The Watchdog - Spyware beware!

The goal of this website is to classify spyware programs, so that users can be aware that they are installing spyware. Most modern programs that people use today contain malicious spyware features, such as any form of telemetry or information collection of users. This website contains articles on popular programs and internet services explaining spyware features, so that potential users can be aware of the information they may be giving away by downloading or using spyware, using easy to understand ratings and detailed explanations and proofs of how the features of these programs can spy on the user.
