Windows 10 Users and Experts Raise Privacy Concerns

In less than a week since the global release of Windows 10, the latest desktop operating system from Microsoft is getting criticized by privacy advocates and users alike. Some are even saying that the real price of Windows 10 – which is being marketed as a free upgrade – is actually users’ privacy.

Windows 10 comes with a plethora of new features including the digital voice assistant Cortana among others. But the way many of these new tools work raises questions about users’ privacy.

The new Wi-Fi Sense that allows others to automatically connect to your Wi-Fi network is especially being criticized ut there are other security concerns as well.

  1. Yeah, After just installing Win 10 ‘upgrade’ on a machine, I have come to the same conclusion, especially if, as seems to be expected, you accept the defaults.
    Even with declining these defaults and setting most options to ‘off’, I expect much information still finds its way to MS servers
