Fix Windows 10 privacy

Post by Watcher » Sat Aug 08, 2015 7:52 pm

https://fix10.isleaked.com/ has a good guide on the settings and locations that are available to protect your privacy.
What's this about?

Microsoft introduced a lot of new great features in Windows 10 such as Cortana. However, most of them are breaking your privacy. For example if you're using the default settings, each time you start typing in search box in taskbar (to open an application or search for a file on your computer), your local search terms and location are sent to Microsoft, some of which advertise to you.

Windows have to protect user privacy by default. Since it doesn't, you can follow these steps to disable the parts of Windows which are invasive to your privacy.
http://www.theregister.co.uk/2015/08/03 ... _defaults/ refers to this subject and the guide above.
