Microsoft installs an Office suite on Windows 10 without user permission

There is more to the long list of surprise updates that Microsoft is releasing for Windows 10. Anyone who uses the computer exclusively for work should be careful, as many users report that they were surprised that Windows 10 from your computer, after restarting without asking for your consent, you started with an Office Online Package installed, without being requested by the user.

And that worries users with a standard version of the productivity package. Until then, installing these apps has always been optional, but Microsoft has no time to waste in negotiations and has decided to install it at its own risk.

The people at Verge have shown that a version of Microsoft Office Online is installed on their PC. However, don’t expect this to be the app itself, as these are just links that point to the online version, which although free is very limited, and whose main purpose is that users buy a full and paid version.

These updates alone are not a threat. However, Microsoft does not have the right to install anything on your PC and mine without our consent. And this is far from the first time this has happened, as in the past it has done the same with Antivirus, more recently with Microsoft Edge and now with a version of Office.

For now, we can only wait for Microsoft’s justification, as it has so far not commented on this.
