Windows 10 included a third-party app that compromised your password
Although the issue has been patched, it still questions the authenticity of the third-party apps that come installed in Windows 10. It is worth adding that if Windows 10 users have not yet opened the Keeper app and followed the instructions, they have nothing to worry about.
Ars Technica adds that Microsoft officials did not talk about what all tests they carry before making a third-party app pre-installed in the Windows 10 OS. They also did not comment on the cases when the Keeper app was re-installed against users wishes even after uninstalling it.
Last month, an AFP report, citing Microsoft CEO Staya Nadella, mentioned that Windows 10 is actively running on some 600 million devices worldwide. Nadella announced this figure at the company’s annual shareholder meeting.
Although 600 million is a huge figure, it was reportedly way behind company’s initial target of a billion devices that was to be touched by 2018.
