  1. Is My Privacy Being Compromised?


    Being a curious sort, I've been looking around and I think this is suspicious?
    Settings>Privacy> Under windows permissions I see everything is turned on by default. I'm not the sharpest pencil in the box BUT I'm finding the descriptions of each "topic" a bit confusing.. See my screen shot. Any advice here?, Thanks Dave BTW I love this place *Smile

    :)

    The moment you stepped online you forfeit privacy, pretty much. Or come to think of it, when you're born.

    Is My Privacy Being Compromised?

    Camera and Microphone Privacy

    Hi Moustafa,

    This issue occurs due to permission issue, driver issue, license for an app is out of sync with the license installed on the computer or if the app is not updated. To give permission to Camera and Microphone app, you may follow
    these steps:

    • Go to Settings.
    • Select Privacy.
    • Look for Camera, make sure that “Let apps use my camera” is turned On. You may choose the apps that can use your camera as well.
    • Go back to Privacy and select Microphone, make sure that “Let apps use my microphone” is turned On. You may choose the apps that can use your microphone as well.

    If the issue persists, we would suggest that you check out this
