    All OS’s want to know what hardware, software and method of connection to the Internet (Domain, Private, Public LAN, Wifi, Ethernet, Cellular. There is zero way of hiding what you do from the Alphabet agencies or a Software creator. Microsoft could care less about your shopping or browsing habits, unless you are doing something illegal.

    There are plenty of settings which a user can access easily that can limit the amount of data sent without the need for 3rd party apps that often cause more problems than they claim to resolve.
    Tightening up Firewall rukes and watching out for what third party software you use is the only way, or just not connecting to the Internet.
