Microsoft Changes Windows 11 Recall Feature

Microsoft is updating the Recall feature in Windows 11. Here's why.

Microsoft's Recall feature, powered by AI, is now an opt-in feature instead of a default setting.

Recall captures screenshots every few seconds, allowing AI to search for specific user activities.

Privacy concerns about data capture and storage led to the change from a default setting to opt-in.

The setup process will now clearly inform users about enabling Recall, requiring explicit consent.

Recall activation will require Windows Hello and "proof of presence." Data will be stored and processed on-device with improved encryption.

Privacy concerns prompted Microsoft to make Recall an opt-in feature and enhance data security measures.

Microsoft's updates aim to address privacy concerns and improve user trust in the Recall feature.
