    Hi all,
    could anyone tell me what Microsoft mean with 'let applications access my name, picture and other account info'? What info do they mean and how is it used? I've apparently allowed this as its the default setting and I didnt realize I should check it.

    Thanks a mil!

    You have given permission for applications to access personal data to give you better recommendations, address you by name, pre-fill forms, and a myriad of other things. Specifics depend on the application.
