Microsoft Is On Investigating Privacy Concerns In Windows 10

Many users have upgraded to Windows 10 because of its new good and useful features. However, a part of users still doesn’t want to take the risk to upgrade to Windows 10 and put their online privacy at risk.

Since the release of Windows 10, most of us asked Microsoft to discuss the privacy concerns in this latest version of Windows. However, there was no official response from Microsoft since then yet. According to reports from Windows users, the latest Windows version is keeping to send out users’ information to Microsoft, including location, voice input, text input, touch input, and much more.

Finally, today, Terry Myerson, the Microsoft’s Executive Vice President said the company is on investigating this issue and will let us handle what kind of information your computer will send out in the next major update – Windows 10 Creators Update.

Windows 10 web-based privacy control

Microsoft also released a web-based version of privacy management, where you can log in with your Microsoft account and choose what kind of information your Windows computer can send out. If you are using a Microsoft account to log on your PC, visit here to find out.

I haven’t used this feature yet, but unfortunately, it seems this feature is only available for users who are using a Microsoft account to log onto their computer. In case of using a local account to access the computer, there’s no way to control and handle online privacy issues yet. If you are in this situation, then you have to wait for the next major update.
