    Can Seller Of "VOLUME_MAK Type Product Key" gain access to my system?

    I have a question I hope someone can help me with.

    I bought Windows 10 Pro License / Product Key cheap on Ebay.
    I have verified it is a VOLUME_MAK Type Product Key.

    I downloaded my ISO direct from Microsoft.

    Installed and Activated no problems.

    I am aware that MS could deactivate because re-sale of this type key is not permitted. I am not concerned with that. I am more concerned with the person I bought it from being able to gain access to my machine. So here is my question.

    Question: Can the person who sold me this VOLUME_MAK Type Product Key use it somehow to gain access to my machine?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    What you have done is software piracy. You cannot even defence yourself by telling you didn't know it's illegal, you knew very well that a volume activation key is not for resale.

    Our forum rules strictly forbids all conversation about piracy. I have reported your post to administrators.
