Have held back from Windows 10 on my personal computer because of the privacy issues, but now I need to upgrade and the CPU I want is not compatible with Win7. Soooo I have some questions about the actual scope of Microsoft’s snooping capabilities and some of the products that I’ve found to help protect my data.
1. Does Win10 take pictures of documents or open applications on my desktop.
2. I use charting platforms for day trading, can it observe my activity while I’m trading?
3. I pay for data that is streamed to my platforms, does MS interfere with this in anyway?
I’m thinking of doing two things to protect my system. One, will be to use encryption software for the storage drives; I’m looking at VeraCrypt
right now and two, would be to install DestroyWindows10Spying
, to alleviate the spying aspects.
I’m wondering if anyone can explain the scope of MS data collection and your opinions on the two products that I’ve selected to hopefully stop it, and/or your suggestions on how to completely disable Win10 from having access to my information.
