Is it safe to use Portableapps on public computers?

I'm just wondering if it is safe to use it on public. I hope it doesn't leave any files or spyware...

Safe when allowed

Provided the public computers mentioned allow running executables, the applications we provide are indeed safe to use on public computers.

Personally-identifiable information is removed when applications are closed.
There may be some non-personally-identifiable information that remains that is generated by Windows itself, depending on the computer and user account in use.

Spyware/malware/viruses are not permitted in any of our applications, and each application release is virus-scanned prior to release.

We recommend practicing Safe Portable App-ing, particularly when using public computers.
To be even safer, you may wish to have real-time virus scanning for your drive, available as part of the PortableApps.com Carbide.

PortableApps Carbide Link Broken

Hi Gord,

It appears the link to PortableApps.com Carbide does not work. As i get "Error 404 - Page not found!". I believe this may be the correct one below :

Shop page gone

It looks like the shop page is gone. I've updated the link. Thanks for letting me know!

[EDIT] Unfortunately, the worldsbestflashdrive site links to the same page on CustomUSB's site that no longer exists.
