Despite what you may have read, Windows 10 is not spying on everything you do. So feel free to remove your tin-foil beanie.
However, Windows 10 could potentially collect a ton of data about you — probably more personal information than any operating system in history. That’s due largely to Cortana, Win10’s built-in personal digital assistant, which collects such information to better serve you. But Windows 10 also collects information to make other aspects of your computing experience more personal.
So, one thing you can do is, disable Cortana’s feature to get you know.
Here’s How to Turn off Windows 10 Spy Keylogger Privacy Settings
- Click on the Start Menu, then open Settings.
- Click on Privacy settings, which you’ll find in the very last row of the menu.
- Once you are in the Privacy menu, click on General Under ‘Send Microsoft info about how I write to help use improve typing and writing in the future‘ – Turn it to Off.
- Now move ahead to the ‘Speech, Inking and Typing‘ menu and click Stop getting to know me.
This will help you turn off the speech tracking through dictation or Cortana.
Well, by doing so you may not get the optimum use of new Microsoft Windows 10 and Cortana. So, if you trust Microsoft and its product, better not to turn off these settings.
