windows 10 has faced a lot of privacy concerns since its introduction. In August of 2016, the Electronic Frontier Foundation accused Microsoft of sending an “unprecedented amount of usage data” back to the company with Windows 10. I wrote a story about this on Medium which you can find here .

In a Windows Blog post , Terry Myerson, Executive Vice President of the Windows and Devices Group, addressed Microsoft’s “continuing commitment to user privacy with Windows 10”.

Microsoft has launched a new web-based privacy dashboard which will let users see what data is being collected. Users can already use it to clear their browsing history, location data, and previous searches.

First, today we’re launching a new web-based privacy dashboard so you can see and control your activity data from Microsoft including location, search, browsing, and Cortana Notebook data across multiple Microsoft services. Second, we’re introducing in Windows 10 a new privacy set up experience, simplifying Diagnostic data levels and further reducing the data collected at the Basic level. These Windows 10 changes are being introduced in a Windows Insider build soon for feedback first and will be rolled out to everyone when the Windows 10 Creators Update becomes available.

We heard that you want better ways to be able to see and manage activity data collected by Microsoft services. Today, we’re taking a step forward in supporting our privacy principle of transparency with the introduction of a new Microsoft privacy dashboard on the web that lets you easily see and manage your activity data.

When you are signed in with your Microsoft account, you can go to to review and clear data such as browsing history, search history, location activity, and Cortana’s Notebook ― all in one place. This is our first step in expanding the tools that give you visibility and control over your data spanning Microsoft products and services, and we will continue to add more functionality and categories of data over time.

We’ve been listening to your feedback and shared how we’re protecting your privacy shortly after the launch of Windows 10. We are continuing this commitment to make it as easy as possible for you to make informed choices about your privacy with Windows 10. With that in mind, in the Creators Update, we are making some changes by simplifying the privacy settings themselves and improving the way we present the privacy settings to you.
