Windows 10 Keeps on Spying on You Even if You Try to Stop it

While booting up Windows 10 for the very first time, you may customize its various settings related to the collection of data and information coming from Microsoft’s servers. Although you can reduce the ratio of sharing the amount of information by stopping your machine from sending typing and speech data, contact and calendar details, location data and even error and diagnostic reports. But unfortunately, you can’t stop it no matter how many boxes you uncheck. Because Microsoft is still collecting information from your machine even if you know it or not.

It has been noticed in a network traffic analysis, which was related to the telemetry and surveillance features of Windows 10 that this version of Windows spies on the user’s activities. The results came out after analyzing network traffic was troubling. It was observed by a Windows 10 user while setting up a new copy of Windows 10 Enterprise Edition on VirtualBox that Windows 10 had attempted to contact 51 Microsoft IP addresses 5,508 times even though he went through and disabled all three pages of tracking options sequentially.

When he came back, after leaving the computer running for eight hours overnight, he found something prodigious. One the same process was repeated and he left his system for another 30 hours, he noticed that over 112 IP addresses had been contacted. The user again attempted the same experiment with a fresh install of Windows 10 and as well as a third party tool, he came to know that the third party tool is misleading because Windows 10 had contacted 30 IP addresses 2,758 times in the same time frame of 30 hours.

Although it’s written in the end user license agreement (EULA) which you sign while installing Windows 10 that gives Microsoft the legal right to fetch your personal information and data. That may be for good as well, but the only issue is that Microsoft denies explaining why they need this data or how the end users information will be used to improve Windows 10 in any meaningful way. One more damming aspect of the entire discussion is the fact that Microsoft doesn’t provide the complete rights to turn certain tracking features off. All of your activities will be traced no matter which settings you disable or what you do. Microsoft isn’t going anywhere and will spying on you.
