The headlines scream: “Microsoft’s Windows 10 is a privacy nightmare,” “Windows 10: Privacy Nightmare and Known Solutions.” Even TechRepublic got in on the promotion of fear, uncertainty, and doubt (FUD) in the early going: “Windows 10 violates your privacy by default, here’s how you can protect yourself.”
Windows 10 default privacy settings do not grant Microsoft access to your most intimate and forbidden secrets. In fact, most of the information Microsoft collects through Windows 10 is the same information Apple, Google, Amazon, Facebook, and Twitter, to name just a few, collect about you every time you turn on your computer or smartphone and use their services. If you use the internet, you are being watched. You’d better get used to it.
