Windows 10 and privacy

Protecting your privacy is important to us and we want you to understand how to set up your privacy settings in the best way for you.

To operate at its most basic level, Windows 10 collects and uses a limited set of data.

To make your device more personal and delightful to you, we give you choices to use additional features. These features are optional, and they work better if Windows 10 understands your interests and preferences.

To dive in to a particular area, choose from: Cortana, Camera, Feedback and diagnostics, Location, Microsoft Edge, Speech, inking, and typing, Windows Hello, Wi‑Fi Sense, and Windows update delivery optimization.
