Hi all,

I came across this privacy and Windows 10 firewall application it allows you to stop some telemetry in Windows 10 and it has what looks like a very good Windows 10 firewall control built in. The dev is on MDL and this project is currently free and open source, from what I've read if there's enough interest this may become a paid application. I haven't tried it myself yet but it does look very interesting and I thought some users on MT may find it useful.

All credit goes to the Dev:

I hope some of you find it useful. I will be testing it out myself today. As stated above this application is currently free and open source and can be downloaded from Github.

I had some free time around the holidays so I made a privacy tool for windows, it features a complete management interface for the windows firewall and a tweak engine to set and monitor relevant options (GPOs, reg tweaks, removing execute permission from binaries, etc...) to block windows telemetry, and communication with M$ as far as reasonable.

The tweak collection is based on the Windows Restricted Traffic Limited Functionality Baseline, adding some custom tweaks, etc...

The Firewall management interface allows to control all relevant settings of the windows firewall, monitoring connections (including a blocked connection notification window), and to conveniently manage rules on a per group basis. Individual processes/services can be grouped together and controlled as one.

The tool can be downloaded from git hub:

My apologies if I've posted this in the wrong part of the forum.
