I would not care for that feature. Someone could hack your system too easily!
And could that be considered a form of "invasion of privacy"?

I was thinking the same thing. I wonder if that feature can be disabled?

It seems that Windows 10 has some serious privacy features that we all might be concerned with. What we will end up with after the smoke clears is anybody's guess. The more I read about Windows 10 the more I don't like it. Some of this can be turned off but they make you search for it.

For all the time that Win 10 was in field trials before official release, no one discovered those "loopholes"?
