Many thanks for all the patience waiting for an update to Spybot Anti-Beacon!
We spent a lot of time working on Spybot 3. And now that Spybot Anti-Beacon will also be integrated into Spybot 3, we found time to continue work. Today’s update to Anti-Beacon 1.6 will add two new immunizers and a few new blocked hosts. More updates are already pending since we’re actively working on this feature again (including a new look, but mostly focused on function of course)!
Spybot Anti-Beacon 1.6 can be downloaded from here.
- Additional Telemetry Immunization Categories
- Additional Blocked Hosts
- Immunization of Office 13/16 Telemetry Scheduled Tasks and Options is possible even if Microsoft Office is not installed (previously they appeared to immunize correctly, but the immunization could not be undone in Anti-Beacon)
Don’t forget to always run Spybot Anti-Beacon as an administrator by right-clicking the downloaded installer, and choosing the option to “Run as administrator”. This will ensure that Anti-Beacon has the permissions it needs to function correctly.
