    Question Does anti-beacon have to run constantly

    Does anti-beacon have to run constantly, that is, with the window open to be fully protected?
    Surely there is a background task / service that handles this and I do not have to keep this spybot anti-beacon window open the entire time???

    No, you do not need to keep the anti-beacon window open all the time.

    This is a quote from comments on the anti-beacon video:
    i presume it need to be running to work?

    No, it applies changes to system settings that are usually persistent. We would recommend to run it after Windows and other software updates to make sure those updates haven't reset these settings.
