Ashampoo gets in Windows 10's eyes

Worried about the privacy aspects of Windows 10? This utility brings all the relevant controls into one place.

Some people are concerned about the extent to which Windows 10 'phones home' with some of your data. We previously brought you security vendor Bitdefender's tips for configuring Windows 10 with privacy in mind  as well as specific tips for disabling Cortana. But what if you didn't do a custom install so you could adjust the settings to your taste, and now find that the preferences are spread around, making it hard to check that everything is the way you want it?

That's where Ashampoo AntiSpy comes in. This free utility puts all the relevant controls in one place, saving time and trouble.

You can make your own choice for each setting, or pick either of two preset combinations - one disables all reporting to Microsoft, the other uses the settings recommended by Ashampoo's security guys.

AntiSpy doesn't really do anything that you couldn't do for yourself, but it does make the job easier.
