Microsoft has always collected different types of users' information via its operating systems, but Windows 10 is the greatest culprit. If you want to control what the operating system sends from your computer, then Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10 will come in handy. You can use it to easily change the pre-configured settings.

Using Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10

We saved Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10 to our desired location and created a desktop shortcut to launch it. We liked the fact that the application was portable, which removed the possibility of interfering with our system registry.

When we launched the lightweight program for the first time, it gave us the option to create a restore point. That was a handy feature because we could easily take back our system to its former configuration in case we messed up something. We could also restore original Windows settings.

The program featured a single window that gave us an overview of more critical settings than other programs we had previously tested. We could tweak over 40 different settings to choose what to share.

Although all the settings were displayed in the same program window, they were grouped into various categories like contacts and camera, webcam/microphone access, browsing, location and camera. The program included two presets to make the work even easier if we did not want to go through each setting manually. One preset provided recommendations from Ashampoo's team of security experts while another disabled all reporting features.

Alternatively, we could scroll through the categories and disable the options we wanted individually. The options that were on displayed the word "ON" and had blue toggles, making them easy to identify.

Conclusion

Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10 is a handy application that gives users the power to decide the types of information they would like Microsoft to collect. You use single mouse clicks to disable the features you want to keep private. It is upon you to choose between enjoying all the comfort features in Windows 10 or giving your privacy a higher priority. The restore option is especially useful considering the limited descriptions offered. You need full administrator rights on Windows 10.
