Can we prevent the devices from sending the diagnostic data to Microsoft?

    Hey, Thanks for reaching out to us.

    Yes, you can.

    1. Please navigate to Windows-> Restrictions-> Allow Device Functionality. 
    2. Under ‘Allow Device Functionality’, you will find the option ‘Telemetry’.
    3. Telemetry collects diagnostic data from a Windows device and sends them to Microsoft.
    4. Click on the drop-down list next to the option ‘Telemetry’. You will be able to find different options:  Disallow, Limited, Allow.
    • Disallow: If you choose this, the off option will be checked in the device.
    • Limited: On choosing Limited, users can send only basic data to Microsoft.
    • The allowed option is the default choice. This sends the diagnostic data to Microsoft.

    Please choose the option based on your requirements. Note to associate targets and save the policy.
