PrivacyAdvisorMode (Standard 8 Module Reference)

7/8/2014

Review the applicable Feature modules and any examples for the PrivacyAdvisorMode setting in Windows Embedded 8 Standard (Standard 8).

This setting specifies how to handle privacy concerns in Internet Explorer.

There are two options for protecting private information: InPrivate Browsing and InPrivate Blocking. InPrivate Browsing prevents Internet Explorer from storing data about a browsing session, such as cookies, temporary Internet files, and history. InPrivate Blocking helps prevent websites from automatically sharing details about visits with other websites; to help protect user privacy, some website content may be blocked.

The following table shows the possible values.
