During Windows setup many of these settings are pre-configured and in many cases, it remains unclear to what extent Windows 10/11 will send out usage data. Do you really want to allow Windows 10 to access your calendar, emails, your location, and many other settings? With Ashampoo AntiSpy Pro for Windows® 11 and Windows® 10, you decide! Access all of your settings with ease.

Ashampoo AntiSpy Pro for Windows® 11/10 gives you an overview of all critical system settings and allows you to disable each one at the click of a button. Two included presets allow you to disable any reporting to Microsoft or rely on recommendations by Ashampoo security experts.

Windows 11 and Windows 10 offer many comfort features such as the virtual assistant Cortana that can make everyday life easier for you. To make this possible, Windows 10 has to collect huge amounts of data. It also analyzes user profiles to display user-tailored ads as Microsoft openly acknowledges. So by default, Windows 10 is set to collect more data than many users would allow. Even the recommended express installation later states that: If you don't want a particular setting you'll have to disable it yourself.
  • 1-click immunization against tracking
  • Maximum privacy and protection against unwanted usage reports
  • Silence over 100 programs and services
  • Disable Windows 10/11 telemetry as far as possible
  • Prevent user tracking by Google, Office, Bing, hardware manufacturers, and many more
  • Auto-launch with Windows for permanent data privacy
  • Easily undo changes instantly
  • Relentless against unwanted user profiles
If you use Ashampoo® AntiSpy Pro at home, a single license will allow you to install the software on up to 10 PCs! Buy once and let your entire family benefit from a more secure Windows system! You'll only need a separate license for each installation if you use the software in a commercial setting.

As long as Windows 11/Windows 10 is running with default settings, numerous services collect data about program usage, occurring errors, or personal user interests. This data facilitates comfort features like Cortana (whether you use it or not) and provides Microsoft with error reports but also enables highly personalized ads. Many consider this a privacy threat and feel spied upon by their PCs.
