Protect your privacy with Disable Nvidia Telemetry


Microsoft and Windows may get most of the flak for collecting data on its users, but other companies also have issues. Nvidia’s GeForce Experience made headlines last year, thanks to some extensive data collection abilities of its own.

How extensive? Nvidia says “the application collects… hardware configuration, operating system, language, installed games, game settings, game usage, game performance, and current driver version…  GeForce Experience does not share any personally identifiable information outside the company (link).”

If you’re not reassured, Disable Nvidia Telemetry is an open-source application which can disable one or more of Nvidia’s telemetry services and tasks.

The interface is basic, but probably "good enough". You can select some or all of the services and tasks, and disable them with a click.

An Event Log records exactly what the program has done.

Your tweaks shouldn’t have any significant effect, but if there are problems, a "Restore Defaults" button should get the system working as usual.

Disable Nvidia Telemetry is available for Windows 7 and later.
