Microsoft Copilot+ Recall feature 'privacy nightmare' - BBC News

May 22, 2024
BBC News
Summary
The UK Information Commissioner's Office (ICO) is investigating Microsoft's new feature, Recall, which periodically takes and stores encrypted screenshots on users' laptops, available exclusively on forthcoming Copilot+ PCs. While Microsoft claims Recall prioritizes user privacy and security, allowing control over captured data and keeping it local, privacy advocates express concerns over significant potential privacy risks. Critics argue that the continuous screenshot feature could cause users to avoid certain activities on their devices. Microsoft reiterates that the experience is optional, emphasizing robust privacy safeguards and restricted access. The ICO’s inquiries aim to assess the effectiveness of these measures in protecting users' rights and freedoms.
