Telemetry is fine, as long as they inform you, Mozilla does this, soon as you run the browser.
Along with the severe amount of bloatware in the latest set of drivers. I for one am not too happy
It could also be a security risk that could be exploited.
NVIDIA Adds Telemetry to Latest Drivers; Here's How to Disable It
Errr.... that was linked to in the first post mate!
lol, you did read post ... 1, and the thread title ?
Anyone being paranoid about this needs to go see a doctor have their head checked.
The title of this thread is inaccurate. It's Geforce experience, not the drivers themselves that collect data.
This is actually the EULA from the Nvidia website, not Geforce experience. I wont be using their 'services' in that case.
This is the Gefore experience EULA
GeForce Experience collects data to improve the application experience; this includes crash and bug reports as well as system information needed to deliver the correct drivers and optimal settings. NVIDIA does not share any personally identifiable information collected by GeForce Experience outside the company. NVIDIA may share aggregate-level data with select partners, but does not share user-level data. The nature of the information collected has remained consistent since the introduction of GeForce Experience 1.0. The change with GeForce Experience 3.0 is that this error reporting and data collection is now being done in real-time.
I'm still not going to install it, I have no need for it
problem with all that data harvest and drm running in background it cause stuttering and problems in games and generally slows and bogs your system down on a permant basis i wont update new nvidia drivers for a while now if it was amd people be going crazy but nvidia get away with more people love the brand they just accept it theres alot of unwanted junk and process in nvidia drivers since pascal cards arrived you can winrar the driver remove alot of it just install the driver and physx but on the latest driver theres different driver service -nvidia.exe in system32 which if you disable screws the driver , i use older driver 155 i think you can disable driver service or switch it manual use nvidia inspector make adjustments
but i hope you all know that shadowplay primary function is not recording games... and now you know why to use you need to be connected to the net....
(like microsoft xbox recording, what was integrated in system and noone know about it when win10 was released)
paranoid is wrong word ,if nvidia say ok you have use telementry i say ok i stop buying your cards its called the right to make CHOICES not paranoid, google microsoft they want your data watch there ads for there benefit to make money they dont care about me , if you website service or whatever is FREE it means FREE so people block your ads or telementy its there right and choice to do so, if you dont like people block the spying and data harvest you go behind a paypal wall so everyone is paying for your service or content
It is a problem with mandatory login
It is a problem not having the choice to disable your data gathering from us
Why cant they simply give the customer the choice when installing the driver ?
The more crap that comes from nvidia, the more im willing to sacrifice value/performance and go AMD. I would already choose AMD if both where equal on performance.
I dont have any of this telemetry (375.70), but i have never installed Geforce Experience.
It's hardly paranoia. Personally I simply do not like stuff running in the background if it does not need to be. Also if it is running and sending data, I would prefer to be asked first if this is ok with me. Which it would if it is going to improve things by collecting data, but the fact is I wasn't asked and It doesn't need to be running, therefore: disabled. End of story.
Anyone making such a blanket statement is the one who needs their head checked actually. You don't sound very bright making this rather ignorant and loaded statement.
You're probably one of these people who installs windows, touches nothing, installs 100 programs and never checks to see if they add startup entries or services, has 200 processes in the background, all default services, then complains when his games run like crap and stutter etc or experiences network issues or whatever else.
There is absolutely nothing wrong with being meticulous and minimalist even with today more powerful PCs. But hey who am I to argue with you if you want to let your PC do whatever it wants...but just be aware not everyone is like you and some of us like to make sure nothing happens on our PC without our permission and it's a practice that has served us well.
Meanwhile your kind will be whining about problems that were brought about by your own simple mindset of "just leave everything as it is, because I don't understand it, it must be fine, it's running for a reason so I better not touch it. But why are my games crashing and running like crap? "
Next time think before you type eh?
I think I'm in the clear. But then again I'm using older drivers.
Will re-check when I update the drivers.
Telemetry done right, is good telemetry imo.
But it's rarely done right unfortunately and people should have a choice to participate or not.
I did not delete any entries, 375.70 driver - no telemetry. (i have never installed Geforce Experience)
I actually had the Telemetry on my system still after I uninstalled GFE. But you could add
126.96.36.199 (as seen in this wireshark screenshot) to your hosts file if you do feel autoruns is not enough or you reinstall and the settings revert.
There's nothing paranoid about disliking your personal information being collected.
I just never understood and still don't understand the rampant "my privacy!!"
Wtf are you doing on your PC that's so sensitive? I can give a flying **** if they watch my pr0n habits, surfing and gaming. I feel bad for them, it's a pretty boring, average life.
The only time this stuff frustrates me is when it starts effecting performance of a game. If everything is running fine. Watch away.
And for the "what about secure info like banks, etc" That **** is sitting there for anyone to hack. If it's gonna get hacked, it's gonna get hacked.
Give in to Orwells 1984 already, it's not going anywhere.
people who make money from it are happy with it and with data collection and forced adverts emails trying sell you stuff theres massive amounts of money being made thats why they force it without give you any option to choose what you share or view , google youtube is a good exanple, teenagers on there playing gta for 2 hours a week earning more than a doctor , the money is way too much for what there doing , if they was harvest data for science donate all money to hospitals education charitys i dont think people have much of a problem with it then
