"The real danger is the gradual erosion of individual liberties through automation, integration, and interconnection of many small, separate record-keeping systems, each of which alone may seem innocuous, even benevolent, and wholly justifiable."
- Anonymous, U. S. Privacy Study Commission, 1977
Don't want Windows spying on your every move? Don't feel like spending hours messing with privacy settings that ultimately still result in data collection? Think your private information belongs to you and no one else? Or maybe you just want a faster PC and don't like all the new "features" Windows has to offer.
We think so too, so we made Blackbird V6
Blocks Telemetry Completely
Block Windows spyware, on both the application and network level, without editing the HOSTS file or firewall settings and remove all Windows telemetry updates.
Supports Wireless and Ethernet connections, IPv4/IPv6.
Removes Windows Ads
Remove all Windows built-in advertising and any preinstalled app you want. Stop your PC from downloading and installing sponsored software in the background.
Get Blackbird and keep your device nag-free.
Prevent diagnostic data, passwords, contacts, URL, SMS, handwritting, location, and P2P-update sharing. Remove all unique ID tracking tokens.
Disable 60+ data collection tasks and consequently speed up your PC.
Portable, Restorable, Flexible
No installation, with a focus on leaving the smallest possible footprint, Blackbird is a single, portable exe with granular switches available. Want to restore everything back? We got you covered.

Free & Ad-free Forever
We do not collect ANY data from our software and all website logs are purged twice a day.
