If you installed Windows 10 and like privacy, you checked the defaults, right? Oh dear


I checked the defaults. I decided...

- If I'm going to see adverts, I'd rather they were targeted adverts. I have occasionally bought things that pleased me because of targeted adverts. Allow all that.

- If I'm going to say "Hey Cortana, where's the nearest pub?" I'd like her to know where I am. Too often on Android I've received traffic information for Reading whilst in Norwich, or whatever. So location stuff can stay on too.

- Like hell it is automatically giving out wifi passwords for my router. Turn that shit off.

So, I'm happy enough, but I think it's very dodgy that this stuff is buried and defaulted and not really transparent at all.

Also, I wonder whether I missed anything.
