Windows 10 has a dedicated Privacy setting, which details almost everything that can be changed to make sure data is not being transferred to anywhere without your concern. Windows 10 comes with a pre-defined set of settings that you can change. The problem with Windows 10 Privacy setting is that there are too many steps to manage it. That’s where third-party privacy tweaker apps like Spydish comes into the picture.
Spydish helps change Windows 10 Privacy Settings
Spydish is a portable application which displays a list of all available Windows 10 Privacy in simple words. That is crucial. Most of the privacy settings are not easy to understand, and if you can read them all in an understandable language, managing them becomes a lot easier.
Like our Ultimate Windows Tweaker, this application displays the most critical Windows 10 Privacy Policies and performs a quick check. Active policies are marked with the status “Configured” as in the Group Policy Editor. Privacy Policies which are not configured are displays, and users can change the status. The best part of this third party app is that it is easy to use and has no jargon to confuse users. You check against policy to make it active and uncheck if you want to disable it.
Once you launch the application, it displays a list of essential privacy policies on the left side. One the right, you get access to the Analyze button. It will go through all of them, and the ones which are essential and not configured are displayed. Those configured are marked with a green status.
The Revert Policies button will set everything to default i.e., settings with which Windows is shipped. Lastly, if you make any change using the checkboxes on the left side, use the Apply policies button to confirm.
Here is the list of status the app offers:
- Analyze Determines which policies and settings are enabled and configured on your system or not. NO system changes are done yet!
- Apply policies: This will enable all selected policies.
- Revert policies: This will restore the default Windows 10 policies.
- Status > Configured: This indicates your privacy is protected.
- Status > Not Configured: This indicates that the Windows 10 settings are in place.
