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. If you are already using Windows 10, you will get notifications that prompt you to choose your privacy settings. The Redmond giant has made a decision to redesign the privacy settings experience from the start.
So that is useful.
Where to find the full list of changes - Those of you wanting to find out about all the Windows 10 Insider preview build 15002 changes can do so via Microsoft's blog post, which gives plenty of screen grabs and feature animations too! Now there are three levels, but in the Creators Update there will be an option to switch between basic and full data collection levels. You'll be required to choose your privacy settings (shown below) before moving on to install Windows 10 or updating it. While those problems have been worked out since, soon Windows 10 users will be able to opt-out of driver updates entirely when using the Windows Update tool.
The basic telemetry option will now only collect what Myerson calls "data that is vital to the operation of Windows" - including "the capabilities of your device, what is installed, and whether Windows is operating correctly ..." A new feature will automatically reduce the blue light from the PC during night and Windows Ink enhancements include an updated Windows Ink Pen, Pencil and a highlighter control. The privacy dashboard is available immediately to all users-just log into your Microsoft account and click the Privacy tab.
Microsoft has also promised that Windows 10 Creators update will have a better privacy experience from the start.
The new options will make it easier for users to understand the implications of their selections. We want you to be informed about and in control of your data, which is why we're working hard on these settings and controls. As of now, the update is limited to people who have signed up to Beta test windows but expect these to be rolled into the incoming creator's update. This continued effort to allow users more visibility and control over what kind of personal data is collected is still a welcome improvement. For all that the general public hated Microsoft's nagware, it undeniably worked, driving Windows 10 adoption more quickly than any previous operating system.
