They are trying to simplify the diagnostic data collection levels, so that reports can maintain on what kind of data is being sent to companies server. For now, the tech giant is planning to introduce three levels but in the new upgrade one can switch between basic and full data collection levels. "We've further reduced the data collected at the Basic level," said Terry Myerson, Microsoft's Windows and Devices Group Executive VP.
Also adding more to the upcoming Creators version Microsoft would add clearer options for disabling certain options like location, speech recognition, recommendations and relevant ads.
