Tweak Manager: System Security

If you want to handle the security and privacy settings of your Windows PC the way you see fit, the System Security category of BoostSpeed’s Tweak Manager is what you need.

Since the early days of Windows, users have always nursed concerns about their personal data being probed and gathered by Microsoft. While Windows 11 comes with many performance improvements and extra layers of security, users won’t settle because some of the probes from previous Windows versions have found their way into the OS.

Reports of web-based attacks designed to help hackers get away with sensitive information have also put users on edge. Everyone is now concerned about how to stay secure online.

With Tweak Manager: System Security, you can dilute these concerns, as the tool provides powerful tweaking options that will help you close loopholes and stay in charge of how much privilege applications (such as your web browser) on your PC are allowed to have.

How to protect personal data on Windows?

If you want to use Tweak Manager, download Auslogics BoostSpeed now.

To launch the tool, head to the All Tools tab in Auslogics BoostSpeed, then go to System Tools and find Tweak Manager. Once Tweak Manager is fired up, the Auslogics Tweak Manager dialog will pop up with the following message:

“Program is running in Beginner mode. Would you like to switch to Expert mode and get access to an extended list of options?”

The dialog will go on to tell you that switching to the Expert mode will help you tweak more features but advanced Windows skills are required. You can enter the Expert mode to check out the options available to you, and if you feel they`re too much for you, go to the Settings interface and switch back to the Beginner mode. You can grow used to the app and learn how to use the advanced features better as time goes on.

Switch to the left pane of the Tweak Manager interface to find the System Security category.

Click on System Security or click on the arrow beside it to find entries such as:

  • UAC
  • Privacy Policy
  • Windows Defender
  • User Tracking
  • Application Rights
  • Logon
  • Location

Tweaks to improve security

These subcategories contain many different options that will allow you to tweak your Windows security settings and change and add certain privacy policies. You`ll get to tweak the User Account Control behavior, make changes to Windows Defender (Windows Security), determine the rights of various applications, fine-tune your login environment, and change location settings, amongst others.

Once you open a category, you`ll find checkboxes and radio buttons in the main window of Tweak Manager for the tweaks you can apply. Towards the bottom of the main window is the description of each subcategory with suggestions and recommendations.

Indicators for each tweak appear under the description. They tell you the particulars of the option you want to choose. The indicators will specify whether you need to restart your PC for a particular tweak, the impact a tweak will have on your PC (Lite, Moderate, or Power), whether a tweak falls under the Beginner or Expert mode, and the level of risk for each tweak (Basic or Advanced).

Try not to apply too many tweaks at once. Making your changes one after the other will let you know which setting causes any issue on your operating system. You can then use the Rescue Center in BoostSpeed to revert your changes if need be.

Windows security and privacy have never been more straightforward and streamlined. With time, you`ll get to master every aspect of the app and take full control of your system. We also recommend that you use Uninstall Manager for Windows if you are planning to get rid of unused apps and bloatware.

Industry Acclaimed

Auslogics software is recognized by leading IT magazines and online resources

Mark Oakley, Micro Mart (issue 1035, p.56)
"This system optimization tool suite takes an everything-plus-the-kitchen-approach to cleaning, optimizing, and potentially speeding up your PC. Auslogics BoostSpeed includes modules and wizards for just about any kind of tweak or optimization you can imagine..." "It is almost impossible to manually remove junk files and registry errors, but there are some handy tools out there that can do it for you. One of them is Aulsogics BoostSpeed. With this program you can maintain your PC at top speed with just a click of a button once a week." "To prevent system slowdown from happening, regular defragmentation of your disk and registry is recommended. You can defragment your disk with the built-in tool from Microsoft, however we recommend using the faster and more avdnaced version in Auslogics BoostSpeed." "Removing junk files manually can be a tedious process, but a nifty software from down under called Auslogics BoostSpeed can do it for you automatically. It will remove junk files and optimize the one-sit-fit-all Windows settings to your hardware. For additional speed boost it will fix registry errorrs and optimize your Internet settings." "Of all the optimisation tools I've tested over the past few years, I'm happy to write that Auslogics BoostSpeed is one of the most comprehensive and user friendly, ... I couldn't recommend it highly enough." "BoostSpeed is an effective all-encompassing utility suite, combining some of Auslogics' popular freeware titles with services that they don't offer elsewhere... No doubt, BoostSpeed gives you your money's worth." "Another source of identity theft are files with sensitive information. Simply deleting them doesn't make them go for good. It's quite easy to "undelete" them and use in ways you probably will not be happy about. But if you delete a file, or a folder with Auslogics' File Shredder, you can be sure that they will be impossible to recover." "This meticulously written application is an ideal solution for anyone who wants to boost their computer for peak performance without costly hardware upgrades. BoostSpeed gives you a combination of 15 precision-engineered modules to clean-up and defragment your computer disks, fix registry errors and speed up internet connection." "Think of the best PC speedup suite you've tried. And then add more. More tools. More features. More depth, more extras, and more thought behind everything. That'll give you some idea of what to expect from this excellent program..." "All in one performance tool for your PC that is very easy to use." "Auslogics BoostSpeed will give you the ideal solution to keep your computer running smooth and fast." "Auslogics BoostSpeed can protect you from identity theft. Being a useful computer optimization tool, it also includes a number of very useful privacy and security applications. It offers advanced protection where anti-virus software can't help." "You can clean up, optimize and defragment your PC using Auslogics's OneButton Checkup. Tests showed an impressive performance improvement on a 4-year old laptop and its optimization techniques should work for a much newer computer, too." "Auslogics BoostSpeed is a reliable utility that can optimize Windows 10 with one click. It helps to remove junk, clean your registry, defragment drives, disable unnecessary apps, and much more." "... Any maintenance or optimisation task can be easily handled with this powerful and effective software suite. Add to that the privacy protection, data recovery and over a dozen other tools, and you will hardly ever need to look for another program to keep your PC humming along nicely."
