14 Sep Windows 10 Fall Creators Update to Feature Several Privacy Settings Changes
Several tech publications have revealed that the Windows 10 with the Fall Creators Update, scheduled to be released on October 17, will feature several “tweaks” to its privacy settings.
The update will now require users to provide permissions to third party apps, similar to behavior found in mobile platforms. Unlike previous versions where permissions are provided implicitly, save for location information, Windows will now ask the user if they want to provide access to each setting that may expose sensitive user information.
It will also be made clearer to users what kind of data the OS will be collecting and when. For Enterprise users, the collection of diagnostic data by Windows Analytics will also be set to a minimum.
