Switzerland’s top data cop says Microsoft has “gone too far” in abusing people’s privacy.
According to Walter, the installation procedure does not properly inform users about the scope of the default settings. In France, the data protection authority CNIL issued public advice on how to set up privacy controls for Windows 10 earlier this month, but CNIL’s Swiss counterpart is feeling more combative.
“If necessary, we will issue a recommendation,” he warned – a recommendation which could be for the authorities to ban the sale of Windows 10 in Switzerland.
