Debotnet 0.6.2 [Update]

Windows 10 Telemetry

Debotnet is a free and portable tool for controlling Windows 10's many privacy-related settings and keep your personal data private.

The Windows 10 default privacy settings leave a lot to be desired when it comes to protecting you and your private information. Whenever I set up a new computer or update a current setup for my family or job, I always carefully go through the privacy settings for each install, making sure to lock it down to make it as private as possible.

Windows 10 has raised several concerns about privacy due to the fact that it has a lot of telemetry and online features, which send your data (sensitive and not) to Microsoft and can't be disabled. Most of it seems pretty legit stuff when telemetry is set to basic. If you don't trust them, Debotnet can help you to prevent Windows 10 from sending your data to Microsoft.

The most important features at a glance

Debotnet will check here for pre-release versions if you use the "Check for updates" function. Nightly usually means that the release should be delivered every day at night. Debotnet will not get updates everyday. CURRENTLY THIS IS AN EXPERIMENTAL FUNCTION ONLY!)
