More issues are being raised over Windows 10 and how Microsoft is treating the privacy of users who have purchased or taken the free upgrade to its new operating system. In a recent speech, Yusuf Mehdi, Corporate Vice President, Windows and Devices Group at Microsoft, hinted that the data collection effort is enormous. Yet most Windows 10 users do not realize how much spying is being done every time they click the mouse.
The Windows 10 installation process leaves some pretty intrusive options on by default, unless you opt to customise the install and know what you’re doing with these settings. And of course Microsoft ran into hot water over a bug in the major November update for the OS which reset privacy options to their dubious defaults, even if you had turned them off initially.
