Microsoft’s reporting in Windows 10

According to a site, the following is submitted to various Microsoft owned sites [or servers]:

Note: Unsure how true this all is but if you played around a bit you could verify.

All text typed on the keyboard is stored in temporary files, and sent (once per 30 minutes) to:

  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
  • pre.footprintpredict.com
  • reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com

Telemetry is sent once per 5 minutes, to:

  • vortex.data.microsoft.com
  • vortex-win.data.microsoft.com
  • telecommand.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • telecommand.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
  • sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • sqm.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net

Typing the name of any popular movie into your local file search starts a telemetry process that indexes all media files on your computer and transmits them to:

  • df.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
  • vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
  • pre.footprintpredict.com

When a webcam is first enabled, about 35MB of data gets immediately transmitted to:

  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
  • vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
  • i1.services.social.microsoft.com
  • i1.services.social.microsoft.com.nsatc.net

Everything that is said into an enabled microphone is immediately transmitted to:

  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • oca.telemetry.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
  • vortex-sandbox.data.microsoft.com
  • pre.footprintpredict.com
  • i1.services.social.microsoft.com
  • i1.services.social.microsoft.com.nsatc.net
  • telemetry.appex.bing.net
  • telemetry.urs.microsoft.com
  • cs1.wpc.v0cdn.net
  • statsfe1.ws.microsoft.com

Interestingly, if Cortana is enabled, the voice is first transcribed to text, then the transcription is sent to:

  • pre.footprintpredict.com
  • reports.wes.df.telemetry.microsoft.com
  • df.telemetry.microsoft.com
