Don’t let Cortana collect your information

If you’re using Windows, you might be familiar with Cortana – Microsoft’s adaptive virtual assistant. You probably wouldn’t be surprised that Cortana collects data about you. But did you know that it also collects speech and handwriting patterns, typing histories and more? Here’s how you can restrict the type of data that Cortana collects:

  • Go to Settings.
  • Select Privacy.
  • Choose Inking & typing and toggle the option off.
