Even With Telemetry Disabled, Windows 10 Talks To Dozens of Microsoft Servers


Curious about the various telemetry and personal information being collected by Windows 10, one user installed Windows 10 Enterprise and disabled all of the telemetry and reporting options. Then he configured his router to log all the connections that happened anyway.


Even after opting out wherever possible, his firewall captured Windows making around 4,000 connection attempts to 93 different IP addresses during an 8 hour period, with most of those IPs controlled by Microsoft.


Even the enterprise version of Windows 10 is checking in with Redmond when you tell it not to — and it's doing so frequently.

 

So there you go... final proof that Microsoft can no longer be trusted to protect computer user's privacy!
