There is an innovation in Windows 11 that is currently causing a lot of conversations. Apparently, users will have to enter their credit card details in the future to be able to use the operating system.
With a new beta version of Windows 11, installing the operating system requires you to provide credit card information, such as “Fudzilla” mentioned. This is Windows 11 Insider Preview Build 22567.
This shouldn’t change much for many users, because they’ve already stored this information in order to purchase content in the Microsoft Store. Essentially, Microsoft sees credit card information as part of a recently added Microsoft 365 subscription. If there are issues with an expired card, Microsoft will report them to the user.
Windows 11 innovation: Microsoft follows the competition
Microsoft is following the competition with this decision. For example, iOS cannot be used without a credit card. The philosophy behind credit card requirements should be as follows: For Microsoft, the ability to make purchases on a PC is just as important as work or games.
More content is coming with the new Test Build. Among other things, there is a feature called Smart App Control that monitors and blocks new apps if it is found to be dangerous. These innovations should be of great benefit to many users. However, it also has the risk of still filtering out non-malicious software, especially those of small developers.
