Many have heard claims that Windows 11 is heavily “spying” on users. As a recent YouTube video on The PC Security Channel shows, Windows 11 does send massive amounts of data to its own and third-party servers.
Worst of all, the OS does this before the user even installs or opens their first app. The author of the channel used the Wireshark application to analyze network activity on two “clean” versions of Windows.
The first was the brand new Windows 11, and the second was the good old Windows XP. A quick analysis revealed that Windows 11 connects to many third-party servers and services, most of which do nothing but track for ads. And it’s worth noting that all of these actions take place on every Windows 11 computer out of the box, without prompting the user and before he tries to use the Internet.
Google Chrome extensions no longer threaten your favorite sites: you can disable them with one click
Google has begun testing a useful innovation for its proprietary browser. In an early test build of Chrome, an option was made available to quickly disable all extensions without switching to incognito mode.
This is especially useful in cases where one of the extensions breaks the website or causes unwanted behavior on the website. Previously, in such cases, it was possible to open a tab in Incognito mode, instead of disabling each potentially problematic extension in sequence.
Now, with one click, you can activate the switch and disable all active extensions for this website at once. The new toggle is available to all Chrome Canary 113 users under the Extensions menu.
In its current implementation, the user would also have to manually refresh the page to load the site without extensions. However, in a future version, Chrome will offer to reload the page automatically.
Google Play Store launches app sync across devices
Google has begun rolling out a useful new option to the Google Play Store online app store for its Android platform. Although there was no loud announcement about this, some users began to notice innovations in the “App and device management” section, which allows you to start synchronization between devices.
The “Sync apps with devices” option allows you to automatically install new apps on multiple devices at once. When the setting is activated, the user will see a list of all Android devices where he uses his Google account.
So far, the feature works in a limited way and works only for recently installed applications. Simply put, it does not replace the standard Google backup and restore process. The sync feature also does not apply to app updates. But even with these limitations, this feature can be quite useful.
