Keep your online activity and personal data secure from would-be thieves and unscrupulous companies
You don’t need to be Edward Snowden to want privacy protection; you might not like your entire life mined by advertisers, you might be planning to sell a hard drive and want to wipe its contents, or you might want to keep your personal information secure when using a public Wi-Fi hotspot.

The apps here cover everything from secure web browsing to secure file erasing, and we’ve also included tools to make Windows 10 less nosey, and a completely secure OS that you can run from a USB drive.
