The level of Windows 10 paranoia reached new heights this week when reports suggested that Microsoft would wipe torrents and pirated software from people’s hard drives. Nonsense, of course, but all the recent privacy concerns were enough to have the operating system banned from several torrent trackers.
Another creepy story here. Windows 10’s privacy is turning into a headache for Microsoft. It won’t be long now until prime time and daytime news shows start picking this stuff up, and blow it out of proportion – deserved or no.
The last link is simply Microsoft Family Safety. I’ve been using it for 3 years to help check my son (now 11) isn’t exposed to unsuitable material, not to spy on him, but so that if (when) he starts encountering such material I can explain things to him.
It’s not a new feature, it is opt-in, I don’t really see the problem.
