Microsoft Wants You To Control Your Privacy

By | January 29, 2013 | 0 Comments


Microsoft Wants You To Control Your PrivacyPrior the Data Privacy Day (January 28th), Microsoft has conducted a study whose goal was to learn more about people’s online privacy perceptions. As it turns out, 45% of all the respondents felt like they had little to no control over their personal information with only 10% saying that know how to protect their online privacy.

Well, in an effort to educate the average consumer (who will never visit nor know about such initiative anyway), Microsoft has launched a new portal, which aims to demonstrate how the software giant uses various tools (such as IE’s DNT header) to protect you from the “evil corporations”.

There are also a couple of videos for those who don’t feel like reading. Unfortunately, they couldn’t bother to upload them on YouTube or provide a more user friendly way to post them on your site.

Are you feeling protected already?
