What’s new in System Mechanic 20.5? Back to the top

Enhanced Privacy Guardian:

New! Disable Cortana virtual assistant

This commonly used feature sends to Microsoft enormous amounts of data related to precisely how you use your computer.

New! Disable camera and microphone access

When access to these tools is enabled by default, you are allowing all of the apps on your computer access to them. Many types of malicious attacks access camera and microphone through vulnerable apps, to spy on you or steal your personal information.

New! Disable activity history collection

This feature, particularly when the Send my activity history to Microsoft box is also checked, risks exposing unknown quantities of information on how you use the apps and services on your computer.

New! Phishing Detector

This new technology within Privacy Guardian looks to see whether incoming email is from a proxy DNS server, a common indicator of potential phishing attacks as the sender attempts to mask their identifying information, such as true IP address.

Enhanced! Digital Fingerprinting Protection

Privacy Guardian has been re-engineered to help stop aggressive new online tracking, profiling and data-mining methods that can detect and collect very specific information about you and your computer use. One click turns on this powerful new online protection.


Enhanced In-product Tutorial walks you through even more ways you can optimize your internet privacy, including:

  • Enabling Fingerprinting Protection to thwart the newest forms of online tracking

  • Disabling more Windows® data-sharing features, including:

  • Cortana
