We are now going to start documenting the concerns we saw and that others have been writing about.
We will start with the following piece:
"Windows 10 raises privacy concerns"
"It may be a free upgrade but 'we pay with our data,' analyst says"
The Canadian Press Posted this piece on Sep 10, 2015 at 4:16 PM ET and that was also the timestamp on the last update when we accessed the piece for this OP.
An extract from their piece follows:
Microsoft's new Windows 10 operating system has been praised for improving upon the flaws of its predecessor, but the company is facing widespread criticism for what some are calling invasive data collection.
Under its default privacy settings, Windows 10 tracks the way users type, what applications they use, their browsing history and other personal information.
Windows 10 also sends a weekly "activity update" on childrens' web browsing and computer history to their parents. Some parents have publicly described receiving those emails from Microsoft as "creepy," while others warn it could serve to humiliate teens at a vulnerable period in their lives.
Users have to actively turn off the features to stop the tracking.
