How to Stop Windows 10 From Spying on You

Windows 10 is Spyware

This operating system comes with several programs that track everything you do and sends the information through the internet. The Real Strategy reported on this when Windows 10 first released. Read the article “Downloading Windows 10 Basically Installs Spyware”. If you care about your privacy or anonymity you will have to make some changes to your daily computer operations. There are several options.

One option is to remove Windows completely and install Tails

If you would like to learn more about Tails and what this operating system can do for you read the article “How To Stop Google From Spying on You”. There is much more information in that article about safe internet browsing and limiting your exposure while on the web.
