Spy Block

Below are the results after just over a month of blocking the URL’s.

This is the same computer. The date format is in a European format in the second image, because I changed the computer used to create this test to a European date format to help prevent any silly date related bugs.

SpyBlock48_forbiddenThe Spy Block page contains a list of all IP Addresses you have requested WinPrivacy to block, the domain to which the address resolves, the number of times any program has been blocked attempting to access that URL and the timestamp of the last time a program tried to access the URL.

Why is this page useful?

Say you have a program you really like, but you discover it is sending data off of your computer. No problem. Determine the URL by activating Save Connection History and then reviewing what the program is doing. Once you determine the URL, enter it here and WinPrivacy will automatically block all connections to and from that url/port combination.

Or, maybe you’ve upgraded to Windows 10 and you’ve heard the horror stories about it phoning home. Simply lookup the most recent list of domains, enter them here and no more phoning home.

What does "Anonymous License" mean anyway?

Anonymous License

Simple. We don't know who you are and we don't care. We simply want to provide you with a great product at a great price. Like walking into a store with cash in your pocket and walking out with what you want.

When you purchase any of our products, our cart processors need to request enough information to process the order and to meet tax regulations. In other words, we need to be able to summarize all orders by county for the State of Florida where we are located. No details. We only access this summarized data at tax time.

We DO NOT receive ANY personal information, including your email address, domicile address, or even country of purchase. Our cart processors simply ask us to give them a license to send to you in exchange for processing the order.

This means unlike companies like Facebook, Google, most security products and most other companies on the Internet, we don't track you in the name of "marketing".

  • We don't collect your information.
  • We don't sell your information.
  • We don't give your information away.

We respect your privacy.
