O&O ShutUp10

BEST TOOL FOR STOP­PING WIN­DOWS SNOOP­ING SHENANI­GANS

APC Australia - - Super Guide » Apps & Services For Privacy - OO-SOFT­WARE.COM

There are a huge num­ber of prob­lem­atic set­tings in Win­dows, from Mi­crosoft’s Ad­ver­tis­ing ID and sys­tem in­for­ma­tion up­loads to the shar­ing of hand­writ­ing data and Cor­tana searches. ShutUp10 gives you one easy con­sole to shut them all down at once, with­out hav­ing to dig through var­i­ous set­tings menus and registry ed­its. It gives a huge list of po­ten­tial pri­vacy is­sues and lets you select which ones to switch (with some sen­si­ble rec­om­men­da­tions in place as well).

Rec­om­mended al­ter­na­tive: W10Pri­vacy ( www.win­pri­vacy.de), has a sim­i­lar fea­ture set to ShutUp10, but also in­cludes a clear de­scrip­tion of what each op­tion does (as well as the po­ten­tial down­sides of switch­ing it off).
