Hey there, in this video I will run through some Windows 10 privacy settings you should turn off if you want to protect your privacy or limit the amount of data you want to share with Microsoft and third party apps.

I go through the Windows 10 Privacy Settings that I turned off however this may limit some functionality such as the microphone and camera which you may want to use. Use your own judgement as to what you want to turn off.

Hopefully this video has highlighted the ways in which Microsoft tracks your data, how it shares it and how you can protect your privacy in Windows 10.

Let me know in the comments what other Windows 10 settings you have turned off to protect your privacy and if I have missed anything important.
