Privacy Statement Explained
During the system setup process, users will be given access to Microsoft's Privacy Statement directly.
In addition, it will be possible to navigate quickly to different privacy settings such as ads, diagnostics, location, and tailored experiences. A special “learn more” section explains how the collected location, speech recognition, diagnostics, tailored experiences, and ad data will be used.
App Permission Confirmation
In Windows 10 Fall Creators Update, apps installed from the Windows Store will show a special dialog when they need access to the camera, contacts, and other personal information and options.
Android users should be familiar with this feature, as it exists in Android for a long time.
Windows 10 Fall Creators Update is expected to be released on October 17, 2017. These new features will come to the production branch at the same time.
