I have discovered two very disturbing privacy issues:
1) The Site List tab in the so-called "Privacy" section lists "all the web sites visited in the current (ZA) session". This list includes sites I visited via IE and FF and appears to be captured independent of any browser privacy settings. This means that anyone can open ZA and see the list of site I have visited even if I have cleaned the browser cache and history list. Yes, I know the Site List is flushed at ZA shut down to include just the sites for which I have customized settings, so please don't say this is not a problem. I shouldn't need to shut down ZA and restart it to protect my privacy.
2) If #1 wasn't bad enough, not only does the Site List show the sites I've visited, but it also shows all the sites visited by other people (yes, with separate accounts) who have been logged onto the computer since ZA last started up. Thus, I can log off (not just "switch users" and someone else can log into their own, separate account and see what web sites I visited earlier.
Is there any way to turn this automatic web site listing "feature" off? I couldn't find anything about this issue in these forums or in product reviews on the web. If it can't be turned off, at the very least ZA should inform users of this privacy loophole. I recently switched to ZA from Norton, partly because of a similar issue with a "feature" I did not want and could turn off. This "feature" is worse and is making me consider switching back.
Thanks for any help anyone can give.
