    If you're looking for content on what each telemetry level means and how to configure it in your organization, see Configure Windows telemetry in your organization.

    Learn about the network connections that Windows components make to Microsoft and also the privacy settings that affect data that is shared with either Microsoft or apps and how they can be managed by an IT Pro.

    If you want to minimize connections from Windows to Microsoft services, or configure particular privacy settings, this article covers the settings that you could consider. You can configure telemetry at the lowest level for your edition of Windows, and also evaluate which other connections Windows makes to Microsoft services you want to turn off in your environment from the list in this article.

    Some of the network connections discussed in this article can be managed in Windows 10 Mobile, Windows 10 Mobile Enterprise, and the July release of Windows 10. However, you must use Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1511 or Windows 10 Education, version 1511 to manage them all.

    In Windows 10 Enterprise, version 1511 or Windows 10 Education, version 1511, you can configure telemetry at the Security level, turn off Windows Defender telemetry and MSRT reporting, and turn off all other connections to Microsoft services as described in this article to prevent Windows from sending any data to Microsoft. We strongly recommend against this, as this data helps us deliver a secure, reliable, and more delightful personalized experience.

    We are always working on improving Windows 10 for our customers. We invite IT pros to join the Windows Insider Program to give us feedback on what we can do to make Windows 10 work better for your organization.
