Microsoft: We will collect less telemetry data

Microsoft has just announced a series of changes that are supposed to boost its users' privacy. Changes concern simplified privacy settings in Windows 10, as well as a reduction in the amount of data collected by company customers.

First of all, Microsoft released a new Internet privacy panel that allows users to view and manage their privacy data, such as search history, geography, and information that Cortana's digital assistant will receive for to provide a more personal experience.microsoft

To access this panel, you must log in to your Microsoft account from:

account.microsoft.com/privacy

Redmond promises to add more functions and categories over time.

As far as the changes that come with Windows 10, Microsoft has announced a new setting for users who install the new operating system. The new option replaces the previous Express settings that occur during Windows 10 installation according to the company.

So those who upgrade from Windows 7, Windows 8 or perform a new clean installation should be able to see what Microsoft describes as "simple but important settings," or "simple but important settings," while those who already have Windows 10 will be prompted to update the privacy settings with a notification.

These new settings will come with the upcoming Creators Update.

Telemetry settings in Windows 10 will be simplified from three different levels to two, namely Basic and Full. This means that the Enhanced level will no longer exist, and users who use it will need to change to Basic or Full after installing the Creators Update.

According to Microsoft, what is most important is that the base layer will send far less telemetry data to the company's servers.

"These will include data vital to Windows operation. We use this data to keep Windows and applications safe, up-to-date, and bluetooth, Microsoft says in announcement of new features.
