Cortana was first introduced with Windows Phone 8.1. Since, then Cortana has won many hearts, became a household name and finally entered to other OS platforms. Corona is deeply integrated with Windows 10 and this is now no more a news. Corona is the artificial intelligence personal assistant for Windows 10 users that respond via voice commands besides text commands. Whenever we open Windows 10 PC, Cortana opens automatically detecting sound input. You can delete what Cortana knows about you. The information includes favorites, plans, interests, etc. When Cortana is enabled, the AI assistant uploads information from your device such as calendar, contacts, location triggered by Cortana. It also uploads browsing history to provide Cortana recommendations. If you clear the data, it will affect Microsoft’s ability to provide Cortana’s recommendations and personalize your speech, inking and typing experience on your Windows 10 devices. When you are using Cortana, it sometimes writes data on your behalf in other services.  If you want, you can erase or clear certain information from Cortana.
