  2. Should Microsoft allow users to turn off telemetry totally (Windows 7/8.1/10)?

    This has been something that I've been wanting to ask, after the whole fuss about Windows 10 and data collection. As you might know, Microsoft is collecting data from Windows 10 (incl. 7 and 8.1) users for feedback purposes. But, there are some skeptics
    who think that Microsoft is collecting more than just that.

    While I understand that users can turn off some settings to "alleviate" some privacy concerns, but there are some users who would like it if Microsoft allowed them to turn off telemetry completely. To me, allowing users to turn off telemetry is a pretty
    good idea. While I can expect some to still be skeptical, I think that most who are concerned about privacy will probably enjoy the experience (this, of course, is arguable).

    So, what do you think? Should Microsoft allow users to completely turn off telemetry?

  3. Microsoft Telemetry Compatibility

    Hi May,

    To answer your inquiry about Microsoft Telemetry Compatibility, you may refer to the information provided below.

    Microsoft Telemetry Compatibility

    Telemetry is system data that is uploaded by the Connected User Experience and Telemetry component. The telemetry data is used to keep Windows devices secure, and to help Microsoft improve the quality of Windows and Microsoft services. It is used to provide
    a service to the user as part of Windows.

    Basically, it is an automated process, where data is collected at remote points and transmitted back to the ‘parent’, who uses it for the purpose or measuring, monitoring and improving services.

    Yes, it can be disabled by going through Registry Editor. However, it is highly advisable not to disable it since this is an important component to improving the system and bringing better solution to any upcoming issues.

    Feel free to post more inquiries.

    Regards.
