Currently, one of them major obstacles pending by resolve for the creators of them systems operating existing both in tablets as in smartphones, is it security and them failures in matter of privacy. On previous occasions I discussed that Android has received criticism from thousands of users all over the world to feel vulnerable to the possibility that dozens of harmful elements, can enter into their devices and wreak havoc. The great weight of the software of the robot Green is a factor of risk very attractive for those hackers.

Currently, both Android and Windows 10 applications acquire personal data about the users to download them. On the other hand, the display of content via sites like Youtube or the use of the same apps, generates a series of information that is mainly used by companies for advertising. If we like to keep our privacy, from the platform of the Redmond can control what we offer and what not. To do this, just go to “settings” and a time within, to “Privacy“.

There will find an icon called “accounts” that will give access to another called “options of home of session” in which we can create more key.
3 list of applications
As mentioned above, installed apps may collect personal data to be sent to third parties. This can assume a vulnerability important in matter of privacy since in many cases, the data personal not only are saved and used by them own creators of them platforms, but just in hands of companies and institutions of all type. A common remedy both Android and Windows is the deletion of all the tools installed. In the case of the 10 version of the platform of the Redmond, we can go further and take greater control in the software. In the address bar, type the command “Shell:AppsFolder“, which will give us access to all applications and will allow us to modify them.

Going to “Configuration” and deploying this tool-related options, can mute the voice entries and at the same time, some patterns that make Hibernate Cortana and that disable it when the tablet or computer in question are being controlled or blocked.
While we find significant improvements in the operating systems most used in the world, the truth is that these advances can be a double-edged weapon which, although they seem to benefit the public at first, in the long run may have negative consequences for the users, since they can be in the hands of many companies and organizations. Do you think that with these tips you can get greater protection and minimize exposure to all risks?
