Microsoft increases transparency with respect to user data. This is why it will modify the data that users share from their computers. After Windows 10 gained a reputation among users for “spying on them”. Although the shared diagnostic data is for system improvements. Still, the company wants to offer more transparency. In another attempt to give Windows 10 users more control over their data.

The Redmond people are making some changes to the new Windows 10 build. They are modifying their Configuration app specifically. In the latter are the alternatives to share data. The basic diagnostic data will be “required data”. While the full diagnostic data will be “optional data”. This way Windows 10 will make it easier to change the sharing of diagnostic data

Microsoft seeks to increase transparency with users

The required data corresponds to the current basics. Otherwise, the optional data will gather information based on the user’s decision. The required data will include aspects such as IP address and the type and version of the device. Microsoft needs this data to maintain and improve its products and services.

On the other hand, optional data will become less critical information. For example, images that people insert into Word documents. These are needed to provide better image options. Like when a business customer selects optional settings. Microsoft will offer more detailed Group Policy settings. This will allow the organization to configure what data it collects.

For years, the company has been trying to convince people that Windows 10 doesn’t violate users’ privacy. Yet the company collects a bewildering amount of data. To monitor its reputation, Microsoft has given Windows 10 a Privacy Panel. This gives users more control over the application’s permissions. These changes are the latest effort to make Microsoft increases transparency. The company also says it will share more details as it moves towards the commercial version. This leaves us a little more confident about our privacy. However, it is better to be safe than sorry. So check out this post about a tool to protect your privacy in Windows 10.
