Use This Technology Wisely…

Windows 10 sends a weekly “activity update” on childrens’ internet browsing and computer history to parents, by default and without telling anyone.

Great! No more parents in local newspapers saying ‘I didn’t know what little Shayneese was up to!’ then?

Of course, there are concerns:

Some worried that the feature could accidentally out young LGBT people, by sending details of their web browsing to their parents. That could then in turn put them at risk of abuse by their parents, or danger, Twitter users have warned.

You’d hope not, in this day and age, wouldn’t you?

Others have worried that the feature is part of a shift towards “teaching children from the youngest age their every motion is being digital watched and they should self-censor as appropriate,” wrote Twitter user mcc.

Well, thanks to the SJWs and progressives, that’s quite a handy survival instinct, isn’t it?

    Ah, but only on ‘Family user accounts’ surely? Doesn’t that option have to be selected during installation / upgrade?

      Yes, but tech-savvy parents are much, much fewer than tech-savvy kids!
