maintains that the opening up of backdoor access to multiple third parties is orders of magnitude greater in 11 than 10.
I have noticed that there are two different info sections as to what an app has access to in regards to App permissions. One for Windows 10 and one for windows 11. Mostly though with the apps I am looking at have permissions that are 100 percent identical, but since there are two different sections there must be certain third party apps that I am not looking at that are in fact more invasive. Either that or there is certain apps your IT guy really likes in regards to privacy that has yet to make its way on to Windows 11 and he is talking about the amount of apps. More apps = stronger possibility one of the competitors will be better suited for privacy. I can only speculate though.
Also note about 80 percent of the data skimming can be turned off in the security and privacy section in settings with a few more privacy settings that are usually able to be switched to off in the app itself. For example, neflix has access to your call history and texts on default, what the heck!! Just make sure you are looking at app permissions to see what you are getting yourself into. I am sure most people will over look this.
As an aside, he also tells us that third party software vendors are in some cases taking advantage of this 'progress' by refusing to provide backward compatible Win 11 drivers for a variety of applications
I do agree with Dave on this one. There are soo many third party vendors out there and many different views in regards to how to deal with this issue.
I think it is really sleazy the way Adobe went about their business. What they did in fact did take advantage of being allowed to go into your system files by turning off your access to this program just as your IT guy stated. Really bad business on that side. I will probably steer clear of them myself after hearing that.
I do like how stardock handles this. By trying to make better products that earn an upgrade. Unfortunately not everyone is going to do this, and therefore third party venders are going to be the main thing to watchout for as we enter the Windows 11 era of computing.
