Following the publication last year of the data collected by Windows 10's built-in telemetry and diagnostic tracking, Microsoft today announced that the next major Windows 10 update, due around March or April, will support a new app, the Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer, that will allow Windows users to browse and inspect the data that the system has collected.

While I doubt this tool will alleviate any of the concerns some people have over Windows 10's data collection, it does at least give some insight into what's being sent to Microsoft - assuming, that is, you trust the reporting to be truthful and accurate.

You can already see what Microsoft sends if you want to, just make sure to log everything sent to their servers and go through it. You can do it, people skilled in reverse engineering can do it just as they do with everything else.

Can you, now?

Don't you think they would have thought about people snooping around their data traffic? Maybe they even hired a bright light that thought about implementing encryption before sending that data out in the open!

I'm guessing...
