    Removing your data from microsoft

    A while, back, I used to let Microsoft collect data about me. How can I delete that data from Microsoft ?
    (Typing and inking data, etc ...)

    I still want to have a Microsoft account, but get rid of all my data. I can trust companies with that no more.
    Does Microsoft share its bugs with NSA before fixing them so that they may exploit them? : linux

    There might be a quicker way, but this should do it

    Go to in your web browser
    at the top left click the cog wheel and select settings
    scroll to the bottom where it say personalization and you will see a link to manage personal info

    Hi Marron, go to Profile Microsoft Account and manage your data there.

    You are never going to get rid of any traces that is out there on the Internet. Anything Microsoft collects for searches in, is attached to your IP your ISP gives you, along with the search you made. In your Live account, it will hold any info that you allow it.

    Even if you set your settings to not report what is happening in the Windows OS. Anytime you are on the Internet, every seeing eye is watching what you are doing.
