How I Disabled Microsoft Keyloggers on Windows 10

If you are reading this post it probably means you are a very secretive person who doesn’t really like being monitored or doesn’t like exposing every of your activities to others. Well if you are such kind of person and you happen to be using the latest Microsoft Windows 10 on your PC I have two news for you, the bad news and the good news, which do you want to hear first? The bad news, okay!

The latest Microsoft Windows 10 comes with a feature that spies on you. Yes, it comes with keyloggers that monitors what you type, read your calendars to know your schedules and keyloggers may sometimes take screenshots of what you are doing. The truth is I don’t know why Microsoft enabled this feature in its latest Windows 10 because I feel it violates users privacy. Wait before you start boiling hear the good news.

Microsoft has also made it possible for you to disable the inbuilt keyloggers via an easy step. Isn’t that some good news?
So how can you disable keyloggers in Microsoft Windows 10?

1. Go to the Start Menu, and click on Settings to open it.

2. After that, scroll to Privacy. Then click to open.

3. As soon as the Menu opens, scroll to General. Click on it to open.

4. On the General sub-menu, you will see an option
which says “Send Microsoft info about how I write to help us improve typing and writing in the future option” Send Microsoft info about how I write to help us improve typing and writing in the features” Just turn it to OFF.

5. Still on the Privacy Menu pages, scroll to ‘Speech,
Inking and Typing’, then select “Stop getting to know
me.” This will help you turn off the speech tracking through dictation or Cortana.

So having done these, viola! Microsoft would no longer know what we are typing. Isn’t that better?
