WPD (Windows Privacy Dashboard; DotNET)

Submit portable freeware that you find here. It helps if you include information like description, extraction instruction, Unicode support, whether it writes to the registry, and so on.

WPD (Windows Privacy Dashboard; DotNET)

#1 Post by Midas » Fri Jul 07, 2017 9:26 am

WPD (i.e., Windows Privacy Dashboard; https://getwpd.com/) is a DotNET (v4.0) system utility that claims portability (untested!) and is compatible from Windows 7 upwards.

You can customize Group Policy, Services and Tasks responsible for data collection and transmission as you like. And furthermore, if you want, you can block a bunch of Microsoft's IP’s to which data is sent. WPD is free, totally portable, has a nice user-friendly interface and doesn't contain any advertisement or malicious code.

now at v1.3.23 - (Oct 29th 2019)

looks useful - is the only reason its not added is that it requires Dot NET?

While I personally prioritize programs that aren't dotNET, there's no policy against them. I am a bit leery that this program is actually portable just because it seems to (based on the limited documentation) have firewall functionality, something that usually involves registry writes.

I'd also like to see more documentation, screenshots, and a license.

Just a note that this program was updated back in July to v.1.3.1577 (https://wpd.app/changelog/). It's currently my windows privacy tool of choice and I'll try to get it into the database sometime soon.

You could use the following to quickly jump between various standard privacy settings:

-default - normal settings
-recommended - standard privacy that's less likely to interfere with your controls
-privacyAll - full privacy

Because Microsoft updates often re-enable telemetry services, it might make sense to run one of the above either regularly or at boot-up.
