Windows 10 is the latest and ultimate operating system provided by Microsoft, being with no doubt the perfect platform for gaming, productivity and general usability due to its intuitiveness and design. However, this operating system is not only about entertainment and work, since other matters were addressed as well to provide the best private and safe experience. For example, with Windows 10 app permissions the software does exactly what the user wants it to do.
Windows 10 app permissions for better privacy: How to set up
Specifically, Windows 10 allows the user to manage the app permissions regarding any application installed on the system, by default or downloaded by the user. This is done for any number of reasons. For example, when apps are going to work, depending on their function they need to access some parts of the hardware of the device.
An app to take photos needs to access the camera in order to take it, being the same case for location and map apps that need to access GPS and other technologies in the phone, tablet or computer to get the location and offer other information.
The thing is, in some cases we need apps to access hardware, especially when we are actually using them actively, but in other cases we do not need them to do so and they still accessing, even if that means losing some aspects of protection and privacy. That is why; it is so important that Windows 10 includes native app permission management to avoid any risk.
To manage app permission in the latest operating system offered by Microsoft is easy. Just click on “Start”, then on the “Setting” button, go to “Privacy” and select from the app list which you want to grant permissions with, by switching on and off. Like this, privacy and safety are guaranteed.
