Windows 10 Can Collect Your Data For Gov’t Agencies – What to Do

By Heather Callaghan

Windows 10 OS – the ultimate Big Brother?

Of the 14+ million people who have recently installed Microsoft’s new Windows 10, there haven’t been many complaints until now.

The system is said to run more efficiently, but apparently someone only recently read the tome of a service agreement. Let’s just say that Windows 10 goes above and beyond good service and makes sure that you are being a good citizen. Who is the one really getting the upgrade, here?

Yes, it is implicitly stated that whoever installs the program is agreeing to be watched and that Windows 10 can and will aid and abet law enforcement and other government agencies – should it deem that you are doing something illegal.

BGR found this part of the agreement particularly interesting:

Finally, we will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary to: 1.comply with applicable law or respond to valid legal process, including from law enforcement or other government agencies; 2.protect our customers, for example to prevent spam or attempts to defraud users of the services, or to help prevent the loss of life or serious injury of anyone;

[…]

…however, if we receive information indicating that someone is using our services to traffic in stolen intellectual or physical property of Microsoft, we will not inspect a customer’s private content ourselves, but we may refer the matter to law enforcement.


From Mirror UK

…Microsoft has admitted it collects key information on Windows users, recording the searches they make with Bing, requests spoken to the voice assistant Cortana and even “your typed and handwritten words”.

The tech giant also said it could rifle through a variety of private and personal places.

European Digital Rights Organisation said that Microsoft had given itself broad rights and would sell your data to third parties. Tech bloggers are upset that the defaults are set for automatic intrusion, as they know how many people will skip through the download without thinking – and give all of their information away. Microsoft responded in a statement claiming that it does not sell, and it “does not collect personal information without your consent.” (source)

Do you want to revoke that consent? Watch this video and follow the steps laid out in this article:

You can opt out. You start by going into Settings, then Privacy. Consider getting rid of Cortana – the voice-activated assistant. More instructions here.

Investment Watch Blog claims that this user agreement can land you in jail – mainly for its categorization using IP addresses. “Going to any website on the Internet is illegal because the web server must absolutely share it’s files with your computer so you can access that website. Anyways, since someone had your IP address before, and verse visa, if that someone had done anything illegal you’ll be the one to suffer all legal and law breaking consequences when you’re caught,” the writer explains. The person goes on to wonder about the implications of viewing Internet pornography, creating content and the files that Windows itself downloads to PCs.

Recently, we learned that private companies color code your home for police and track all the people coming through your house – even pizza delivery guys. You can be flagged for something you didn’t even know your friend had done in the past. Congress discussed social media sites reporting you to the authorities. In the same week it was admitted that federal agencies like the IRS could have access to opened email and social media messages. Unfortunately, most people have completely accepted the absurd lack of privacy – but can you really accept this colonoscopic amount of scrutiny? Why would they collect information for non-use? In other words, what will happen when all that private information is put to use?

Microsoft, as you know, is in the care of billionaire Bill Gates. When he is not busy gifting the world with spyware, his groups are busy beta-testing remote controlled sterilization on women in third world countries or forcing GMO rice on an unwilling Philippines with his buddies, the Rockefellers. But a depopulation fanatic wouldn’t want to paint everyone guilty, right?

Revelations like this, will hopefully prompt people to look gift horses in the mouth, instead of blindly allowing themselves to be the ones upgraded. Why do people not question that there is virtually a monopoly (or two) on the world’s computer operating systems?

    We have more than one judge that has ruled an IP address is not a person and apps that can hack WiFi passwords. Trying to hold anyone responsible for IP address activity looks like pretty tricky proposition to prove.

    • Grandhuff

      Do you trust judges? The Supreme Court was out of its legal authority to rule on the matter of same-sex marriage. There is nothing in the Fourteenth Amendment that grants such authority. The Court’s claimed power to create ‘liberties’ that the Constitution and its Amendments neglect to mention. I personally do not care whether or not same-sex marriage is made legal. But this decree says that ‘my Ruler, and the Ruler of 320 million Americans coast-to-coast, is a majority of the nine lawyers on the Supreme Court”. Nine unelected officials do not have the legal power to make laws. If I were you, I would not trust the ruling of a judge or two on this matter.

      • James Leonard

        No one should trust judges in America, but the fact that there are several rulings that an IP is not a person makes it very difficult now to rule contrary to these precedent setting decisions.

  • Cypher

    One Microsoft announced that this upgrade was free I knew something didn’t smell right.

  • Paul

    Flood it with info… pure and simple… start every message with a trigger word, like Bomb, and finish it with a trigger word, like Bomb, and do this all the time, it is a system that handles data, but give it false data, and it won’t be able to work anything out properly… well thats my two pennith worth anyway. Use and abuse it, have fun.

    • Common Sense

      I like it !!!
      The paranoid control freaks treat everyone like they are a criminal so we may as well give them what they want.

      The real problem is we have way to many people that will go along to get along even if it means backing into a corner, which by the way is exactly where we are headed.

      There will be a time when americans will run out of room to run and then they will wish they had done something earlier.

    So what will it take for sheeple to wake up and start using Linux ?

    • lorena r

      linux can be hacked, dont be fooled

      • Ben

        It can be cracked is perhaps what you mean. Yes, _it can_ be. It is rather difficult if the user/s of a Linux system are security aware.
        Although, Android which sets atop a basic Linux does report data to government, corporations.
        Not sure if that is software or hardware _flaw_. I use Linux on my desktop, don’t use cell phones, tablets, laptops.

    Where can I buy a fax machine?

      What does this have to do with this article? It’s a silly question, anyway.

  • Mark Maranta

    WTF is ‘Windows’? Looks just like one of my Macintoshes… but it’s a very bad design.

    • Arizona Ranger

      LOL, Apple is the leader in this type of data gathering.

  • rdb

    don’t use M windows 10. I don’t trust that there is any way to opt out of the tracking…..No one should trust that there is!

  • noWindows

    ..and…more than likely they can download anything they want to set you up – make you appear to be scum.

  • lorena r

    Even if you follow through with not accepting -opting out- of that part of the installation, there are things in the program that will do auto changes, to over ride anything accepted or not accepted when the gov deems fit to change things against your wishes, could be a day when in the news – a small blip where no one reads- that their rules are changed and it will be mandatory to read and hear and see all connected to your pc, lap top, cel phone, tablet etc., your will – will not matter any more
    be smart, stay away from it completely

  • Wanda Harker Smith

    I have not installed Windows 10 on my computer. But the icon for it is still on my task bar. Any idea of how to get it off my computer?

  • D-Ohm

    Since it is illegal to use or even think you are a legal name, then who is using what? Law enforcements cannot do or even think they can do anything…www.losethename.com
