When Microsoft released Windows 10 on July 29, the new operating system was already mired in controversy due to the way it monitors users' activities and reports back to Microsoft. Many news sites including The New American wrote about the spyware features of Windows 10. Some considered that reporting to be little more than fanciful conspiracy theories and exaggerations. With recent admissions from the Redmond, California software giant, however, it is now clear that those reports were accurate and that Windows 10 — as an operating system — is spyware.
With one of its own agents leading the United Nations agency that globalists hope will regulate the Internet, the communist dictatorship ruling mainland China is now calling on the dictator-dominated global body to impose an online “code of conduct” for all of humanity.
Technology company executives now find themselves in a self-inflicted pickle: go along with China or get lost.
For as long as e-mail has been a regular form of communication, Congress has allowed the Fourth Amendment to protect some e-mail, but has also allowed any messages stored on a mail server for 180 days or longer to be seized without a warrant.

As more and more people have become aware of the spyware nature of Windows 10, many have decided not to take Microsoft up on their "free upgrade." People all over the world decided to either switch to some other operating system (such as Linux) or just stay with Windows 7, 8, or 8.1. Now Microsoft admits that it is forcing the update to those who are using those previous versions of Windows, even if they have declined the "upgrade."
With a track record of failure where protecting its own computer networks or investigating major hacks is concerned, the federal government now wants to use that failure as an excuse to pass new "cyber-laws" that will bring the United States "out of the Dark Ages." One such new cyber-law is Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA).
Both Russian and Chinese government security agencies have compiled data obtained from hackers who breached security protecting U.S. computer databases containing security clearance applications, airline records, and medical insurance forms, and then used the data to identify U.S. intelligence officers and agents.
The Windows 10 update that turns your PC into a portal for spying on you was just the beginning of what Microsoft is doing. As more and more people begin to adopt Windows 10 — whether by buying a new PC or via Microsoft's "free" upgrade, the Redmond Giant is building on that foundation to further violate users' privacy and liberty.
Whether you are recycling, selling, or giving your phone away, you need to make sure that all personal data is securely removed first. Simply deleting the information on the phone will not remove the data securely enough. Even factory resetting the phone may not be enough.
