  1. Windows 10 Technical Preview - Keylogger

    Hello all,

    I guess this time Microsoft will have to face many problems.... I don't know why people say "There is a keylogger in Windows 10 Technical Preview". They say Microsoft collects their personal Data because they heard this from others. I may agree but it was clearly written in Privacy Policy for the Windows Insider Program that

    I don't think so we should jump on Microsoft for this reasons. I got this information from my some friends and I was really upset by knowing that they started blaming Microsoft for this...... Anyways, what do you think ? Do you think it is a mistake of Microsoft or the users who downloaded it blindly ? Also I don't find any reason why should people have problem if they are collecting their personal information because no one will/is using Windows 10 Technical Preview for business purposes and if they are then they should take care.

    Hi Roli,

    Windows 10 Technical Preview is an old beta version and has been re-branded to Insider Preview. So basically the Insider Preview is the later or updated version of the Windows 10 Preview.

    Technical Preview Re-branded To Insider Preview

    If you're familiar with the previous versions of Windows, Enterprise editions were designed for enterprise markets, mainly for businesses and universities, and not ideal for home use.

  5. If it was just a normal data collecting, fine, but it is a bit more serious, like passwords and such:

    This is my first comment, it's not Microsofts fault, if people don't read the insructions its their own fault. If they don't like it they should quit the programme and leave it to others. I read the rules and am quite happy for them to do what needs to be done.

    IMO, not really a problem in a test release, but if it isn't changed in the final version there will be issues.

    I've been using an Android phone for a few years, so I'm probably numb to getting spied on.

  10. When they release the final version I will create a private account as I did in Windows 8, that doesn't require me to log in, until then I expected them to want to know what is happening with the test version.

    I doubt that they are going to misuse the info, any hacker could do that anyway.

    I don't really have anything on my computer that's sensitive anyway.
    Stuff like that I have a little notebook for, there is still a use for a pen and papper. LOL

  11. Well sure, 99% people do not even know, that Google can do that too, like read emails and use their content to improve services or to share it with advertisers. People forget. *Smile

  12. Ah! I see. So many people are in support of Microsoft here. Anyways it was not their mistake. I just wanted to know what other thinks. Thanks for replies.
    If anyone else also wants to share their opinions too, feel free to share it *Smile

    You're making assumptions here. The problem here is that they're trying to dumb down technical aspects of the OS so people can understand them, and in the process it's losing context.

    This is something that Windows has been doing for a very long time. They're just stating it differently. What they're saying is that when you type something into the address bar of Internet Explorer, it goes out to Microsoft's servers and searches for common lookups. This data is likely caught in logs for maintenance and debugging purposes, among others, so technically Microsoft is collecting your "typed characters" to present autocomplete data.

    They're also collecting your "typed characters" so they can compare them against dictionaries to give you red squiggly underlines for spell checking. Again, both of these are things Microsoft has been doing for a very long time, and it's nothing new. What's new is the new "dumb people explanation" which people are misinterpreting. But, to be fair, no matter how they phrase it, people will misinterpret it.

    In fact, I doubt that my Windows 10 knows anything about me. When I installed, it just created a local account with an arbitrary user name (well, not quite - it's *Cool ). It never asked me for an email address. It did ask me what do I want to share with Microsoft and these settings are quite detailed. I typically turn them all off. Here I left a few on, just so that some telemetry is uploaded, this is a test version after all.

    I think if you actually read the setup screen then we would have known all this to begin with.

    when you load windows for the first time, before you even create an account it says "use express settings" and "customize", in that list is, and I quote:

    • Help improve Microsoft software, services, and location services by sending us info.
    • Use Bing to get search suggestions and web results in Windows Search, and let Microsoft use your location and other info to personalize your experiences.
    • In Internet explorer, use page prediction to pre-load pages, which sends your browsing history to Microsoft.

    Not surprising at all considering MS are developing an OS, this is exactly what you expect when involved in a Beta OS participation scheme.
