    Security and Anonymity in Windows 10


    We all know that there is a change in MS terms and with windows 10 we leave more trace of our activity.
    I was hoping some tips from our advanced users on how to secure and close whatever compromise our
    anonymity and security using windows 10.

    Also tips on what browser can allow you more anonymous search and brows would be great too. How can you
    search google and brows in total anonymity?

    There's a load of stuff, usually buried under links, in the Settings pages and beyond. But I'll give you these as priority items:

    Disable the WiFi password sharing and peer-to-peer update hosting for starters.

    Disable the 'diagnostic and usage' data that gets sent to Microshaft (Settings->Privacy->Feedback & diagnostics).

    Create a new registry value in:

    HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Policies\Microsoft\Windows\DataCollection

    AllowTelemetry = 0

    Then disable two services: Diagnostics Tracking Service & dmwappushsvc.

    Thanks for these great tips Nus. I had already done the privacy settings but disabling Telemetry was new for me
