Manage Privacy in Windows

Published: February 29, 2012

Updated: March 26, 2014

Applies To: Windows 8, Windows 8.1

Windows 8.1 and Windows 8 include a variety of technologies that communicate with the Internet to provide increased ease-of-use and functionality. Browser and email technologies are examples, but there are also technologies such as automatic updating that help you obtain the latest software and product information, including bug fixes and software updates. These technologies provide many benefits for users, but they also involve communication with Internet sites, which administrators might want to help control.

You can help control this communication through a variety of options that are built in to individual features, the operating system, and features that are designed for managing configurations across your organization. For example, as an administrator, you can use Group Policy settings to help control the way some features communicate. For other features, you can create an environment in which all communication is directed to the organization’s internal website instead of to an external Internet site.
