Microsoft will introduce new privacy options in Windows 10 Redstone 4
Microsoft will launch a series of new privacy options in Windows 10 Redstone 4, and the recent preview release to Fast Ring gives us a range of details. Basically, Windows 10 Redstone 4 will allow users to control applications to access photos, videos and document libraries on local drives.
This means that each application can be configured to be granted access to system folders, but it is important to note that the new strategy seems to be devoted to applications in the Microsoft Store.
The Video Privacy Control setting shows that users using this device will be able to use the settings on this page to select whether the app has video gallery access. Users can stop Win32 software from accessing the library. This means that third-party applications like music players can only read files in the Music folder and cannot access system folders if the user explicitly authorizes them.
However, applications like Paint 3D, Windows Defender, and File Explorer seem to be immune to new privacy controls because they are Microsoft’s own first-party applications. According to Microsoft’s release schedule, Microsoft will offer this feature to all users on Windows 10 Redstone 4 released in April.
