Windows 11 Sends Tremendous Amount of User Data to Third Parties, YouTuber Claims

Many programs collect user data and send it back to their developers to improve software or provide more targeted services. But according to the PC Security Channel (via TechSpot), Microsoft’s Windows 11 sends data not only to the Redmond, Washington-based software giant, but also to multiple third parties.  

To analyze DNS traffic generated by a freshly installed copy of Windows 11 on a brand-new notebook, the PC Security Channel used the Wireshark network protocol analyzer that reveals precisely what is happening on a network. The results were astounding enough for the YouTube channel to call Microsoft’s Windows 11 “spyware.”
