If you use Hotmail, you might have seen a message that says your mailbox can be upgraded to Outlook.com. In addition to a new look and feel and tools to help you be more productive, Outlook.com offers more privacy. You’re in control of your data, and your personal conversations aren’t used for ads.
We don’t scan your email content or attachments and sell this information to advertisers or any other company. You decide whether to connect your account to any social networks, and you’re in control of who you friend or follow.
