How to Stop Spying on Windows 10

Step 1: Download AntiSpy for Windows 10

To get started, you'll just need to download Ashampoo's utility, which is called AntiSpy for Windows 10. The software is completely free, and it can be downloaded from this link. Once the file is saved to your PC, go ahead and run it to get things going.
The software does not require a full installation, so as soon as you launch AntiSpy, you'll be asked to create a system restore point. To be on the safe side, go ahead and click "Yes" on this popup.

Step 2: Disable Unwanted Tracking Features

At this point, you're ready to disable all of the Windows 10 tracking features. AntiSpy lists every system option that is even remotely suspicious or privacy related, and all of the entries are written in plain English. If you'd like, you can go through these options one by one and turn the adjacent toggle switches off to disable the individual settings. To get an idea of the worst privacy-related options, please see our full list of fishy Windows 10 settings.
To make things even easier, though, I'd suggest that you click the "Action" button in the top-right corner of the window, then select "Set all recommended settings" and click "OK" on the popup. This will disable all of the worst offenders in one click, so you can rest a bit easier knowing that your computer isn't spying on your anymore.
