Your Windows 10 installation is probably sending quite a bit of information to Microsoft. Just what sorts of things are being sent, and could they be used to identify you or your activities?Try Tunnelbear for free, no credit card required, at https://www.tunnelbear.com/LinusTechquickie Merch Store: https://www.designbyhumans.com/shop/LinusTechTips/ Techquickie Movie Poster: https://shop.crowdmade.com/collections/linustechtips/products/tech-quickie-24x36-poster Follow: http://twitter.com/linustech Leave a reply with your requests for future episodes, or tweet them here: http://twitter.com/jmart604Join the community: http://linustechtips.comIntro Theme: Showdown by F.O.O.L from Monstercat - Best of 2016Video Link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pm36k08jQ0M&t=2422siTunes Download Link: https://itunes.apple.com/us/album/monstercat-best-of-2016/id1185092812Listen on Spotify: https://open.spotify.com/album/5Zt1P3ZbnfErBkiqcfBTCN

Even youtube collect our data, and every single web site in the web collect our data. It's the sad true.

4:50 "...but until then maybe the Linux crowd is really into something"Maybe? What else does MS needs to do in order to convince you?
Now they offer Ubuntu for free for three years, as if Ubuntu were payed hahahhaa !!
Orr you go full nerd like i did this week and disable 60+services and remove over 10k register lines and make well over 200 tweaks. You can actualy fully disable the snooping services with a lot of trail and error. My windows 10 now uses less then 900 mb ram of the 16 gigs and is reduced to 40 services from the 116 it had on a fresh install. Defender however is a pain to disable completely.
Ms 10 down loads the cache and connects with my graphics card for screen shots....no wonder companies dont use Windows anymore in the uk
Literally EVERY SINGLE Windows 10 user must have this software called ShutUp10! It prevents Windows 10 from spying!
Don't tie it to individual users? Funny, Google used to say that as well.
I run a piece of software on my machine called DWS.. destroy windows spying.. and that it resets the hosts that it reports to as 0.0.0.0. and that there are about 100 of them or more.. and that I have to run it every month as the hosts get reset to the Microsoft host sites.. it's not only are they spying but that they make sure they can do it all the time by that of having the updates as for no real reason to have those updates as to be that everyone is mainly secure.. until MS paranoia says that everyone should be as they are.. to reset the host spy sites to that of how they want it reset to their sites.The basic option has to know what sites to send to, that are the host sites, that if turned off as 0.0.0.0 as to their IP that gets sent as a null, that then they never receive the data,, but that they might have a preset as to that of the machine as a number as to update to. as of the software having a specific licensed number as of it's activation to keep sending that to tell MS.. here I am.. reset all hosts to basic.. what does it send as data.. anything and everything it wants to look at.
So happy to run Ubuntu Mate right now....
Microsoft can suck my balls........ Windows 10 will never be installed on my system...... MY DATA...... MY PC........ MY PROPERTY
I'm pretty sure microsoft collects all your data no matter what setting you choose.
