Spybot Anti-Beacon
« on: January 18, 2018, 03:36:03 PM »
Spybot Anti-Beacon  >>  https://www.safer-networking.org/spybot-anti-beacon/


=========================================================
Spybot Anti-Beacon is a standalone tool which was designed to block and stop the various tracking (telemetry) issues present in Windows 10. It has since been modified to block similar tracking functionality in Windows 7, Windows 8 and Windows 8.1 operating systems.

Anti-Beacon is small, simple to use, and is provided free of charge. It was created to address the privacy concerns of users of Windows 10 who do not wish to have information about their PC usage sent to Microsoft. Simply clicking “Immunize” on the main screen of Anti-Beacon will immediately disable any known tracking features included by Microsoft in the operating system.



Chief Wiggum: Uh, no, you got the wrong number. This is 9-1…2.

Hmmm, no updates since November 2016. :-\

Personally, I'd suggest O&O ShutUp10 instead.

<snip> Hmmm, no updates since November 2016.

A new version is in beta stage since December. Looks good so far.
