    Cloud-delivered protection

    Hello all! I was curious as to what personal information is collected about me, if I turn on the 'cloud-delivered protection' in Windows defender security center? I have read the 'privacy statement' multiple times. I have already 'removed', if you will,
    any and all allowed shareable content. I guess my question boils down to: Will any additional private data be submitted? If I activate the 'cloud-delivered protection', will it automatically turn on some of the aforementioned settings I have intentionally
    turned off?

    Also, the Windows defender security center (Under the virus & threat protection settings tab) says that the cloud-delivered protection "Works best with Automatic sample submission turned on". I have zero intentions of turning the automatic sample submission
    on.

    It is my understanding, from their 'privacy statement', that Windows will get my data with or without my consent, if they really want it. I would really appreciate any feedback from those who have enabled this 'cloud-delivered protection', and if any of
    their settings have been automatically changed by Windows?

    Any advice will be good advice.

    Thank you for your time and attention.

    Derek

    Cloud-delivered protection

    Thank you very much for your timely response. Enabling the 'cloud-delivered protection' claims to allow for the viruses and malware to be detected quicker. Is this true for your case? Or is there some fine print I have not seen.

    I am a nobody with very little to hide, but with what little information I do have on my laptop (statistics, college course work (Very expensive and detailed chemical reactions), resumes, etc., I would enjoy the peace of mind of knowing that what I choose
    to put on my laptop, is for my eyes only. Not a third party vendor that Microsoft employs.

    Being a certified Chemist, my course work goes into enough detail that, I personally believe, in good faith and consensus, that non Chemists DO NOT need to get their hands on the information that was required of me to complete my degree and certification.

    Cloud-delivered protection

    Only thing the 'cloud' might do is upload something that appears suspicious for further analysis - things that do computing things they haven't seen in the wild. Show me some chemist text and I'll say, yep, looks like some chemistry thingies. It painful
    for me trying to remember how to spell acetaminophen & just trying to write the word
    caffeine makes me nervous.

    Recall only one downloaded & appeared instantly suspect - was in a zip package that never was unzipped. CCleaner that made the news a while back. Rare here to discover computer virus - my virus mostly would come delivered by the us postal service &
    fedex sneezing on my paper mail and package deliveries.
