lack shredding functionality in general in our product so I think this would make sense to implement once we will introduce a "Shredder" feature or something similar.
So far such feature is not on our roadmap as our AV product already includes it so we don't want to duplicate it in our product but maybe in the future we will find a way how to do it so I will note your idea in case we will come back to "Shredder" one day.

Thank you!

Ok, a little disappointing - I would have thought the products were more integrated.
