    Hello, I have upgraded from using a Laptop with Windows 8.1 to windows 10 home.

    I sign in with my Microsoft Account and have a seperate Admin Account.

    Some Qs
    1. Is using a Microsoft Account a bad idea?

    2. What settings do I need to enable/disable to maximise Privacy?

    3. My laptop does not have Encryption so could someone recommend a provider?.

    4. In relation to encryption, is encryption meaningless if someone knows a persons password/login details.

    For example how easy is it for someone to record a users password by using keylogging or Cameras when the user signs in to their Laptop/Pc. If they do obtain the Password is the Encryption rendered meaningless.

    Thanks for any help offered.
