Windows Telemetry
« on: January 24, 2020, 05:23:51 AM »
I finally broke down and installed Windows 10 on one of my laptops and I want to secure this machine from any sort of privacy intrusions from Microsoft ( I hear Windows 10 is spyware , lol ). What's the best software to accomplish this ( I've heard about Spybot Anti-Beacon , but there appears to be many others available - WPD , Blackbird , etc. ). Thanks for any info !  :thumbsup:

This actually seems like an impossible task. Even if you use some linux, just browsing in the web could potentially send some info to microsoft...But of course it's better to try to and make it hard for them. Wish you luck!  :cool:

Spybot Anti-Beacon works fine, been using it ever since Win10.

While you are at it, ditch at least some of the annoying characteristics of Win10 with WinAero Tweaker.
