Android privacy updates
The latest Android gives more transparency around the data being accessed by apps while providing simple controls to make informed choices.
With the new privacy dashboard, users can have a simple and clear timeline view of the last 24-hour access to location, microphone and camera and they can also share more context about an app’s data usage with a new permission intent API.
The updates also include two new controls that allow users to quickly and easily cut off apps’ access to the microphone and camera on the device, more control over location data, clipboard read notifications, nearby device permissions and more.

The future of Internet Explorer
Microsoft announced that the Internet Explorer 11 desktop application will be retired on June 12, 2022, adding that the future of Internet Explorer on Windows 10 is in Microsoft Edge.

“With Microsoft Edge, we provide a path to the web’s future while still respecting the web’s past. Change was necessary, but we didn’t want to leave reliable, still-functioning websites and applications behind,” Sean Lyndersay, a partner group program manager of Microsoft Edge at Microsoft wrote in a blog post.
