Microsoft Recall being recalled


Recommended Posts

Quote

Microsoft has announced that the controversial 'Recall' feature will not be included in the upcoming Windows 11 Build for Copilot+ PCs scheduled to ship on Tuesday, June 18th. This built-in Windows feature, designed to take screenshots of user activities and allow querying for information at any time, has faced significant scrutiny and criticism. The company stated in a recent blog post, "Recall will now shift from a preview experience broadly available for Copilot+ PCs on June 18, 2024, to a preview available first in the Windows Insider Program (WIP) in the coming weeks." This indicates that even Windows Insiders will not have immediate access to Recall on June 18th but will need to wait for its availability in the Windows Insider Program.

This feels like the beginning of a way to sweep this whole thing under the rug. Delay it and limit it to preview versions before just quietly cancelling it. 

 

It's the right move. Recall is a terrible idea, and a PR nightmare for Microsoft’s AI ambitions.

the one time a year I need to recall something important is not worth to me them taking screenshots of everything.  I can see some dude sitting at a desk thinking this is great and will help people though, sucks to be those guys.

Ever since Nadella took over Microsoft, they've been in an echo chamber about how great their ideas that have no respect for customer privacy are. The insane part is that their user base has such a high concentration of enterprise customers.

Ultimately I think it will come back, but hopefully with some additional security parameters to restrict compromise. While it said that recall is stored locally only on a users PC, and for now we have to go with that tagline until proven otherwise, I would still like to see Recall being harder to access from the local PC, whether it be password/Biometric protected using something other than your Windows login. 

 

I do not like the fact that if someone knows your Windows password/ you have left you PC unlocked that someone could potentially swoop in and navigate your PC history. Not cool.

 

Not only this but unless I have missed it, I would expect that the recall feature be fully encrypted. Of course I mean completely outside that of something like bitlocker/similar. Recall itself should have its own independent solution regardless of any OS level encryption. 

 

Would I find Recall useful, possibly on the odd occasion as a supplementary tool, but my first port of call would be my own personal backup scheme I already have running. I would rather use my storage space on my PC for Work/Games and general storage, not to fill it up with Recall backups. I have a NAS for that lol.

I already foresee malware targeting the "save" folder of the program and sending the info home to the hackers. More infected FB commercials and tiktok videos await us if this does become a thing.

Oh,then Microsoft will be "That won't happen if you run Windows in "S" mode.....🙄

Exactly that, this is why Recall needs to be secure. Imagine how damaging that could be if malware could obtain all or even part of your recall history. So many people save in plain text logins on their desktops or other areas. I can see it being a potentially huge problem.
