    OK, sure. But AppArmor doesn't send stuff to the mothership.

    Yes, different AV vendors have different approach when it comes to your data. Also, changing default settings in their product usually changes what data is shared.,

    EDIT: thnx for sharing mirimir. Interesting read.

    yeah, and better off using no av/m. esp. the cloud based ones.

    we all know that the majority of people (call them average joe/jane, if you like) use their av sw's with default settings, let alone os's. they're like "if it's working, don't fix it".

    Yes, I agree that's the case with most users. I was just wondering if there are any options to set up Windows differently.

    Combining the two terms "Windows 10" and "privacy" is oxymoronic, since Windows 10 probably provides its users with little to no real privacy. And searching for privacy on Windows is a futile effort. And searching for privacy online , or with any device that can connect to the Internet, is overall a futile effort because most people well informed on OpSec should know , by now, how much survelliance and control the government has over the Internet. And slowly, year by year the Internet becomes less and less private, and more and more like a panopticon where tptb can see everything you do, at all times.

    All too true. But at least we have VPNs and Tor, and so can compartmentalize and make it harder to identify us and track us down.
