Earlier in the day we reported that Microsoft has released a new Windows 10 Build 17704 for Fast and Skip Ahead Insiders. The latest build brought many new features to Microsoft Edge, a new Skype app and also new improvements to the Privacy section of Windows 10.

With the latest build Microsoft has made sure that they are concerned with the Privacy of their users and have rolled out the Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer.

The Diagnostic Data Viewer gives info of the data which is being collected by Microsoft and the Redmond Giant allows the Windows 10 users the option to see Problem Reports like crashes and bugs reported by the Insiders for Microsoft to work on.

Windows 10 users will be able to get details like the application or component which has created the bug report along with the time as to when the report was generated and sent to the Redmond Giant.

Microsoft has proved earlier also that they are committed towards improving the privacy experience of Windows 10 users and this update is expected to provide users with the much wanted proof.

The Windows Diagnostic Data Viewer is expected to be made available for all Windows 10 users once Redstone 5 is available for download this fall. Microsoft in a note explains: “Our promise to upholding the highest standards of privacy will continue to be a top concern. When you use our products and services, we want you to feel confident that having great experiences and features does not mean sacrificing your privacy. It’s your device. You deserve to know what’s happening on it,”.

Microsoft has been criticized on lot of occasions during the making of Windows 10 for collecting users data without proper authorization and hence has now decided to give Windows 10 users full control of the data they send to Microsoft server’s.

Microsoft is expected to bring in more privacy improvements to the feature in upcoming builds before the public launch of Redstone 5 at the end of this year.
