The Dutch DPA alleges that Microsoft is doing a poor job of informing customers of the type of data that it collects, and how their personal data is used by the company.

Microsoft has responded to the DPA's finding in a blog post (translated), stating: "We are committed to continuing to improve and build on the innovations in Windows 10". Microsoft Edge allows you to perform searches using your voice even though the app won't ask you for microphone access when you initially launch it, though this particular functionality is still highly experimental in nature and rather slow to recognize when you have actually stopped talking unless you're in a perfectly quiet environment, so even dictating your query could make you lose your patience and tap the microphone button to confirm it because the app won't be able to figure out it's time to stop listening and start working. They are not informed which data are being used for what objective, neither that based on these data, personalized advertisements and recommendations can be presented, if those users have not opted out from these default settings on installation or afterward. However, the Continue on PC feature needs Windows 10 Fall Creators update to work which is still in beta. So we cannot say how many people are actually using this browser and hence the number could be a lot less.

According to the Dutch data protection authority, Windows 10 is in violation of local privacy laws concerning the use of automated data collection. Microsoft continuously collects technical performance and user data (e.g. which apps are installed and, if the user has not changed the default settings, how often apps are used, as well as data on web surfing behaviour) from these devices. The first is to help Microsoft fix Windows for devices on which it experiences errors, and the second is for Microsoft to serve personalized ads to Windows 10 users. We also told you that the Android version of the app would be coming soon. The way Microsoft collects data at the full telemetry level is unpredictable. There are two sharing options - one is to open the webpage directly in Edge on the Windows 10 device or send an alert to the Action Center with a shortcut to the site.

As can be seen from the graphic above, this meant students were more protected on a Windows 10 S machine than a Chromebook, with both devices, due to their nature, already offering robust protection against other forms of malware. Microsoft Edge will pull up the reading and information right onto your screen.

The company's default browser for Windows 10 is an uncluttered Internet Explorer replacement.

Microsoft also dismissed the DPA's claims by citing a Fact Sheet, which points to all the privacy improvements introduced in the Creators Update. The Edge is now moving out from the home and making its place in Android and iOS.
