    Activity history keeps posting to Microsoft account...


    I disable activity history in Windows 10 setting, but when I go to https://account.microsoft.com/privacy/activity-history I still sporadically see activity history saved up there. It's not completely up to date. Currently, it is Saturday the 13th, but the data is from Thursday the 11th.

    I am using a Gigabyte Aero 15 laptop. It used to have to Microsoft Azure AI program, which I recently uninstalled. I do not know if that was what was doing this.

    How I do I get this data from stopping posting?

    Hello,

    Do you have any other Windows 10 computer that you sign in to with the same Microsoft account that may have activity history turned on?

    If you clear your activity history, does it still generate new history later?

    Nope. My other computers have been off all week, and the activity logs correspond to the laptop. I disabled full diagnostic data. I also followed a couple of your guides to change my group policy (Enable or Disable Collect Activity History in Windows 10 | Tutorials Enable or Disable Sync Activities from PC to Cloud in Windows 10 | Tutorials). There seems to be some delay between the activity and when it goes up. Thursday, the logs went through Tuesday. This afternoon (Saturday) the logs went up through Thursday. I am betting tomorrow morning (if my changes don't make a difference), there will be logs from Friday (I actually don't remember if I did anything with my laptop Friday).

    It will be interesting to hear if your activity history is still being collected after the date of it being disabled.

    I had disabled it the day I setup the laptop a couple weeks ago. The laptop uses some Microsoft Azure AI stuff that I recently uninstalled. Maybe that was doing something? Maybe the diagnostic settings?

    We'll know if it stops since you uninstalled it.

    So far nothing in the Microsoft privacy section. I will keep monitoring.

    Still nothing on the MS privacy website. I double checked, I did use the laptop on Friday night (I didn't initially remember if it was before or after midnight, it was before).

    Hopefully in the morning and going forward it stays empty.
