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. In previous occasions you discussed that Android has received critical from thousands of users of all the world to the feel is vulnerable to the possibility of that dozens of elements harmful, can enter in their devices and cause havoc. The great weight of the software of the robot Green is a factor of risk very attractive for those hackers.

But for many, Windows 10 is a benchmark in terms of protection, the truth is that it also has some vulnerabilities that can generate bad experiences of use. Whether firms using personal data of users, or by the creators of malware, the interface created by Microsoft must also overcome a series of setbacks to achieve a greater acceptance among the public not only professional, but also domestic.

On the other hand, the display of content through portals as Youtube or the use of the same apps, generates a series of information that is used mainly by companies with late advertising.

To activate it, we must enter the “home” menu and “settings“. 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 previously, the apps installed can collect data personal to send them to third. 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 remedy common both in Android as in Windows is the deletion of all the tools installed. In the case of the version 10 of the platform of them of Redmond, can go more beyond and take a greater control in the software.

Accessing to “configuration” and deploying them options related with this tool, can silence them tickets of voice and to the same time, control some patterns that make Hibernate to Cortana and that it disabled when the tablet or computer in question are loading is or blocked.
While find improvements important in them systems operating more used of the world, it true is that these advances can be a weapon of double edge that, although seem to benefit to the public in a first moment, to the long can have consequences negative for them users, since can stay in hands of crowd of companies and organizations. You think that with these tips is can get a greater protection and minimize the exposure to all them risks? Believe that never will be possible find a protection complete by the own interest of the creators of the software by not guarantee it?
