Windows 10 Keylogger

More than just a keylogger

The component is not actually a keylogger in terms of malware.

It is more than that, as Microsoft openly says…

“When you interact with your Windows device by speaking, [handwriting], or typing, Microsoft collects speech, inking, and typing information – including information about your Calendar and People [contacts]…”

You can find more information about Microsoft’s Privacy Policy here.

If that makes you feel creepy then need not to worry, because the good news is — You can Turn Off this Keylogger.


Here’s How You can Turn Off the Keylogger

  • Click on the Start Menu, then open Settings.
  • Click on Privacy settings, which you’ll find in the very last row of the menu.
  • Once you are in the Privacy menu, click on General
  • Under ‘Send Microsoft info about how I write to help use improve typing and writing in the future‘ – Turn it to Off.
  • Now move ahead to the ‘Speech, Inking and Typing’ menu and click Stop getting to know me. This will help you turn off the speech tracking through dictation or Cortana.
