How To Disable Windows 10 Keylogger

[Microsoft Can Track Your Keystrokes, Your Speech, And More]

If it isn’t having Cortana follow you around online, it’s logging your keystrokes or sending you personalized ads.

Microsoft openly puts a keylogger in its Windows 10 operating system to give users a personalized experience.

Windows 10’s FAQs mention, “When you interact with your Windows device by speaking, writing (handwriting), or typing, Microsoft collects speech, inking, and typing information—including information about your Calendar and People (also known as contacts).”

It’s done with the intention of improving the accuracy of suggestions, providing a personalized experience, and so on.

But we live in an age where privacy matters. If that makes you feel creepy then need not to worry, because the good news is — You can Turn Off this Keylogger.

Here are the settings to turn it all off.

Before/During Installation

  1. Do not use Express Settings. Hit Customize, and make sure everything is turned off.
  2. It’s strongly recommended that you use a local account with Windows 10.

After Installation

  1. Go to Start Menu > click on the Settings menu.
  2. Click on Privacy.
  3. Now under the General section, tweak different privacy settings.
  4. For instance, you can toggle the following setting off: Send Microsoft info about how I write to help us improve typing and writing in the future.
  5. Also, click go to Speech, inking and typing section to switch off the Stop getting to know me feature.

You can also check out other privacy settings and customize accordingly.

You can even control the apps that get access to your camera, microphone, contact and calendar.
