Gaming is more fun when everyone plays fairly. Windows will share system info with games using TruPlay to make sure everything runs the way is was meant to.

TruePlay, formerly called Game Monitor, provides developers with a new set of tools to combat cheating within their PC games.

A game enrolled in TruePlay will run in a protected process, which mitigates a class of common attacks. Additionally, a Windows service will monitor gaming sessions for behaviors and manipulations that are common in cheating scenarios. These data will be collected, and alerts will be generated only when cheating behavior appears to be occurring. To ensure and protect customer privacy while preventing false positives, these data are only shared with developers after processing has determined cheating is likely to have occurred.

The TruePlay APIs for the Universal Windows Platform (UWP) allow limited interaction between games and the game monitoring system on Windows 10 PCs.

This tutorial will show you how to turn on or off TruePlay to combat game cheating for your account in Windows 10.
