Much has been made about potential privacy invasions in Windows 10. If it's something you're worried about, here's a free tool for managing the operating system's privacy features.
Windows 10 has plenty of features that some people worry invade their privacy, such as advertising tracking, autocomplete, Web page prediction, diagnostics, and Wi-Fi Sense. Personally, I'm not convinced that Windows 10 is a big privacy-invader. However, there are plenty of people who don't share my point of view. And that's where SlimCleaner Plus comes in.
SlimCleaner Plus, and its companion utility, SlimCleaner, are designed to help you slim down how Windows operates --- Windows 10 as well as previous Windows versions. They clean out unneeded files and junk, optimize Windows startup, let you customize how Windows works, and more. SlimCleaner is free, while SlimCleaner Plus, which offers more features, costs $29.95 per year.
A new version of SlimCleaner is out, and it has one big new addition --- it lets you easily change Windows 10 settings that might impact your privacy. For a limited time, you can download it and use its Windows 10 privacy setting feature for free.
Using it is exceedingly simple. Install it, click the Privacy button, and make your changes. They take effect immediately. To change them back, simply undo those changes.
It's not clear for how long these privacy features will be available for free. So if you want them, now is the time to download. For SlimCleaner and SlimCleaner Plus, head here.
