Microsoft is soon going to introduce new privacy features in its upcoming Windows 10 Redstone 4 update. New privacy features will let users have more control over Apps and kind of data Apps can access from the system. At first glance, it seems very similar to Android permission feature where the user can manually manage any App’s permissions and decide what data an App can access from the device.
New privacy features have already been rolled out to users registering for the Windows Insiders program, and the stable roll-out is expected to be released to all users with upcoming Redstone 4 update this spring.
Microsoft Apps or first party Apps like stock File Explorer, Paint 3D would not have any impact with this new feature because ultimately Microsoft is going to manage the system, but it would be very interesting to see how Microsoft is going to manage new privacy features for third-party Apps.
Redstone 4 update will also bring more changes to the Windows 10 operating system. The Fonts option will be moved from the classic Control Panel to Windows 10 settings section where the user can manage options like installing, uninstalling and get more information about a particular font easily. Users can also download the new fonts from Microsoft Store directly which was never possible earlier.
The new Windows 10 Redstone 4 update will be publicly known as Windows 10 version 1803 and it will be released in April.
