    There are various settings, registry entries and services enterprises will have to customise to get a secure experience. That article is a good start, though.

    "protect your privacy" I am sorry but just that makes it ****, FUD ****. and all they said is **** too.
    Windows 7 and 8 had many similar telemetry stuff, or how do you know Microsoft could tell someone wasn't using start menu as much as people thought and that's why they created start screen? by magic? because they spied user with robots?

    Again, all this is FUD. "protect privacy" what privacy is being invaded by Microsoft or Windows 10?
    the EULA is a merge of every Microsoft service, it's not necessary about Windows 10 itself.
    If you use a Microsoft account, do you think nothing is shared? it's OBVIOUS it will be shared, if you use sync you will send your history and passwords and form fills and stuff to Microsoft servers if you use Edge or IE11 on windows 8. or how are you suppose to sync those settings between Microsoft devices? technotelepathy doesn't exist.
    if you use Outlook email service, it's not a secret your email is hosted outside your control, that means on Microsoft servers. and no, they won't read your email unless you have some dark thing like when this person was leaking Microsoft licensing stuff or something.
    If you use OneDrive, where do you think the files are? they are on the cloud, again, on Microsoft servers. whatever you share or not share are analysed by a computer to find something bad. like when they found someone was sharing a folder with 3000 photos of different kids.

    If you use Cortana you need internet, or how do you want Cortana to know the weather? Cortana needs to learn and improve from samples people send. and Cortana works based on the cloud, it doesn't work offline... so whatever you say to her or ask, will be hosted on Microsoft servers to improve the service or just because it needs the information to find whatever you ware asking.

    Other telemetry and feedback stuff can be disable it. but if you get an error, how do you expect Microsoft to fix it? just like on windows 7 and 8 and probably vista, there was a report you could send about the error. And people want faster updates and improved services? well that's why these kid of feedback is done.

    if you use Defender, it's an antivirus, it will grab samples of suspicious files. just like other antivirus. so what privacy it's invading if it's trying to do it's job? apart from that Microsoft can't do **** about your local files.

    And Microsoft is not stealing any bandwidth ****. It's not like Microsoft is always uploading updates from you. that was and will be always BS because you know... there are many people who have faster internet and if you ever share bytes to someone with that updates option on, it would be small bytes and it would be just like for few seconds and it will be a really "bad" luck because you would have to have your computer on, someone would have to be downloading the update and your computer would be randomly chosen to share the few bytes. it's not like Microsoft gives everyday a 2gb update.

    Want me to continue how BS and **** CNN is and how stupid their article is and all this stupid FUD about privacy and ***** stuff.
    like I have said, we are random numbers to Microsoft we are nothing but random feedback and telemetry to improve the service Windows 10 we are getting forever. Microsoft is not touching your porn, Microsoft is not checking what history you are checking.
    I have access to some computers from some people I know, if I don't care about what they do to check their files, and I only do my job and fix whatever they need. Imagine how much Microsoft would care about the 50millions of users (and more and more everyday) do you think they have time to do all that?

    again everything you read there is just stupid paranoid BS that is not more than FUD, just everything this "tech" person says not untrue and not based. I mean there is not even evidence of what people say, they read the EULA and think it's all Microsoft is doing, when some parts don't even apply to them because they don't use full Microsoft services.
