Microsoft responds to Windows 10 privacy concerns

Microsoft has finally broken the silence, responding to Windows 10 privacy concerns in a post on the Windows Experience blog.

Unfortunately, the post does little to address actual concerns, instead making a lot of vague promises about not using your data to target ads “Unlike some other platforms” (a clear reference to Google reading your GMail communication to target ads).

For example, there’s nothing about Windows 10’s persistent and frequent communication with Microsoft servers, even when privacy-compromising settings are disabled.

Techdirt, Ars Technica and The Verge have additional analysis.
