Microsoft Windows's Creepy Move to Spy on Everything You Do With AI

Post by phuketrichard »

I use win 11 But, luckily i dont have it :-)
Microsoft has received a power-up of sorts ever since they teamed up with OpenAI to integrate AI-powered tools into their products. The most popular one among those is Copilot.

It has become a big marketing point for Microsoft, which has now given birth to a new line of computers under the Copilot+ PC program.

There are many offerings from Dell, HP, Lenovo, etc. that are set to come equipped with Snapdragon X series processors with an on-board NPU for handling AI tasks.

However, there is a worrying aspect that these PCs will also come equipped with.

Called “Recall”, this AI-powered feature, when active, will take screenshots of the screen you are working on every few seconds. It then stores the data for later fetching, where it provides you with a scrollable timeline to go back in time and look up what you were doing in the past.

Microsoft describes it as having a photographic memory and asserts that all snapshots taken using Recall are stored on the device itself. They are protected by the data encryption already present on the device.

I think recently my Surface Tablet tried to install Co Pilot, I opted out. This is probably a feature that can be turned off.

It reminds me that my sister in law is constantly have chats with Alexa. It listens all the time.
