Protect your privacy on Windows 10 with ShutUp10
Quote
Some users are not particularly happy with Windows 10 due to privacy concerns, and this probably won’t change anytime soon. Not everyone knows how to keep Windows 10’s privacy issues under control, and as such, this is where a freeware known as ShutUp10 comes into play. We have already see how you can change Windows 10 Privacy settings.  That should suffice for most, but Microsoft has gone on record and said that Windows 10 data collection cannot be stopped.

Another point of view:
Why You Shouldn’t Use “Anti-Spying” Tools for Windows 10

"Rather than relying on some tool to change the settings for you, learn what Windows 10’s privacy settings do and change them yourself. They’re a bit scattered throughout Windows 10, but they’re not hard to find if you have a good guide. Run through our list of the various options that “phone home” on Windows 10 and you can disable them in a safe way."
