Win10 Spy Disabler
Disable various Windows data collection technologies

Win10 Spy Disabler is a free tool which helps you disable Windows technologies used to collect data and telemetry.

Launch the program and it displays a list of 20+ "privacy tweaks" you can apply, covering Windows 10, and more general operating system and application settings: "Disable Spying Services", "Disable Telemetry & Data Collection", "Always Send DoNotTrack on IE/ Edge", "Block Microsoft Telemetry Hosts", "Disable Recent Files, Folders, Docs, Progs", "Disable Windows Geolocation Service", "Prevent Wifi Sense from connecting to open hotspots", and more.

There's not a lot of fine control here. "Disable Cortana, WebSearch, BingSearch" is a single option, for instance: if you only want to disable one of those, you're out of luck.

Still, if you just want to turn off a lot of features in the minimum of time, Win10 Spy Disabler gets the job done better than most.

There's also a "System Tweaks" option which gives easy access to more general Windows settings: "Show Hidden and System Files", "Disable Windows Remote Assistance", "Disable Windows Update P2P Distribution" and more.

The package also includes a "Hide IP Address" button and "VPN Service" tab. These are just ads for a VPN service, but don't let that put you off - they're not intrusive, and if you don't click them, you can carry on using the rest of the program as normal.

v1.4.0.0 - 25 March 2016

+ Fixed changing of startup type of services
+ Added option to undo selected changes (except apps removal)
+ Added more options to improve Windows 10 privacy
+ Added a new tab to singularly disable Windows tracking options
+ By default, are checked only the options to disable Windows tracking
+ Better organized options in more tabs
+ Improved main graphical user interface
+ Many fixes and improvements

Verdict:

Win10 Spy Disabler helps you change a lot of privacy and system-related settings, but some options apply multiple tweaks at once, and it's not always obvious what they're going to do. For experienced users only.

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.
