Microsoft Windows 11: Microsoft is preparing to bring a new tool like the feature of Windows 11, iOS app. The company is bringing more privacy features to its users with Windows 11 and making the service used through apps more transparent. In fact, according to the latest beta release, in the new update, Windows 11 users will get information about which apps are using their microphone, camera or location to work on the device. The new tool will be available under the ‘Privacy and Security’ option, which will be present in the main settings of the operating system.
The details of this new Windows 11 privacy tool were shared by Dave Weston, Microsoft’s Vice President – Enterprise and OS Security, last week. It has been learned that with the new tool Windows 11 users will also get a complete history of all the features accessed by the apps and also know when it was last accessed.

Such a feature is already available on mobile phones
As we mentioned that Windows 11 is going to act like the privacy of the iOS app. Let us know that under the ‘Privacy Auditing’ of the iOS app, users can see which apps are using the microphone for location.
In some years privacy settings have been made only for mobile devices, but we forget that PC (computer) also plays an important role in today’s time. iOS, iPadOS, and Android 12 show users all the information about apps, and what tools they access on the device or require permissions. In such a situation, now this feature of Windows 11 will prove to be very useful.
