Protect your privacy the EASY way:

Now u dont want to be tracked all over the place and you do not like all these adverts? Go here:

http://someonewhocares.org/hosts/

grab the HOSTS file and paste it over your original one!

In windows you find it here: C:\windows\system32\drivers\etc\hosts

In linux you find it here: /etc/hosts

In mac you find it here: /private/etc/hosts

I also have www.google.com and www.facebook.com point to localhost 127.0.0.1 (and some other shadow domains)... its an easy quick way to absolutely BLOCK these tracking companies. If you are handy you might want to load this in your modem or router as well.

Good luck and have fun!

And then you use Windows 7-10 with all this Spyware implemented in Optional Updates.

Since they figured it out, that people gonna inform themself, before they make Updates, (to find out which Updates they should disable or hide), Microsoft sells the same TelemetrieSniffers as Security Updates.

The best way is to block all of them via Group policies.

Everybody is collecting datas. It doesn't matter, if a site is secured or not.

Windows 10 sends every 30 minutes all what you typed on your keyboard to 7 different servers. You shouldn't roll such a panic because simple HP is not secured.
