    Microsoft AI 'Recall' feature records everything, secures far less

    On Monday, the computing giant unveiled a new line of PCs that integrate Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology to promise faster speeds, enhanced productivity, and a powerful data collection and search tool that screenshots a device's activity including password entry?every few seconds.

    ?Note that Recall does not perform content moderation. It will not hide information such as passwords or financial account numbers. That data may be in snapshots that are stored on your device, especially when sites do not follow standard internet protocols like cloaking password entry.

    Note that if hackers gain access your system, they can still view the data, but at that point they can also do other unwanted things also.

    And hackers have found another potential way to exploit the saved information:

    A PR disaster: Microsoft has lost trust with its users, and Windows Recall is the straw that broke the camel's back

    Microsoft said that it will not make Recall available as a preview feature in Copilot+ PCs on June 18 and will instead make the feature available to Windows Insiders first.
    Beta testing. Where has that been for over a decade?

    Back to the future.

    Beta testing - that is what the Windows Insiders are for.

    It has been on an adventure of self-discovery I guess...
