When Windows 10 first launched, it hit a lot of people that Microsoft had tucked some pretty odd settings away that seemed to be an invasion of user privacy. Most people just install the OS with the default option, not even realizing that they’re agreeing to let Microsoft find out a little bit too much about them.
Don’t worry, though, because we have a free eBook that will break down everything you need to know about Windows 10 privacy.
This free eBook is available today (12/23) only! Don’t miss out!

What’s Covered In ‘Preserving Your Privacy in Windows 10’?
This is a nice quick read (around 20 pages), that covers everything you need to know about your privacy in Windows 10. There are some pretty big changes between this and the previous version of Windows, and they most certainly aren’t just cosmetic. If you quickly click “Next” through the installation process, you are letting Microsoft get some access that you might not want them to have.
Thankfully, if you take your time, you can choose to turn off these privacy-invading settings. There are a lot of them, which is why you’ll want to download this free eBook, as it will take you through every option you’ll face during your Windows 10 upgrade. From there, it will show you all of the things you’ll want to turn off after you’re actually in the OS.
It’s quite surprising how many things you might want to disable, and to be honest, it would be quite hard to find them all on your own. Your best bet is to download this eBook before you start the process, open it on another device, and follow the book as you go. This way, you can rest easy knowing that your Windows 10 installation is not giving away anything you don’t want to.
