How to use Hotkeys (Panic Key) to activate Stealth mode in the Scheduler?

A Hotkey (also called a Panic Key or Anti-Boss key) is a keyboard shortcut. When pressed, it makes the entire wiping process completely invisible to any user but the software will continue to run in the background to eliminate all traces of your previous activities.

To define and use a Hotkey, please follow these steps:

  1. Open east-tec Eraser
  2. Click “Settings” -> Security tab
  3. Select “Enable Stealth mode”
  4. Write down the “Stealth key” combination that appears there or change it to another one
  5. When you run a scheduled erasing process and would like to run it hidden from other users just use the keyboard shortcut you have defined.
