Windows 10 privacy issues
« on: September 18, 2019, 08:37:29 AM »
Hello,

Soon a friend of mine will install Win10 for me. Now I know there has been written a lot about the privacy issues in Win10. Do you know of a website where I can find the latest and correct information about dealing with those? I'd like to keep my computers as private as possible.

Thank you!

Lady

When you install Win 10 you get a number of items to select over their alternatives.

I just have Basic reporting on mine and find the second choice in most cases is the least intrusive.

If you Google for which privacy options should I choose in win 10 will produce a number of links for you to browse which will give you some guidance.

Thanks, Tom. I'll look for myself then.

My point was maybe you guys know a trusted site as there is SO much out there.  :omg: In other words, why inventing the wheel by myself again.

It's easier to point you to an article which will give the best advice rather than me typing everything out.

Of course. That's why I asked for a website. When I google your suggested line I get dozens of sites, not just one article.

Yes, that's what I got which is why I suggested Googling and then you can read them all to see which is the best.
