Trend Micro Offers Tips For Gamers To Protect Personal Data (UPDATE)

Update: It looks like we messed up here and failed to notice Trend’s image includes a few facts that have since changed about the Xbox One and Kinect. The biggest one is that the Kinect is no longer “always on,” as Microsoft has pointed out previously. Changes made in the wake of consumer outcry changed the Xbox One so that Kinect was no longer required to run the machine, and Microsoft has said players are free to control when the Kinect is on or off.

While Trend’s infographic also assumes that it’s possible for diabolical things to be done with personal user data — and it is a good idea to protect your personal information as a matter of caution – Microsoft also has said it has no intention of selling any Kinect user data.
