    You may want to reconsider using that program. Everything it does in terms of stopping "spying" can easily be done manually.
    That assumes the user knows how to do them manually. It's just makes things convenient and may help avoid missing items.

    Is there a downside to using it?

    Found the solution to my original question about the anniversary update failing with "something went wrong". There apparently is some kind of conflict between the update and Wi-Fi connection.

    Hope this helps someone else.
