Windows 10 - Privacy Concerns

Recently, I have been advised to update to Windows 10 so as to ensure that security issues on my pc are always addressed by Windows. Before attempting any of this, I did a bit of research to see what the implications might be. I have found a lot of concerns and you only need to type in 'Windows 10' into your browsers' search bars to get the result which is copied and pasted below. Some comments have even been, "You can either have Cortana or your privacy". I hope that this article helps you to make an informed choice before you make the shift to Windows 10.

"Windows 10 has a lot of privacy concerns. Hopefully, you can regain some of your privacy and enjoy the new Operating system, Windows 10." (Retrieved from the internet, 10 October 2015, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rczgCmoNSSE).

 

Here's a guide:

https://www.reddit.com/r/Windows10/comments/3f38ed/guide_how_to_disable_data_logging_in_w10

to choose which items you would like to disable, which should hopefully give you a relatively more private, safe experience, however at the risk of not being able to enjoy some of W10's features.

 

Before/During Installation:

•Do not use Express Settings. Hit Customize, and make sure everything is turned off.

•It's strongly preferred that you use a local account with Windows 10.

 

After Installation:

•Head to Settings > Privacy, and disable everything, unless there are some things you really need.

•While within the Privacy page, go to Feedback, select Never in the first box, and Basic in the second box.

•Head to Settings > Update and Security > Advanced Options > Choose how updates are delivered, and turn the first switch off.

•Disable Cortana by clicking the Search bar/icon.

•(Optional) Disable web search in Search by going to Settings, and turning off Search online and include web results.

•Change the name of your PC by going to Start (or hitting the Windows key), typing About PC, and clicking Rename PC.

 

Slightly Complex:

•Open up the Command Prompt by launching cmd as an administrator, and enter the following:

sc delete DiagTrack

sc delete dmwappushservice

echo "" > C:\ProgramData\Microsoft\Diagnosis\ETLLogs\AutoLogger\AutoLogger-Diagtrack-Listener.etl

• Open up the Group Policy Editor by launching gpedit.msc as an administrator. Go through Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Data Collection and Preview Builds. Double click Telemetry, hit Disabled, then apply.

NOTE: This only truly works in the Enterprise edition, but the final step provides a decent enough workaround for Pro users.

• While still in the Group Policy Editor, go through Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > OneDrive, double click Prevent the usage of OneDrive for file storage, hit Enabled, then apply.

• While still in the Group Policy Editor, go through Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Windows Components > Windows Defender, double click Turn Off Windows Defender, hit Enabled, then apply.

• Open up the Registry Editor by launching regedit as an administrator. Go through HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Policies\DataCollection, select AllowTelemetry, change its value to 0, then apply.

• First, download the Take Ownership tweak and enable it. Then, head to the Hosts File by going through C:\Windows\System32\Drivers\Etc, take ownership of the hosts file, and add all of the IPs from this page into the file.

 

Up To You:

•Replace Microsoft Edge/Internet Explorer with Firefox, Chromium, or any forks/variations of them.

•Replace Windows Media Player with VLC or MPC-HC

•Replace Groove Music with Foobar2000, Winamp, or MusicBee.

•Replace Photos/Windows Photo Viewer with ImageGlass or IrfanView."
