  2. Windows 10 Activation using KMS server

    Did you reimage the machines with a volume license copy of Windows 10 Pro or Enterprise volume license clients in order to reach the KMS? I am not aware of OEM licenses ever being activated by a KMS server. In fact, OEM Windows 8.1 Pro licenses would first
    have to reimaged with a volume license image first.

  3. KMS activation safety

    Hi,

    Does KMS windows activation put me at risk of being tracked?

    Can KMS server owner control my activated client pc in any way?

    Does it give server administrator any privilege to access my pc private data/browsing/programs?

    Thanks

    KMS activation safety

    Tracked how?

    KMS is usually a corporate in-house situation, so tracking is irrelevant.

    If you happened to buy an Office (Pro) license that requires KMS activation you most likely have a bootleg copy.

    Your computer sends a license validation requestion to the KMS Server. The server needs to get back in touch with you, so it needs to know where you are.

    AFIK the KMS Server has no other rights or privileges on your computer.
