Customer Feedback Option sends personal information RRS feed

  • Question

  • I activated the Customer Feedback Option in SyncToy 2.0 and looked at what it was sending to the network. In the packets sent to port 1745, I was surprised to find my login name and the name of my machine, as the following string:

    <Login Name>.<Machine Name>.Synctoy.exe

    Both, especially the login name, I consider to be personal information and I do not think these should be collected and sent out to the network.

    Have I missed something?

    Thanks

  • Hi - It is supposed to be a user id and machine id and it is not supposed to be user-recognizable. I need to confirm this - but anytime you have concerns ( like you do now), please deactivate the CustomerFeedbackOption. Let me know if you run into any trouble with this.

     

    Thanks
