Microsoft is phoning home the content of your PowerPoint slides.
Were you aware of it: Microsoft is phoning home the content of your PowerPoint slides.
Don't just take my word for it: open up the network monitor of your choice. Close all of your other applications or perform a fresh restart.
Fire up PowerPoint. Turn off all the cloud options. Make a new slide with a title of your choice. Choose "Designer." Look at your network traffic as you do.
It makes sense: the tool is reading your text and suggesting designs/delivering stock photography. But this means that any data that you might want to keep private is being sent to Microsoft.
