    Of cause they will have permission. It’s in the TOS and EULA if you don’t want to have them doing it you will have to use something else.

    This is 100% a core feature and will break windows if you disable it. You know, until Europe says we have to let people disable it then we will only allow European versions disable it.

    Unless you are an enterprise than you can flip these 2 registry keys and that group policy to disable it, but we will revert that setting every time we update the software, which will be about every month.

        You mean like “client side scanning of all media you send via any (chat) app before encryption and sending all media that might trigger $algorithm to the police”? Yes, it happens only if you consented to it, but good luck using those apps without giving consent…

      All of this is blatantly false and easily verifiable.

      Is there a verb for this? Can we call these types of statements trumping?

        They’ve literally done this. Perhaps you haven’t dealt with the shitstain that is IE11, windows apps “Bing, Cortana, Xbox gamebar, etc” but they 100% had massive issues very similar to the above description with all of those rollouts and features. My end users are lawyers and I can’t tell you how many times I’ve had them bitch about candy crush being on the start menu before they rolled the reg key to rip/remove it, and that’s from Win10 Enterprise ltsc.

      i wouldn’t trust a company who would enable this by default to allow users to TRULY completely disable it. much like how you can only opt out of the telemetry options they allow you to.

      I’m not a windows user, but I’ve heard windows enterprise has a lot of the annoyances enabled. Also linux, but I’m guessing there’s a reason you don’t use that already.

        I use linux at home but manage windows and linux at work so I’m pretty much stuck with having to deal with MS bullshit for life.

        As much as I’d love to work in a linux-only environment they don’t really exist in my area so I’d have to move or take a remote job that’s radically different from what I’m accustomed to. And despite the MS annoyances I like my position a lot so I’m satisfied with fussing about MS online.

        That said pretty pissed about the last 3 months of patch tuesday fuckery. KB5037765 ruined my week.

    It could be fun to implement this under *NIX for fun — cronjob to take screenshots, some OCR, throw it in a database…I’d never want to use this “feature” but as an academic exercise it could be a fun project.

    But having it implemented by my OS, and not by me…yikes. No thanks.

    Having Windows installed on your PC counts as permission right?

      That is certainly what MS will claim within their TOS. Best solution when possible, is to not use Windows.

    Yes, with permission. It’s insane how many of you fundamentally do not understand how it works.

      Recall uses Copilot+ PC advanced processing capabilities to take images of your active screen every few seconds.

      The minimum hard drive space needed to run Recall is 256 GB, and 50 GB of space must be available. The default allocation for Recall on a device with 256 GB will be 25 GB

      Note that Recall does not perform content moderation. It will not hide information such as passwords or financial account numbers.

      you will see the Recall taskbar icon after you first activate your device.

      Do you want more red flags? Or don’t I have permission?

        So would partitioning your drive so windows is on less than 256 GB work to make it not run?

              When installed on a SSD, it can weight up to 150g.

              But seriously, I have Win10 in a VM here using 73GB on disk.

    Acutis was beatified by Pope Francis in October 2020 after a first miracle was attributed to him, involving a Brazilian boy born with a pancreatic defect who said he was healed after praying to Acutis.

    According to Vatican News, the news portal of the Holy See, the second miracle involved a Costa Rican woman whose daughter had a bicycle accident and was given a low chance of survival by doctors

    Has the bar for “miracle” always been that low? People don’t die around me all the time, can I be sainted?
