Spydish is a tiny program for Windows 10 by the developer of Debotnet and SharpApp designed to provide a quick overview of important Group Policy privacy settings.

The privacy tool has been released as a beta by its developer. Interested users may download the latest version of the application from the developer's GitHub project site. It is a 35 Kilobyte zip archive that you need to unpack once it has been downloaded to the local system. You may run it from any location without installation. Note that it requires administrative privileges.

It's flagged by SecureAge APEX, MaxSecure and Qihoo 360 on VirusTotal

Although the article states there are means to revert to defaults, when it comes to GPO, do not be a fool like I was and mess around without a snapshot of the system.
Misuse of these types of "Anti-Spy" apps can be dangerous. Such as; lack of proper documentation, no warnings, break core functionality and, or make the OS insecure.

* Sorry didn't see the previous posted threat about this! *

New tool just updated and released. Reminds me of Sharpapp somewhat and also O&O Shutup to a degree but quicker and simpler. Tell me your thoughts!



Spydish

The Spydish app is the simplest and easiest way to perform a quick privacy check and set the recommended settings. Next to this it allows you also to debloat Windows 10.
Spydish integrates the most important Windows 10 privacy policies and allows you to quickly perform a privacy check against these policies. Active policies are marked with the status "Configured" as in the Group Policy Editor and indicates that your privacy is protected. The inactive ones are declared as "Not configured". All available policies can be enabled as well as disabled.

It didn't worked well in LTSC, I set telemetry level to 0 in gpedit and it reports that telemetry is set to full.
Telemetry is detected by 3 settings and it looks for a nonexistent service "dmwappushsvc". It should be "dmwappushservice". MS loves to rename services.
