The launch of a new version of an operating system always brings us news related to its operation, be it errors, news, problems ... One of the news that attracted the most attention had to do with the privacy of users, privacy that I saw enormously exposed as soon as Windows 10 was installed as it allowed us to share most of our data with the company, be it our way of using it, what we look for, what we do ... Fortunately, Windows 10 allowed us to solve this problem that affected privacy of users modifying some configuration parameters, but for many users it was a nuisance and in the end they lower it as is.
Fortunately, some developers concerned about this problem have created some applications that automatically modify the necessary parameters so that our version of Windows 10 is not dedicated to sharing with Microsoft our way of interacting on the PC. From within all the available options, we have to highlight the one created by the Swiss company modero. The application Fix Windows 10 Privacy, as the name indicates, is a free open source tool that allows us to modify all the values that affect privacy automatically, ensuring that our privacy is maintained.
To do this, it modifies 130 rules, nothing more and nothing less, many of them imperceptible to most users. But those that attract the most attention and that offer a greater amount of data to Microsoft are related to Windows telemetry, location data, Cortana, and OneDrive, although for the latter they just have to take a look at our account to know what we do or stop doing with our Microsoft cloud account. Thanks to Mix Windows 10 Privacy we will prevent Microsoft from having access to a large volume of data about us.
