Every smart device now requires you to agree to a series of terms and conditions before you can use it — contracts that no one actually reads. It’s impossible for us to read and analyse every single one of these agreements. But we started counting exactly how many times you have to hit “agree” to use devices when we review them since these are agreements most people don’t read and definitely can’t negotiate.
As with other Windows 10 computers, the HP Elite Dragonfly presents you with multiple things to agree to or decline upon setup.
The mandatory policies, for which an agreement is required, are:
Windows 10 License Agreement
A Microsoft account for sign-in (this can be bypassed if you don’t connect the computer to the internet during setup)
In addition, there is a slew of optional things to agree to
OneDrive back up
Cortana (which allows Microsoft to access your location, location history, contacts, voice input, speech and handwriting patterns, typing history, search history, calendar details, messages, apps, and Edge browsing history)
Device privacy settings: online speech recognition, Find My Device, Inking and Typing, Advertising ID, Location, Diag data, Tailored experiences
HP has another request for your name, region, and email address upon setup, which is then used for support, product improvement, personalized offers, and news updates. All of these are optional.
Add it all up, and you have two mandatory agreements and 15 optional ones.
