Microsoft makes Windows Recall ‘opt-in’ after privacy, security backlash – Computerworld

A “proof of presence” is also needed to search in Recall or view a timeline. 

In addition, Microsoft will add “just in time” decryption protected by Windows Hello Enhanced Sign-in Security (ESS). This means Recall snapshots will “only be decrypted and accessible when the user authenticates,” Pavan Davuluri, corporate vice president for Windows and Devices, said in a blog post, providing an “an additional layer of protection to Recall data.” 

The changes will be made before the Recall feature becomes available on Copilot+ PCs beginning June 18.
