Microsoft releases personal data collection tool

Windows 10 users will be able to see precisely what data Microsoft is collecting on them. The new tool called Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer gives you a full breakdown of all data Microsoft collects on you.

It is known that Microsoft collects data about your hardware and software installed on your computer. They also collect data on your computer’s configuration, such as, settings you change or modifications you make.

The application was initially released as an early preview to Windows Insiders before being released in the Microsoft Store.
