Microsoft is letting Windows Insiders get a preview of its new Windows Diagnostics Data Viewer showing users the data being collected from a Windows device. Wouldn't it be great if you could get that on Android and iOS, too.
There's also an upgraded Privacy Dashboard with an activity page showing the data that is on your Microsoft Account.
Microsoft will, at a later date, include features to enable ...

  • View and manage media consumption data, as well as product and service activity on the Activity History page
  • Export for any of the data you see on the dashboard
  • Delete specific items to allow for greater individual control

  • The Diagnostic Data Viewer shows the exact details sent to Microsoft

    When it gets around to us lowly Windows 10 users, I'll have to play around with it to see if it is helpful or just more admin bloat.
