    I have read that elsewhere. But why do you have to do it online? :confused:

    Why not just do it from your device? :confused:

    Its just corporate BS, beware, MS will continue to stick its greasy finger up your bottom in other ways :mad:

    What makes you think that M$ uses a greasy finger?
    I think they prefer you to be bone dry

    You would notice a dry finger much more than a greasy one. Wait till you hit your 50s to find out :D

    It’s at least positive that they are trying to react to public concern about privacy. Otherwise, I doubt anything will change in practice.

    It’s also (hopefully) positive that they say they don’t have any info on my account, as I don’t use it for obvious reasons.

    OK, so to use their "privacy dashboard" I have to sign in with a Microsoft account? Give them my identity, then they scan me for privacy issues? What a joke!

    Good point. For them to let you delete some data, you first have to let them collect more data on you. A kind of Trojan gift horse.

    It seems a no-brainer to prevent them from collecting more data on you in the first place by not using a MS account.
