Ever wondered if your apps are spying on you? Now you can find out

September 29, 2022

Taking control of your privacy is a hot topic right now.

Android and iOS have permission settings, so you can control which apps can access your information.

And now Microsoft is improving this in Windows 11.

It’s testing a new feature called Privacy Auditing.

As well as controlling which applications can access your camera and microphone, you’ll also have a log showing the access history.

And not just for your AV. You’ll see which apps have accessed your screenshots, messages, and location data.

That’s great for spotting suspicious activity and keeping your sensitive data safe.

The feature’s still in testing. However, you should find it under app settings in your privacy and security menu when it’s released.

In the meantime, if you’d like someone to look over the data permissions on your business’s devices, get in touch.
