    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

    Microsoft collects information about you, your devices, applications and networks, and your use of those devices, applications and networks. Examples of data we collect include your name, email address, preferences and interests; browsing, search and file history; phone call and SMS data; device configuration and sensor data; and application usage.
    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.

    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.

    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

    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. :)
