What GitHub information will be shared with Microsoft?

Microsoft is committed to ensuring your privacy. When you sign up for Azure using GitHub, the profile information that’s requested is used to check for the presence of an existing Microsoft account and to create a new account if needed. Once your information enters the Microsoft ecosystem, it’s protected by our terms of service and we don’t share it without your permission. Connecting your GitHub identity to a Microsoft account will not give Microsoft access to your code.
