Windows 10 Spying & Telemetry Blocking

Hi All

Is there a list available for blocking Windows 10 Spying & Telemetry connections? but still enabling the operating system to download & install windows patches.

Cheers

Did you already tried this list?

I have these two link in my adlist already.

Visit http://pi.hole/admin/queryads.php in your Pi-hole and check for

watson.telemetry.microsoft.com
settings-win.data.microsoft.com
telemetry.microsoft.com
telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
telemetry.urs.microsoft.com

Unfortunately I can’t tell you the URL of the lists with these entries because Pi-hole stupidly(!) just outputs

Match found in list.0.raw.githubusercontent.com.domains

This missing info of the full list-URL is really annoying.

I don’t think I have the domain.

the link “http://pi.hole/admin/queryads.php” is the same page you’re on now just a direct link to it.
On that page try the domains that @mibere suggested.

All current. turns out Firefox doesn’t like the query page works just in chrome.

I suggest you check out the WindowsSpyBlocker by crazy-max. You can block Windows 10 Spying & Telemetry but leave Update untouched.

Projects using WindowsSpyBlocker:
pi-hole : A black hole for Internet advertisements (designed for Raspberry Pi).

I wonder how?
