    Microsoft Introduces New Windows 10 Privacy Settings to Address Spying Claims.

    Microsoft has often been criticized for the privacy settings it implemented in Windows 10, with many users and privacy advocates accusing the firm of trying to spy on its customers with the operating system.

    Starting with Windows 10 Creators Update preview build 15019, Microsoft is introducing new options in the setup experience that are specifically supposed to address these claims, as part of a broader plan that was announced by Windows boss Terry Myerson earlier this month.

    Specifically, the new privacy controls are displayed in the setup screen to give users more control over their privacy from the very beginning, with Microsoft aiming at offering a similar experience to everyone with the release of the Creators Update in April.

    Changes in this build
    This build officially removes the Express settings, but the company says that users would get a different configuration of their privacy options based on the version they are upgrading from.

    Any improvement in transparency with respect to privacy practices is always welcome. Especially since many are wary of the data collection in windows 10 and feel like it's been forced down their throats(but who don't mind it in their phones). This move is a positive one and will help windows and other ms products in the long run.
