    How do we make our laptop is not under constant surveillance?


    How do we make sure that our keystrokes in Windows 10 is not being logged and our laptop is not under constant surveillance?

    Hi there.

    A quick googling came up with a few articles on this subject. This article is fairly recent.

    The first thing I would do is stick to reading factual tech news sites or stop listening to the people who have been giving you advice in the past.

    If you plan to use Windows 10, then just use it and go on about your day. There's nothing to worry about at all. Use common sense and have a good anti-virus software package installed.

    I would rather use built in Windows functions to control this rather than rely on third party utilities of possible dubious provenance.

    White listing security software is one general possibility- only approved programs are allowed to run. (That's not provided by Windows)

    Application Whitelisting simply blocks anything and everything that is not trusted by the user. Advanced ransomware never stood a chance if it needs to run.

    Currently I'm running SecureAPlus alongside Avast (free) - quite impressed. Good support, responsive, and a forum.
