Microsoft has launched a new privacy dashboard on the web to help you more easily sort through the bits of data collected by Microsoft services and associated with your account. In short, the page lets you keep an eye on things like location activity, search history and more potentially sensitive information.
When you are signed in with your Microsoft account, you can go to account.microsoft.com/privacy 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.
This is just one of two new prvacy-focused experiences that Microsoft announced today. The other involves a whole new experience coming in the Windows 10 Creators Update for managing your privacy settings. Put together, Microsoft says it's emphasizing transparency to make personal data more visible and easily manageable for users. These changes are ultimately the result of feedback on how Windows 10 handles sensitive data, and it's likely we'll see even more changes in the future as more and more feedback continues to filter through.
