Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10
Take control of Windows 10 privacy settings

Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10 is a free portable tool which makes it easy to see and adjust Windows 10's many privacy-related settings.

On launch the program immediately asks if you'd like to create a Restore Point, welcome protection in case of problems later.

The AntiSpy interface is a single dialog box with a list of settings, a very brief description of each one, and buttons to turn them off or on.

The program can tweak more than 40 options, covering browsing, updates, location features, webcam/ microphone access, Cortana, Contacts and Calendar, and assorted telemetry settings.

Experts can toggle settings individually, and there are also options to disable everything, or all but a few recommended features. There's no telling quite what this might break, so it's good to see the program can restore your default settings, too.

Verdict:

Ashampoo AntiSpy for Windows 10 gives you easy access to a lot of settings, and enables them to be tweaked individually or all at once. It would be helpful to have more information on the features you're disabling, but otherwise this is a useful tool.

WhatsApp Messenger 2.17.31

Free Full Commercial Software

WhatsApp Messenger is the world's most popular instant messaging app for smartphones.

You can use it to send and receive text and voice messages, photos, videos, even call your friends in other countries, and because it uses your phone's internet connection it might not cost you anything at all (depending on whether you'll pay data charges).

It's easy to set up and use. There's no need to create and remember new account names or pins because it works with your phone number, and uses your regular address book to find and connect you with friends who use WhatsApp already.

You can talk one-to-one or in group chats, and because you're always logged in there's no way to miss messages. Even if your phone is turned off, WhatsApp will save your messages and display them as soon as you're back online.

There's plenty more (location sharing, contact exchange, message broadcasting) and the app is free for a year, currently $0.99/ year afterwards.

What's New in Version 2.17.31

• Add color filters to your media. Just capture or select a photo, video, or GIF, and swipe up to pick a filter.
• When you receive multiple photos from the same sender in a row, they'll now be grouped together as an album.
• New reply shortcut: simply swipe right in any message to quickly reply to it.
