Summary
Microsoft's recent unveiling of the AI-powered Windows 11 Recall feature has stirred privacy and security concerns among users and experts. The feature periodically captures screenshots of an active window to aid in retrieving previously viewed information, with data stored locally and encrypted via BitLocker. Though intended to enhance user convenience, many worry it could be exploited by threat actors, effectively creating a new attack vector. Critics argue that despite Microsoft's assurances of data privacy and user control, the potential for misuse, especially if a device is compromised, poses significant risks. The Information Commissioner’s Office in the UK is consulting with Microsoft to ensure proper data protection measures are in place.
