Microsoft wants to harvest your details – don’t let it
Windows 10 is the most personal version of Windows yet, with lots of convenient features and the Cortana personal assistant, but Microsoft’s efforts to get to know you better have alarmed many privacy activists, who believe that the OS gathers far too much data about you.
If you share their concerns, there are several apps designed to limit the data that Windows 10 gathers. One of the most straightforward is Ashampoo’s AntiSpy For Windows 10, which enables you to disable advertising IDs, SmartScreen filtering, whether apps can access your camera and so on.
During Windows setup many of these settings are pre-configured and in many cases it remains unclear to what extent Windows 10 will send out usage data. Do you really want to allow Windows 10 to access your calendar, emails, your location and many other settings? With Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows® 10, you decide! Access all of your settings with ease.
Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows® 10 gives you an overview of all critical system settings and allows you to disable each one at the click of a button. Two included presets allow you to disable any reporting to Microsoft or rely on recommendations by our security experts.
