How to disable keylogger on Windows 10

keyboard-100314561-galleryMicrosoft really admists it has a Keylogger in its Windows 10 speech, inking, typing, and privacy FAQ: “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)…”

If that gets you angry, welcome to the human race.

Talking about Microsoft documents, you may want to check out their overall Prihvachy Statements. To Microsoft’s credit, it’s in plain English rather than legalese. On the other hand, it’s about 17,000 words, so it take a whole lot of time to know if there is anything else that’s truly awful inside.

I have a good news for you, you can turn off the keylogging. Click Settings (it’s on the Start menu’s left pane) to open the Settings program. You’ll find Privacy on the very last row.

Now go to the Speech, inking and typing section and click Stop.

You may also want to explore other options in Privacy. For instance, you can control which apps get access to your camera, microphone, contacts, and calendar. I wish I had that capability in Android.
