Microsoft’s latest privacy policy says vendors listen to voice data

August 19, 2019 posted by


THESE TYPE OF PACKS HAVE PLAYED OTHER CITIES AND TOWNS ACROSS THE COUNTRY. ARTHEL: MICROSOFT IS THE LATEST TECH GIANT TO COME AT A SCREEN GIANTS REPORT SAID THEY WERE GIVING THIRD-PARTY VENDORS ACCESS TO INFORMATION. THIS ON THE HEELS OF NEW REVELATIONS ABOUT FACEBOOK. MULTIPLE REPORTS SAYING THE WORLDS LARGEST SOCIAL MEDIA PLATFORM HIRED CONTRACTORS TO TRANSCRIBE AUDIO FROM VOICE CHATS. NEW STUDIES RELEASED THIS WEEK ALSO SPOTLIGHT PRIVACY CONCERNS WITH POPULAR DATING APPS AND BLUETOOTH TECHNOLOGY. HOW CAN AMERICANS PROTECT THEIR PERSONAL INFORMATION AND HOW SHOULD CONGRESS RESPOND TO PRIVACY CONCERNS? LET’S DISCUSS THIS. THIS IS A CYBER TERRORISM ANALYST AND SENIOR FELLOW AT THE CENTER FOR DIGITAL GOVERNMENT PIERS MORGAN FIRST OF ALL, TELL US HOW THESE TECH GIANTS ARE COLLECTING AND USING OUR INFORMATION.>>WITH THEIR OWN PERMISSION, I MEAN IT IS A SELF-INFLICTED WOUND. PEOPLE HAVE TO REALIZE WHEN IT’S FOR YOU ARE THE PRODUCT BEING SOLD. ALL OF YOUR CONVERSATIONS AND DATE ARE BEING HARVESTED BY WHAT THEY CALL FACEBOOK, AMAZON, APPLE, NETFLIX, GOOGLE. THE STUFF IS BEING TRANSLATED INTO DOLLARS AND MICROSOFT IS NOT THE ONLY COMPANY DOING THIS. AND IT SEEMS TO BE WE ARE TRANSCRIBING OR TAKING DATA, LISTENING ON YOUR CONVERSATIONS AND TRANSCRIBING IT. THE PROBLEM IS FAR MORE PERVASIVE THAN IT SEEMS AND MORE COUPLES ARE DOING IS NOT JUST THE ONES WE TALKED ABOUT HERE. IT’S A BIG PROBLEM IN THE TECH INDUSTRY. ARTHEL: ARE THEY VIOLATING PRIVACY RESTRICTIONS? AND IF SO WHY DOES IT CONTINUE?>>YOU KNOW, THAT IS A REAL QUESTION. DO THEY VIOLATE PRIVACY RESTRICTIONS? UNDER THE HAND ESSAY SHOULDN’T TAKE A COMPUTER SCIENCE AND LAW DEGREE TO FIGURE WHAT THEY’RE DOING WITH MY INFORMATION. THEY CAN AND SHOULD MAKE IT EASILY UNDERSTOOD. THEY DO NOT COME OUT AND BE VERY TRANSPARENT AND SAID THIS IS WHAT WE ARE DOING. AND WHEN THEY DO GET CAUGHT THEY SAY WE WILL MODIFY WHAT WE SAY.NOTHING HAS TO BE VERY CLEAR THEY HAVE TO TELL YOU, WE WILL USE YOUR CONVERSATION, WILL HAVE HUMANS LISTEN TO IT, TRANSCRIBE IT IN ORDER TO DO X, Y, Z AND BY THE WAY WE NEED YOUR PERMISSION FIRST. WHEN THEY START DOING THAT AND THEN THERE’S NO DEFENSE FROM OUR SIDE IF WE ALLOW THEM. RIGHT NOW IT IS SMOKE AND MIRRORS.SPEECHES THAT WERE CONGRESS COMES INTO PLAY? CAN THEY SAY LISTEN, CREATE LAWS, ASK THEM VERY PLAIN AND CLEARLY YOU CAN SWIPE LEFT OR RIGHT.>>ABSOLUTELY. IT STARTS OFF WITH LITIGATION AND REGULATION AND NOTHING IS TIME FOR LEGISLATION. THE SAME OF THE OPINION UNIQUE AMONG GENERAL DATA PROTECTION REGULATION WHICH IS, THERE ARE HUGE FINES WITH BREACHES. I THINK GOVERNMENT HAS TO GET INVOLVED IN SAY WE ARE TAKING OVER BECAUSE PRIVACY IS REALLY ABOUT POLICY. IT’S WHAT YOU CAN COLLECT AND WHAT YOU CAN DO WITH WHAT YOU COLLECT SO WE SHOULD BE VERY PRESCRIPTIVE ABOUT WHAT YOU CAN DO AND HAVE TO MAKE IT CLEAR. IT CANNOT BE HIDDEN IN A BUNCH OF LEGAL, THEY HAD TO SAY WE DO ABC WITH XYZ. NOT THAT A HARVARD GRAD NEEDS TO INTERPRET. ARTHEL: IS THERE ANY WAY TO PROTECT YOUR PRIVATE INFORMATION MOVING FORWARD?>>A LOT OF THEM HAS INFORMATION. ONE THING YOU CAN DO IS REALIZE THERE’S NO SUCH THING AS PRIVATE UNLESS YOU DO ENCRYPT AND ONCE IT DOES I SIGNALED IS THAT, IS UP TO THE CONSUMER TO REALLY UNDERSTAND IS IT REALLY ENCRYPTED OR NOT? ARE THEY LOOKING AT IT? MAKE SURE THAT YOU TURN ON PRIVACY SETTINGS. I SAY NO ANYTIME SOME MULTIPLE COOKIES ON THEIR BUDDIES A PAIN BECAUSE YOU HAVE TO CLICK ON THE DIFFERENT THINGS BUT YOU HAVE TO TAKE AFFIRMATIVE ACTION TO QUIT LETTING PEOPLE HARVEST ALL OF YOUR DATA. AT THE END OF THE DAY IT IS — I WANT TO BE A FAIR FIGHT. I KNOW IT IS NOT BECAUSE IT IS THE LANGUAGE. YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT EASY FOR ME TO COMPLY WITH MY WISHES, NOT YOUR WISHES. ARTHEL: WITH THE SERVICE AND HARD DRIVES OF THE TECH –>>EVERYONE WILL BE LOOKING FOR NEW WAYS. WHILE WE ARE STILL FIGHTING THIS IS WHETHER RUSSIA, ALL OF OUR ADVERSARIES ARE LOOKING AT NEW WAYS IT INCLUDES GOING AFTER WHAT WE JUST SAW RANSOMWARE ATTACKS AGAINST GOVERNMENT HUGE TARGET RIGHT NOW. NOW THE ATTACKS ARE ALSO GETTING INTO CLOUD SERVICES. THINGS LIKE AMAZON AND GOOGLE. ALSO GOING AFTER CAN YOU IMAGINE WALKING UP ON FACEBOOK DATA WHAT THEY WILL BE WILLING TO PAY TO GET THAT BACK? YOU BET THEY ARE PRIME TARGETS. ARTHEL: WRAPPING A PIERS MORGAN, YOU SAY CONGRESS SHOULD DO SOMETHING. UNFORTUNATELY THAT DOESN’T HAPPEN QUICKLY.>>ARE PEOPLE QUESTIONING MARK ZUCKERBERG THAT DID NOT EVEN HAVE FACEBOOK MAKES MONEY AND SO WE HAVE HAD PEOPLE MAKING LAWS UNDERSTAND THE THINGS OF THE REGULATING AND NOT LEAVE IT TO STAFFERS IN THE INDUSTRY.

    Only in America can you get away with this, money is ruling the roost. Corrupt greedy people have no human ethics or morals it’s just the all mighty $. But just like everything else unless you make the decision to stop using them all it’s never going to stop.

  2. Angelo Zanussi says:

    This is all done by Israeli companies who've made billions off of our stolen technologies! They are the only country in the world who are fed live and raw data on every communications device in the U.S. and All of our Government Agencies.

  9. jlwftl says:

    Did the Russians do it?

  10. C5Ron7 says:

    Big Tech needs Oversight, what they do with OUR information, including back and forth "Text Messages" should be Illegal and remain Silent. Someone must oversee these people to insure WE GET what we are paying for and PRIVACY should remain PRIVATE! If that means Breaking up Big Tech Giants, so be it.

  11. Garden Warrior says:

    Like Sean Hannity, Tucker Carlson, and more?

  14. Cadeth Ofgravel says:

    You already knew that informed watcher

  15. scgamerd says:

    I don’t think this is news anymore… big tech companies have been spying on us, and selling our data, for probably a decade. Time for government to step in

  16. Chuck Dalton says:

    Just canceled Twitter after they suspended me for speaking my mind. Parler is a good alternative. Been off Facebook over seven years. Never missed it. Use Instagram with family only.

  17. Jay Tab says:

    Illegal wiretapping

  18. Timothy Farrand says:

    How can anyone get mad at this type of spying. We all know what they're doing. If have a "smart phone" then you're being spied on. Accept it

  19. David Coxe says:

    Privacy concerns? Turn off social media to start. When it comes to my phone conversations illegal wiretapps laws come into play

  20. Phack Em says:

    All the other vendors are saying I told you so.

  23. Donna Mason says:

    Get off cell phone and go back to home line phones.

  24. Lóránt Farkas says:

    I think we all know how much the big tech & the entire left word and honor worth. Let's just sum up shall we?
    False accusations, false testimony, false judgement, illegal spying on us, mishandling and abusing our personal data to their own end.
    This must put to it's end.

  25. Fake News Maggots says:

    I stop using SKYPE years ago

  27. Karl Marx says:

    "Free" does not make evil acceptable.

    They make plenty of money from adds, this data collection is about power and manipulation.

  28. Studio 68 says:

    Cyber terrorism….lol! What a ruse! Stay scared little sheep. Cyber terrorism only works on those who live in a 4 inch screen. I choose the real world, it is much….much bigger.
    Unplug and wake up.
    The govt is a ruse.
    The media is a ruse.
    Society is a ruse.
    Must keep inundating the populous.
    Call it mandatory education.
    Everyone is programmed to be a slave to idiocy.

    Commenting for "algorithms".

  31. Wraitheon 666 says:

    The people of America shouldn't wait for their government to act. Tech and Government are in bed together. The people must take these tech companies to task!

  32. riceX says:

    Brave Browser and a VPN, check it out.

  33. EndOfDaysasweknowit Layne says:

    Not surprised.

  34. Leonard Chornomaz says:

    All laws and contracts should be required by law to use simple plain language. No more legalese period.

  35. Driver 1967 says:

    Government has ALWAYS done business the same way. They NEVER hire anyone to oversee something that actually knows something about what they are overseeing.

  36. danbanrock1 says:

    I wouldn't be surprised that bastard Bill Gates selling that data to the Chinese like Zuckeberg did. We already know what these idiots are doing so it comes down what is Trump and his people are going to do about it. We can only take this lefty tech giants crap for so long. Same goes for Google.

  37. sue JesusistheLord says:

    Q was 100% RIGHT about computers and phones listening to you. EVEN MY BIBLE APP LISTENS to us and pulls verses according to what we talk about at home and posts it for the verse of the day the next day. Nothing is sacred any more. No privacy.

  38. Iam N. says:

    Fine print should be large print.

    American terrorists wear 3 piece suits and carry brief cases and laptops.

  40. D A says:

    Anyone who didnt assume this is hopeless anyways.

  41. A Team says:

    yahoo reads your emails. they handed over a persons emails to the FBI on their own with no warrant or request. they claimed to have found a crime going on, now yes the persons emails was talking about human trafficking out of the philippines, but it proved they do in fact have a computer program that looks for key words in your emails to flag them for human review, and just who decides whats ok to send in a email that might cross the line with them? and if you do cross their line, do you then later expect to be arrested?? for a email and words in it.

  42. OcelotPlissken47 says:

    Use StopUpdates10 to stop MS sending you worthless updates.

  43. Summer Sun says:

    How about the phones manufactures allowing thos to happened in their making.

  44. eye 75 says:

    Congress is the problem, ALL are corrupt and are paid by the tech companies, it will never change, it will only get much worse, sorry.

  45. Mecca Stewart says:

    Time to get off the internet!

  46. Roamin Scot says:

    USA congress is a joke. They will never do anything.

  51. if it ain't foreign it's borin! says:

    Who trusts fox "news"?

  52. Miguelangel Macias says:

    All tech giants have done this for many years now. Its ALL leading to a world wide mandatory One Central Computer Only system that will require a computer chip be inserted into your body. The Bible calls this system "The Beast" Any day now this system will be introduced.

  53. Miguelangel Macias says:

    Yes congress is USELESS in many regards.

  54. gre p says:

    Pull googles 230

  55. gre p says:

    Ive concluded that congress is impotent. Powerless.

  56. Jennifer K. says:

    Why do they keep getting away with this!

  57. Mark Ligget says:

    Hard for them to understand my Scottish accent, (och aye the noo) lol

  58. Michael Johnson says:

    The government turns a blind eye only because the tech giants share the data they harvest while spying on the public.

  59. Travis Cutler says:

    Wether its free or not they are still doing it.

  60. G Watsittoyaa says:

    Clearly a new commitie needs to be formed to deal with these issues , only way forward.

  61. Andy Solomons says:

    ZUCKERBERG is a CRIMINAL
    FACEBOOK IS A SOCIAL DISEASE

  62. nymfe1 says:

    The government should make laws against eavesdropping and sharing of stolen information!

  63. David Adelstein says:

    Linux Mint + Brave Browser + ProtonMail + DuckDuckGo + Signal Messenger is a combo that will significantly improve your privacy and take some of the power away from the giants in silicone valley…until they grow and become tyrants themselves, then we switch again and again. Fight for freedom never ends.

  64. Heather Wells says:

    Fallen Angels are doing it!

  65. Bobby K says:

    Well, you can stop using those platforms. Without ads, they are dead.

  66. Great American says:

    But the option shouldn’t be “no” and then we can’t use the product. That’s simply coercion.

  67. activedream says:

    Stop talking with your hands! I can see and hear you perfectly, learn to talk like everyone else!

  68. CARZILLA says:

    Wheres our paychecks!?

  69. Emma Rose says:

    You can have a conversation in your kitchen and two days later your topic of conversation appears in a Utube feed. Fact.

  70. Jerry W. Ellis II says:

    our own usage creates traceable results. control your usage. using technology feeds hackers

  71. Sheeple Barn says:

    this is why I don't buy spy devices from amazon etc.

  72. chas4702 says:

    Charge the CEO of Microsoft with wire tapping.

  73. chas4702 says:

    Microsoft is guilty of spying.

  74. Chris Carter says:

    I'm a big fan of Trump but even he isn't going to do anything about it none of them are trying to protect us Americans all I can say is buy all the guns and bullets and food you can because there is going to be an uprising eventually

  75. martin joseph says:

    microsoft is junk. useless garbage that crashes always.

  76. Tom Condon says:

    The problem with apps—unlike computer programs that belong to you—you don't use the microphone or camera, they make it seem that they have to use it, hold it for you, just an excuse to access it. Go to Settings > Apps > Each app > Permissions, and do not give permission to use your mic, your camera, your location, your vital statistics recorded by sensors, your contacts, your pictures and files. If an app needs permission, give it permission, and instantly rescind that permission when done.

    Contracts, I have to click the box to rent a video, but I don't understand those contracts without hiring an attorney. I will understand it with the help of an attorney if your company making me click a box, (not my signature), to use it.

  77. Tom Condon says:

    These contracts, there needs to be boilerplate, an agreed preamble consistent with all permissions document, and you read it once for all products. Then there is a unique section, and it has to be limited, not a 40 page document.

  78. Tom Condon says:

    If you don't accept the cookie, they won't let you use the product. Use DuckDuckGo, allow cookies, do your business, and hit the fire button, all tabs and data erased.

  79. Ziggen Vox says:

    All the heads of these companies should have been in jail years ago. Contract law prevents you from signing your rights away unknowingly. Just because they sneak it into the EULA does not mean it is acceptable.

  80. Jay Rod says:

    Time to break them all up

  81. Kevin Gee says:

    Are crooked bangs an in thing now?

  82. Benjamin Levine says:

    Don't use Facebook. It's a scammy platform

  83. Norwall says:

    💯👍

  84. Alana Adams says:

    Like I said facebook needs to be regulated

  85. Michael Brodie says:

    There is no specific guarantee of privacy in the constitution but there are plenty of activist judges that would love to legislate from then bench. Go running to the 9th circuit court of appeals for all the good it will do you.

  86. Charles P says:

    The reason Big Tech has no respect for constitutional rights and individual human beings is because they’ve learned the government doesn’t care!

  87. Sentinel says:

    You also need to be able to opt out of any feature, especially when you need to use office for work.

  88. cool beans says:

    I think data collection is fair game as long as there is 100% transparency on what they're collecting and what they do with it (which theyre are not)
    However, you have the right to privacy in your own home, why isn't it the same on your virtual home (Operating system). looking through someones mail is a federal crime but not email???? makes no sense… Everything else should be ok imo.

  89. jerry sanders says:

    We need to RECALL 90% of WORTHLESS GREEDY CONGRESS. These morons are FAILING to live up to the OATH they took. THESE TECH BASTARDS SHOULD BE HANGED IMHO💰💰💰🗳💰🗳🐀🐀🐀🐀

  90. steve says:

  97. Jeff M says:

    The only thing you can do is to drop out of social media. Facebook aren't the victims, they are the perpetrators.

  98. BrianC6234 says:

    I guess Microsoft didn't learn from their Xbox 360 Kinect mess. People were really mad over that one. They had to change it so it wasn't spying on people. Watch out with these gadgets that listen to you. They're spies.

  99. David A. says:

    We should all get a cut of the sale of our information. Send me a check!!!!

  100. Joe Smith says:

    If people are just catching on to the tech giant are doing with information then you're the stupid ones if I can imagine it big Tech is doing it and I imagine it's a long time ago what they were doing the more technology you use the more the tech companies gain by your information
