    Privacy Settings - Multiple User Accounts


    Hi,

    On a PC that has been upgraded to windows 10, if I have 2 user accounts, and set privacy settings etc on the one account so that Windows 10 isnt sending information/downloading stuff etc, will the second account (that has not been setup for the same settings and is rarely used) still send information/download on its own etc?

    Example: On the main account I have turned off Cortana and the "Speech, Inking, Typing". On the second account, I havent done so. Would that account be gathering and sending/receiving information on its own?

    Just need to know if I have to go thru all the office computers and setup the second "Administrator" account as well.

    Thanks!


    :)

    Multiple User Accounts Privacy

    How can I make each User Account private on the same PC?

    I want to keep each User's documents private but share just the Public Folders.

    Multiple User Accounts Privacy

    Hi Kelly,

    Users with Administrative privileges are the only ones who can access documents of other users in a single PC. For us to better assist you, we would like to clarify a few information. Kindly answer the questions below:

    • Are you in the process of setting up the other user accounts?
    • Are you the administrator of this PC?

    If you are still in the process of setting up their accounts, here is an article that you may refer to:
    Set up accounts.

    We'll be waiting for your response.
