  • When looking in 32bit Windows 10 Insider Preview 17672.1000, Settings, Privacy, Location, Choose apps that can use your precise location; I can see Win32WebViewHost requests to see my precise location.
    I do not remember seeing this in I.P. 17666.1000?
    What exactly is this please?
    As an addition; I was using Edge to report here. But as usual with Edge I am unable to add an image attachment and I had to use IE11.
    Second addition; Using Edge for my first attempt I had to sign in to confirm my identity. I ticked the box to say keep my identity and not be required to sign in again. But when I switched to IE11 I had to sign in again and request to keep my identity.
    Is identity browser particular?

  • Just updated to 1803 via MCT,went to go change my settings and this appeared under both camera and microphone in the privacy section. What is this app? Didn’t have it when running 1709.
    I’ve also same query. Somebody please, tell if it suspicious. Do this spy through our camera ?
