Microsoft corporation forces users to give full access to their personal data.
It is no longer a secret that the employees of the Company nasty use devious methods to force inexperienced users to create “Microsoft account” every time they install Windows 10.
But it’s only beginning, Microsoft says that next year, all Minecraft users will need to have a Microsoft account as well. The corporation of evil is able to force people to do this since the Mojang Company (the creators of the video game MineCraft) was acquired by Microsoft in 2014.
It is worth to remind that this year Microsoft bought Bethesda and there is no doubt the next steps will be placing the requirements for registering an account for playing Bethesda. Oh, yes, many beloved GitHub, also bought and crushed by these monopolists.
Here are just a few of the points, if you squeeze all the water out of them:
1. We register your first and last name, email address, postal address, phone number, and other contact information of this kind
2. Collecting data about your age, gender, country, location
3. Collecting data on your interests and data about who you are in contact with and with whom you maintain a relationship
4. Collecting your passwords
5. Collecting a security code associated with your payment method
6. Collecting the content of your documents, photos, music or video materials, messages
7. Data over networks and connections, such as the IP address of the device, the number of network connections in use, and data about the networks to which you connect, such as mobile networks, Bluetooth and identifiers (BSSID and SSID), connection requirements and the speed of the Wi-Fi networks to which you connected
8. Configuration information, including your device’s make, model, number of processors, screen size and resolution, date, regional and language settings, and other device specifications. Other equipment connected to your device. And if this data is not enough for us, we receive data from third parties All this data is used by the evil corporation for targeted advertising, and also shares it with all branches and departments; contractors, and law enforcement.
The worst thing is that no one reads these documents. And Microsoft continues to scoff at them with the first line in:
“Your privacy is very important to us.”
