Windows 10’s Privacy Settings are Really Just “Spying” Settings

Mike Paczesny | The Rundown Live

Is Windows 10 Really Just a Government Backdoor?

Microsoft’s new service agreement states that,

“We will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to.”

It comes complete with a key logger that auto-shares everything with Microsoft.

Cortana, Microsoft’s personal virtual assistant is allowed to collect:

  • Your device location
  • Your email and text messages data
  • Your Calendar data
  • Apps you are using
  • Your contact list
  • Who’s calling you
  • With who you are in touch more often
  • Your alarm settings,
  • Your music on device
  • What you purchase
  • Your search history in case you’re using Bing search engine.

“To enable Cortana to provide personalized experiences and relevant suggestions, Microsoft collects and uses various types of data, such as your device location, data from your calendar, the apps you use, data from your emails and text messages, who you call, your contacts and how often you interact with them on your device.”

“Cortana also learns about you by collecting data about how you use your device and other Microsoft services, such as your music, alarm settings, whether the lock screen is on, what you view and purchase, your browsing and Bing search history, and more.”

At least why know why its free for millions of users now! You are the product!
