Changing sharing settings for apps and accounts

If you've connected your Microsoft account to another account such as Facebook, LinkedIn or Twitter, you can choose what information you want to be shared between the two accounts. For example, if you connect a Facebook account, you can choose to show info such as your Facebook contacts' email addresses and birthdays in Windows RT 8.1 and Windows 8.1 apps such as Mail, People and Calendar.

Microsoft won't share information associated with your Microsoft account without your permission.

To view or change sharing settings for an account you've added

  1. Go to the Microsoft account web page and sign in.

  2. Tap or click Permissions, then tap or click Manage accounts.

  3. Tap or click Edit by the account you want to review.

  4. Review the settings, make any changes you want, then tap or click Save or Connect.
