Re: Sending recent activity data to Microsoft
My understanding is that Microsoft's Windows 10 has been tracking your activity and sending it to their servers since day 1, not just recently. See this YouTube video:
"Windows 10 Spying is worse than I ever imagined"
I believe the person in the above video works in PC security in England. He has made other videos regarding this subject.
This is why I still use Windows 7-64, until Jan 2020. After that I don't know what I'll do, Linux Wine perhaps?
