Windows 10 May Threaten the Privacy of Bitcoin Wallet
Windows 10 gets acclaim by its fashionable and simple user interface, Windows 10 has a lot of adjustments and improvements based on Windows 8 and integrates the humanized voice assistant Cortana.But users have found out a big problem of the operation system that the Windows 10 threatens the user’s privacy.

Windows 10 can legally visit all personal profiles, email and user files and provide related information to the government.The anticipated operation system becomes a spy tool of the national security agency,which can get data from system and Bitcoin wallet.

The non-browser Bitcoin wallet installed in Windows 10 may be the victim of Microsoft privacy policy,as the details,identity information,code and history of transactions may be sent to the government.Especially the sensitive data of BIP32 Bitcoin wallet can be directly sent to the national security agency.

A user from Reddit said:I suggest that you guys stop running a BIP32 Bitcoin wallet on Windows 10 including the desktop and online wallet,unless you want your wallet seed to be sent to the national security agency.Actually not only the NSA,but also any organizations which want to cooperate with Microsoft,like local law enforcement agencies,court, hackers from Russia and China.
