The new operating system from Microsoft – Windows 10, collects and sends some of the usage information to the Microsoft servers in order to improve the services and various other operating system components. But not everybody is happy with this and do not want their information to be sent over to Microsoft. In order to prevent this tracking in Windows 10, many tools have been released like the ones we covered earlier – DoNotSpy10 and the Windows 10 Tracking Disabler. But the makers of iconic anti-spyware software Spybot Search & Destroy are not happy with the developments. According to them, these tools are not stopping all the tracking in Windows 10. And therefore they have released a tool called Spybot Anti-Beacon that is able to stop the tracking in Windows 10 completely.
The Spybot Anti-Beacon tool is a portable software and when you launch it, it displays the status of various services (41 in total) that are considered responsible for tracking. You can simply click on the Immunize button to stop the tracking in these services and settings.
The immunization of your system takes just one second and everything is taken care of. You will see all the bars turn into green color to show that these tracking services, apps and settings have been configured to stop the tracking. Furthermore, it also gives the option to revert to former status by clicking on the Undo button.
In addition, you can find four-five more policies and services that you can optionally block from under the Optional tab, even though these services or policies may not be directly involved in the tracking.
The Spybot Anti-Beacon is a small portable tool that allows you to instantly stop the tracking service or apps and configure the related policies to block all levels of tracking in Windows 10. This is much more comprehensive tool compared to some other similar tools available online.
