Recently some posts have appeared on Reddit claiming that screenshots show Origin collects information well beyond its EULA. These claims are being disputed by EA, as they have done in the past when it came to what information Origin can collect. EA also went as far as to state once again that Origin does not have access to private files or browser files.
We have seen the screenshot, which you can access on the Reddit page, but we don’t see the connection. We just can’t see a company as large as EA going beyond their EULA to collect personal data from customers who have freely given them their names, possible credit card information, and more.
What would be the end goal? If they are spying on us, then we are glad to see someone is paying very close attention.
