A new backdoor into your PC that hackers can exploit


In the search programs and files type in Location and Sensors.

There is a function that allows hackers and network monitors to breach your privacy through the programs that you use thus spying on what you are doing even if you are not using a program.

For example if you recently wrote a journal entry using Word saved it and have opened it since a hacker or network monitor or monitoring program can access your PC through such a sensor and data mine what you have written.

Take precautions on protecting yourself America.

Does anyone else have any knowledge of the Sensor process of Microsoft OS 7 and higher?

It's not a backdoor, nor is it a virus/trojan.


By default, it's turned off and only available if you install a sensor.


If you want to check for yourself, follow the first four instructions:
