New update! version 6.1 - Windows 10, v. 1909 (November Update)
  • Blocks 121 Microsoft servers engaged in user activity tracking
  • Blocks recent spying Windows Updates KB971033 and KB976932

Being a great overall system, Windows 10 includes a host of highly controversial features collecting information about the users and their activities on a Windows 10 PC and transmitting the data back to Microsoft. With no adequate warning, no concise privacy policy and, most importantly, no official way to disable the logging completely, the new Windows 10 spying features raise alarm with privacy advocates around the world.

Rolling your Windows 10 upgrade back to Windows 7, 8 or 8.1 does not solve the problem, as Microsoft is actively pushing the same tracking features to these systems via Windows Update. If you have rightful concerns about your privacy in Windows 10, you absolutely must take the matter into your own hands.

What Windows 10 Knows About You

Windows 10 collects astonishing amounts of information about its users, with Windows 7, 8 and 8.1 to follow the trend with newly published Windows Updates. The following information is collected and transmitted to Microsoft:

  • Everything you type on the keyboard (effectively, Windows 10 comes with a built-in keylogger)
  • Wiretapping: Windows 10 can listen to your microphone and engage your webcam in background without you even knowing (no, this is not a hoax)
  • Logins and passwords to Web sites, social networks
  • Fragments of email messages, chats and text messages (including those you send and receive via crypto-messengers such as Telegram)
  • Your geolocation coordinates (GPS, AGPS or approximate IP-based coordinates)
  • Your complete Web browsing history
  • Your search queries
  • Wi-Fi access points and their passwords
  • List of installed applications
  • Information about your listening preferences including the names of music tracks you're listening
  • Call logs
  • Your calendar entries, events and meetings
  • Your address book
  • BitLocker escrow keys: if you encrypt your hard drive or eMMC memory with BitLocker, recovery keys are automatically uploaded to Microsoft OneDrive; Microsoft Privacy Policy allows the company disclosing those keys to government agencies by request
  • Future Windows 10 updates are rumoured to disable features if the system discovers what it considers to be 'incompatible' or 'unlicensed' software or hardware components

Windows 10 Privacy Fix Tool allows you to disable select or all tracking services found in Windows 10 and delivered to Windows 8.1, 8 and Windows 7 with updates.
