Once its main window is accessed, you can simply press a button and leave it to the app to stop all processes related to any activity tracking. It displays a log file that can be examined by all those who are interested in all the tasks it performs, but users do not have any control over these actions.
Remove one or more Windows 10 apps
Another handy feature of Destroy Windows 10 Spying is that it offers you the possibility to get rid of several native Windows 10 programs.
More precisely, you can remove XBox, Solitaire, OneDrive, Mail, Calendar, People or Builder 3D, as well as various media tools (namely News, Weather or Sports).
You only need to check the box corresponding to each of these applications and wait until Destroy Windows 10 Spying automatically removes them.
Clear or open hosts file
You can also turn to this utility when you want to access the hosts file from your Windows 10 computer or just clear all its contents.
Additionally, you can access the Privacy options directly from this application and manually disable further settings. The downside of this method is that you be a tech-savvy user to make sure your actions are safe.
All in all, Destroy Windows 10 Spying can be used by all those who are worried about their privacy when using Windows 10. Since the app does not come with many customizable functions, it is more suited for beginner users as they simply need to press a button and disable the tracking.
