Personal Data Dashboard

Microsoft has a long tradition of commitment and investment in consumer privacy—most recently being recognized as one of the top "Most Trusted Companies for Privacy." The Microsoft Personal Data Dashboard is one of our latest efforts on how we can continue to make your privacy our priority. It is a central location for key portions of your online personal information associated with different Microsoft services.

The Microsoft Personal Data Dashboard lets you view your personal online data and helps you control how it is used by Microsoft. To access your Personal Data Dashboard, sign in to your Microsoft account and visit http://choice.microsoft.com/data/ or click on the AdChoices icon and select Personal Data Dashboard, where you can view and manage your personal information on the following tabs:

  • My Profile contains your profile details.
  • My Data includes your recent Bing search history, interests, and brand preferences.
  • My Choices displays the Microsoft services that are allowed to use your information.
  • More Services provides links to other Microsoft services that may store and use your information.

My Profile lets you manage details of your Microsoft profile, such as your name and information about your profession and education.

To update your profile, click or tap Edit your profile.
