Guys, don't use Windows 10 Technical Preview as your main OS! Microsoft is using keylogger to collect users’ data. Read the privacy policy of Windows 10 Technical Preview here.
 

  • Open a file, we may collect information about the file, the application used to open the file and how long it takes and use it for purposes such as improving performance; or
  • Enter text, we may collect typed characters and use them for purposes such as improving auto-complete and spell check features.


By accepting the Windows 10 privacy policy you are allowing Microsoft to record files and log your keystrokes. Microsoft knows whatever you type. :mellow:

It's a preview, they need to collect data, WTF do you expect from a preview they want people to test for them ?

I know. I'm just saying that, "don't use Windows 10 Technical Preview as your main OS". If you are a developer then use VMWare Player for testing your apps.

A lot of sites including Neowin are misleading people by saying that Microsoft could be stealing data. :lol:

[..] Microsoft could be stealing data. :lol:

 

All digital communications are being monitored, I doubt that *they* would need to integrate any sort of spy-tech in plain sight. What IS annoying, though, is how my Windows OS can't site idle to the web - until I instruct it otherwise. Every new release, the online infection spreads deeper... I want my PC isolated and NOT integrated, ffs. =)

Have a look @ teh screenshot - and that's just the stuff that's on the surface... Just imagine what kinds of packets are actually exchanged (& by Services, themselves).
