Windows 10 quick tips: How to protect your privacy

Preston Gralla | Feb. 1, 2016
Worried about possible privacy problems in Windows 10? Here are some quick ways to protect your data.

What else should you do?

All this shouldn't take you more than five or ten minutes and will do a great deal to protect your privacy. However, if you want to dig even deeper into privacy protections, there's something else you can do.

Launch the Settings app and click Privacy. On the left-hand side of the screen, you'll see the various areas where you can get even more granular about privacy -- for example, you can click "Account info" to stop apps from accessing your name, picture and other account information; or click "Call history" to stop apps from accessing your call history from Skype.

These steps can take you a long way towards making sure that Windows 10 doesn't cross the line into gathering data you'd prefer remain private.
