  4. Windows 10 Telemetry: new control option for Enterprise customers launches Microsoft announced the public preview of a new Telemetry controlling option for Enterprise customers on July 23, 2020. Telemetry date, Microsoft prefers the term diagnostic data due to the negative connotation of the term Telemetry, has been a controversial aspect of the Windows 10 operating system since its launch. Microsoft decided to enforce the collection of Telemetry data on non-Enterprise systems and give Enterprise customers the choice to disable Telemetry.
  5. Cumulative Update bugs spur Microsoft to call for help. Where’s the telemetry when we need it? The recent round of complaints about bugs in KB 4549951, this month’s Win10 version 1903 and 1909 cumulative update, have prompted a request from Microsoft to sound off. That’s great. But you have to wonder why we’re sending Microsoft all of this telemetry when it can’t pinpoint straightforward patterns. OpenClipArt-Vectors (CC0) Last Friday I wrote about problems reported with this month’s Win10 1903/1909 Cumulative Update, KB 4549951. Other t

  7. While many fled from GitHub to GitLab following Microsoft acquiring the code hosting service, GitLab has come under a bit of fire of its own with plans they had been working on around telemetry support that would begin tracking its users and potentially sharing the data with third-party firms. After announcing planned changes to their terms of service, following customer outrage they quickly stepped down on those plans. Below is an email GitLab sent out to their customers that was also then shared with Phoronix. Dear GitLab users and customers, On October 23,
  8. European and particularly German Data Protection Regulators have been having a long-running issue with Microsoft regarding the data its operating system sends back to Microsoft. The concern is that the telemetry the OS sends back can include personal information, such as email addresses and text snippets being sent back in keyboard and auto-correct telemetry data. This has resulted in German data protection agencies announcing that Windows 10 is not GDPR-compliant and was not fit for use in schools and government work for example. Microsoft has made efforts to be complian
  9. Browse the Telemetry that Firefox collects The Mozilla Firefox web browser, like the majority of browsers available today, collects Telemetry data which Mozilla introduced in Firefox 7 in 2011, Mozilla notes on its official Mozilla Wiki site that Telemetry is "helpful for Mozilla's engineers and decision-makers" as it is used to "measure how Firefox behaves in the real world".

  12. Microsoft will change Diagnostic Data (Telemetry) Naming in Windows 10 Microsoft released a new build to the Windows 10 Insider channel recently which brings the build number to 19577. The accompanying blog post highlights the changes in that version and the very first entry reveals that Microsoft will change diagnostic data naming in future versions of Windows 10.

    W10Privacy 2.7.0.1

    W10Privacy can display common Windows 10 security settings that can be activated as well as deactivated within the program. It also allows importing and exporting of your changes. While there are a lot of Windows 10 privacy tools out there, many of them lack the detail this program has. Of course, this means that it might take you a bit longer to go through your choices. For those who don’t want to go into detail you can choose from 3 predefined settings. While the design is very simple, there are also 3 colors so that you can easily spot the these 3 settings: Green - Recommended - this i

Windows Insider Program members can test the app starting today. Earlier this week I noted a pair of mysterious (and inactive) links in the Privacy settings of recent preview releases of Windows 10, apparently offering the ability to view and delete telemetry data. Today, Microsoft officially confirmed that the next public release of Windows 10 will include a Windows Diagnostic Data Viewe
  15. Canonical's Will Cooke revealed in an email to the Ubuntu development list that the company plans to collect more diagnostic data from desktop. Many programs and operating systems collect diagnostic data. While the degree varies from program to program, it is fair to say that diagnostic data may provide developers with insights into issues and feature popularity. Canonical wants to collect data such as the Ubuntu version, hardware information and selected location during installation to "focus our engineering efforts on the things that matter most to our users".

  18. The next feature update for Windows 10, Windows 10 version 1803, will feature new privacy settings and improvements that give users and administrators more control over data on the device. Windows 10 users and admins may change privacy-related settings in several ways on machines running Windows 10. They may change some privacy options under Settings > Privacy, make modifications using policies, or change Registry keys related to privacy.
