Windows 10 is faster, smoother and more user-friendly than any Windows operating system that has come before it. Windows 10 is everything Windows 8 should have been, addressing also major problems users had with Microsoft’s previous-generation platform (e.g. Windows Start Menu - have a look at our former project StartW8, more than 800 000 downloads).

But it’s not all good news, there’s something you should know: Windows 10 is also spying on nearly everything you do. And you agreed it in Microsoft’s 12,000 word service agreement by installing Windows 10...

By default Windows 10 is configured to track usage, location and other information and to send it to Microsoft servers. Such features aren’t always a bad thing, but opting in by default is strange user privacy policy. Since this is such a widely known issue, we have prepared a special tool you can use to simplify the process of taking your privacy back in Windows 10.

Notice: On September 14, 2015 has been launched new SODAT software tool - SODAT Privacy Protection Tool for Windows 10.
New features added and new languages included. For more information, see the Changelog on the page.
