There's been plenty of commotion over W10's privacy terms. i am certain these strategies will change/improve at any time, however here's a guide that ought to hopefully provide you with a comparatively a lot of personal, safe experience, but at the prospect of not having the ability to relish a number of W10's options.


Before/During Installation

  2. Just use a local account with Windows 10(Very Important).


After Installation


1. Head to Settings >> Privacy, and disable everything, unless there are some stuff you actually need.
