Latest Windows Insider Build Shows New Privacy Screen Settings

In a blog post yesterday Microsoft showed off a new privacy screen settings layout available now to Windows Insiders. The release will come this Spring for non-insiders, and Microsoft says "This new design conveys focused information to help our customers make focused choices about their privacy and offers two new settings for Inking & Typing and Find my device." However not everyone will get the same screen, others will get seven individual screens, each for a single privacy setting. Microsoft hopes that with releasing multiple experiences, they will be able to determine the best experience to roll out.

Making it clearer and easier to find understand, and ultimately turn everything off is a good thing. Hopefully in a few more years up updates we'll just get a global "OFF" switch.

We’re excited about the new Windows 10 update coming this spring that will deliver these new privacy set up experiences. All customers can review and update their privacy settings at any time in Start > Settings > Privacy.
