Windows 10 is a great operating system. Not only are there bunch of improvements, but it's also pretty stable now after all the updates it received. However, there has been privacy concern regarding Windows 10 that may not
have been addressed yet (nor are we sure if they will ever be). If you Google 'Windows 10 privacy', you'll see exactly what we mean. According to the media, Windows 10 may be collecting your personal information.
If you are running Windows 10 on default settings (aka Express Settings), chances are that all pathways to your data collections are enabled. Most people are not even aware of this fact. You can, however, disable all of these settings. The problem with doing it manually is that it is time consuming, tedious, and may be confusing for average users to follow every step and disable all pathways one by one.
With Privacy Guardian, however, you can rest assured that all data collecting features built in Windows 10 will be turned off in a matter of 30 seconds.
If you search for articles on how to secure your privacy for Windows 10, most of their tutorials are simple enough, but it'll take an average of 30 min to an hour. With our tools, just select what you'd like to turn-off and click "optimize". That's it.
Some people are not very fond of our new friend Cortana; occasionally, she seems more annoying than helpful. However, completely turning her off is much trickier than it sounds. With our tools, you'll just need to click a button to completely shut her off.
One drive is enabled by default, and whether your actually using it or not, it's running in the background. There is not a quick "turn it off now" button; so we decided to include one in our tools. Don't want one drive? No problem; now it's easy to get rid of.
We've gathered a bunch of URL where Windows 10 sends data to; and if we block all those URL on your computer, Windows can’t send any of those information to their server. With these rules in place, your personal data will not be leaving your computer.
Windows 10 takes away some of the freedom you had in Windows 7. For example, what if you didn't want your computer automatically updated and restarted like every 3 days? Windows 10 won't let you turn that feature off; however, our tools will.
Another benefit is a faster PC. How does securing your privacy make your computer faster? Once we stop the background services from collecting and sending your data, your computer will have more resources to spare.
Changed your mind? Need to re-enable some settings? Don't worry, doing so is just as easy. We know exactly what we modify, so we can just as easily UN-modify those settings.
If you chose "express settings", you basically allowed windows to collect all sorts of data. Turning them off one by one is a pain. Don't worry, Privacy Guardian got your back.
