Thread: Windows 10 May Share Your Wi-Fi Password with Facebook

    Default Windows 10 May Share Your Wi-Fi Password with Facebook

    I just wanted to post this. Here is the link.

    https://www.yahoo.com/tech/s/windows...164057617.html

    My personal opinion, I don't like this new option.

    Yeah, way to intrusive. After dealing with driver errors, one after the next I had no choice but to reinstall 7 anyway. Free or not (well not really free, they data mine you and sell that information), I think it's wise to hold off on upgrading for a while, at least until all of the dirty secrets and major driver issues have been resolved.

    If they do, they're in violation of their own EULA, TOU, and Privacy Policy

    Could this also have an impact in Europe too? I remember Google had a some violation with the european laws about privacy act. I read it here http://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/2...e-war/2010643/

    The default settings in Windows 10 mean that Microsoft own your PC and can monitor much of what you do on it.

    A 45-page long privacy policy of vagueness just shows how little Microsoft care about our privacy.

    They're saving a ton of money by giving out free upgrades. Getting everyone on a single platform (including tablet/mobile users)

    The penny-pinching doesn't stop there. Microsoft connect you to a P2P network so your updates can be shared with others. Beware surprise bills if you're on a metered connection!


    By default, Microsoft turns your computer into a peer-to-peer node to help it distribute Windows 10 updates, in order to save Microsoft server bandwidth costs. “Microsoft calls it Windows Update Delivery Optimization,” or WUDO. WUDO really should have been turned off by default, because it may slow you down and may even cost you additional money if you have a metered connection. Instead, it is also one of the hardest settings to turn off, requiring clicking through four obscure screens.

    (And FFS, Microsoft! WHERE is the start menu you promised?! Please don't tell me you call that... thing... a start menu! It's useless! We demand a proper menu... like in Windows XP or [Linux desktop manager] XFCE!)
    (And yeah, I know about the third-party program "Classic Shell", but you really shouldn't need a program to provide basic GUI functions.)

    Phew! Thanks for listening! It felt good to vent my frustrations! I'd been quite looking forward to WIndows 10... I'd probably give it a go, but an upgrade would mean my Windows 7 licence would self-destruct

    And thanks for sharing more useful, if disturbing, details. I don't have any immediate intentions of getting a new box, or migrating to 10, but that certainly put a stop to the possibility.

    Tiny, I like that all your "proof" consists of short, vague articles with references to random additional 3rd parties. If all this invasion is actually in MS Policies, why not link THERE and show it in black and white from the horse's mouth?

    You need to relax Tiny. Windows 10 is actually pretty nice and the start button is back. :3

    Some more details and settings:

    Also, search reporting back to Bing can only be prevented by firewall, it seems.

    Having said that, I'll still upgrade my 7 Installation, it's just for compatibility anyways. I'm using Linux pretty much all the time.
