O&O ShutUp10 Receives New Features to Block Windows 10 Data CollectionO&O ShutUp10, an application that can disable all data collection processes in Windows 10 and turn off a little more than the options you see in the Settings screen of the operating system.
And thanks to an update released today, the program is even more effective, as it fixes a number of bugs but also introduces some new options.
O&O ShutUp10 1.3.1355 now comes with an option to disable the Network Connectivity Status Indicator (NCSI) and the Wi-Fi sense for all or just the currently logged-in user. Wi-Fi Sense is a Windows 10 feature that allows your device to automatically connect to wireless networks that have previously been used by your friends on Facebook, Outlook.com, or Skype.
Passwords for these networks are securely transmitted between contacts on Windows 10, so this way, you can remain connected all the time when known networks are discovered.
The same version of the app also comes with improvements to the SmartScreen filter, but also several other bug fixes, so in case you’ve experienced issues with a previous release, this is the right moment to update.
Remember that Microsoft does not recommend anyone to turn to such apps because they could affect the performance and reliability of the operating system. Some features might be disabled, including Windows Update, which is a critical service to make sure that your computer is fully protected against the latest threats and vulnerabilities.
If you don’t mind taking these risks, you can always download O&O ShutUp10 and enable its privacy protection features to make sure no information leaves your PC without your authorization.
