Microsoft on Windows 10 Privacy Violation Claims We’re Not Spying on Users

On Monday, Microsoft delivered its first comprehensive response. Even normally sober publications like PC World succumbed to the hysteria, offering advice on "how to turn off Windows 10's keylogger," adding parenthetically, "Yes, it still has one". Issues can be reported at Microsoft's website or though the Insiders program.

Myerson says Microsoft has used the data collected to roll out reliability fixes to Windows 10 "within 24 hours" of a particular crash.

Microsoft has announced that it is promoting Windows 10 in china and Baidu could not upgrade to windows 10 at present, therefore China is cooperatively working with Microsoft for up gradation work.

Windows 10 adopters of the long-term servicing branch won't be getting regular feature upgrades. You can disable this by updating your settings.

In a blog post over at Blogging Windows, Microsoft's Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group Terry Myerson attempts to alleviate the onslaught of concern that has been expressed in the last few weeks over the information Microsoft collects from Windows 10 systems and how it is handled.

Microsoft has been accused of lacking transparency in how it logs your keystrokes, shares access to your Wi-Fi network, uses your Internet connection to help other Windows 10 customers download updates, and forbids you from turning off all information sharing. It also collects information about your computer's performance to detect and correct potential bugs.

It's great to see that Microsoft has heard the complaints from its user base and is still open to suggestions thought the Windows Feedback app, but I'm not sure this will be enough to convince cautious Windows 7 or Windows 8 users to upgrade to Windows 10 right away. It's also not clear how organizations will know they're using WUB since it isn't presently available as a separate application.

However, upon finding out about the loophole, Microsoft immediately released a security patch that prevents Windows phones from running Android two weeks before Windows 10 Mobile goes official.

 

Updates released for Microsoft's Windows 10 operating system are different in several regards. This is information that is used to insure you have a secure and reliable experience on Windows 10.
