It is an easy-to-use organic software for all things related to viewing different types of history, freeing up space, erasing data, securing your privacy and much more.

  • Firstly, iMyFone Umate Pro, unlike Safari, can not only let you view your browsing history, but also allow you to see call histories, Safari caches, cookies and a myriad of other file types.

What Umate Pro can do for you

  • Help you delete all the unnecessary files that accumulate with time. Such files include hidden junk files, temporary files, app caches, cookies, crash logs etc.
  • Delete other large files such as photos, videos and apps. You can mass delete such files saving you a significant amount of time.
  • Furthermore, if you do not feel like deleting your photos, you can even compress them and export to your PC using Umate Pro.
  • In terms of protecting your privacy, iMyFone Umate Pro lets you erase files that you have already deleted. This is because files that you delete can normally be accessed using various methods. iMyFone removes such files by overwriting them thus making it impossible for anyone to retrieve them.
