Choose your privacy settings after updating Windows 10

Applies to: Windows 10

Along with our continuing commitment to your privacy with Windows 10, it's important to make sure your privacy settings are also ready. If you’re updating your device to a new Windows 10 version, you may be prompted to review or choose your privacy settings after the update when you sign in with an administrator account.

If you see preselected settings, these are based on what you chose before updating Windows. You can adjust them by turning any toggle on or off, and then selecting Accept. If you don't see preselected settings, you'll need to make new selections by choosing the icon or block text you prefer and then selecting Accept

After installing the update and reviewing your privacy settings, you can change them at any time by selecting the Start  button > Settings  > Privacy . To learn more about Windows 10 and your privacy, see privacy.microsoft.com.
