Can Smart Security block Windows 10 default privacy invasions?


Recommended Posts

Windows 10 comes with an insane service agreement that states;

 

 

Finally, we will access, disclose and preserve personal data, including your content (such as the content of your emails, other private communications or files in private folders), when we have a good faith belief that doing so is necessary...

 

Will Eset's firewall be able to prevent remote access by Microsoft and its 'technology partners'? Is Eset aware of any code or function made by Microsoft which can and will prevent 3rd party security vendors from thouroughly securing their computers?

if you are worried you can go to All settings in the Action Centre then click on privacy setting then turn off all settings under privacy just to let you know

Just another reason for me NOT to upgrade to 10 and instead advance my MAC purchase in my timeline.

I don't see why everyone is up in arms. Every major tech company has these in their service agreement, it covers them for the future. People are just blowing it out of the water because it is Microsoft. If you go look through Googles and Apples you will find near enough the same thing.

 

Microsoft aren't spying on you, its just people exploiting paranoia.

I care because I am a Windows user. Just because the other guys have them as well still doesn't make it right. I disagree with it all around from every tech company.

 

"Trust us because we are Microsoft"? Not reassuring. What future are they covering themselves for that makes this OK? If they had no intention on using it they would not have put it inside of their Privacy Policy. Who puts, we reserve the right to steal all of your financial data and empty your bank accounts if we find that there is any money in there. No worries though, we will never do such a thing because we are Microsoft. 'wink'. Unless they were covering themselves for WHEN not IF they actually do it?

 

As far as I am concerned it is the same thing. They have the potential to steal anything and get away with it. Any papers, patents, copyrights, or schematics you might be in the process of working on could be stolen and finished and registered before you get around to it. That's just the start. The access is two-way so placing illegal files on a 'Needs Work' journalists' computer in order to discredit them and get them fired is not impossible. I am sure that the NSA would pay them to do this to many people.

 

Flat out. The only way to eliminate the possibility for this to go wong is to get rid it. My questions regarding ESS still have not been answered.

Then don't use a computer. Everyone is spied on and tracked  EULA or Not. The era of cell phones and tablets has invaded "real" computers. The only real way to get rid of this stuff is to not use any modern electronic device until the powers that be stop .

 

NEVER HAPPEN

Isn't that what a Firewall is supposed to do? Control traffic/access in and out of your devices. That is the point afterall. Threadjackers aside, Will ESS block Microsoft's backdoor?

It probably can, but I am sure you would go nuts finding all the ip addresses/ web sites/redirects involved. I am sure Microsoft has hundreds of ip addresses if not thousands. They probably did not make things easy in Windows 10 either. You would have to be a programmer to even look into

it. Thousands of lines of code (millions ?)
