Here are the steps to review, manage, and delete diagnostic data that Microsoft collected about your device with new settings included with the Windows 10 April 2018 Update.
It's not a secret that Microsoft collects a bunch of diagnostic data about your device and your activities using Windows 10, apps, and browsing the internet to improve the experience and make product decisions.
However, as a result of the ongoing privacy concerns, complaints, and the fear over a possible built-in "keylogger" — as your typing information is also collected —, Microsoft is trying to be more transparent, and starting with the April 2018 update, Windows 10 introduces new options to increase control over the uploaded data using the new Diagnostics & feedback settings page.
Also, hoping to ease concerns, Microsoft is adding a new data viewer app to allow users to review their data, which includes information like device configuration, hardware information, peripherals, performance data, installed apps, visited websites, speech, location, and a lot more.
