O&O Software launches free antispy tool for Windows 10
While the market share Windows 10 controls continues to grow, heading for the 100 million installs barrier, many potential users of Microsoft's latest operating system avoid updating due to privacy concerns. A lot has been said and written about Windows 10 sharing WLAN access data, recording of user activity, sharing various technical and activity details with Microsoft, and so on.
Most potential security risks mentioned above can be easily addressed by manually changing settings or disabling various services, but O&O Software's ShutUp10 brings all these changes one click away. This program is free, fully portable, and all the changes can be easily reverted at a later time if needed. ShutUp10 can disable telemetry, WiFi Sense, app notifications, app access to the camera, localization settings or microphone, location services, as well as Windows Update or Windows Defender. In addition to these, O&O Software ShutUp10 can also disable feedback reminders, OneDrive, Cortana, or the Windows 10 search with Bing extension.
ShutUp10 comes in a ZIP package that only has about 100 KB in size and does not require installation. The program allows beginners to apply recommended settings or recommended and limited recommended settings with a single click. On the other hand, ShutUp10 also provides detailed information about each Windows 10 setting it can change. All in all, this is a very handy tool for any Windows 10 user, beginner or security expert alike.
