Reports: Chinese contractors listened in on Skype calls

Jan 13, 2020 16:19 IST

A Guardian report has revealed that China-based contractors for tech giant Microsoft had access and listened to audio recordings from its Skype chat service and Cortana virtual assistant. A former Microsoft contractor claimed that he had reviewed thousands of Skype and Cortana recordings from his personal laptop while in Beijing, for around two years. Microsoft has responded to the report, saying it has since updated its privacy policy and has now moved the review program to secure facilities, none of which are based in China.
