One feature of Windows 10 that may be cause for concern is the way it tracks everything you type — yes, everything — and shares it with Microsoft. You can also manage the information that Microsoft already knows about you by visiting the Privacy Dashboard at account. While not strictly a privacy issue, another controversial aspect of Windows 10 is the inclusion of ads in the user interface.
