Microsoft has recently unveiled a range of new security features for its latest operating system, Windows 11. These enhancements aim to provide users with increased privacy control and protection against potential threats. One notable addition is the introduction of new app privacy settings, which grant users transparency and control over their personal information. 

Another noteworthy feature is the glanceable VPN (Virtual Private Network). When users establish a recognized VPN connection, a small shield icon appears on the taskbar, indicating a secure connection. This visual cue allows users to quickly verify their VPN status. 

Furthermore, Microsoft has included customization options for the VPN feature via Quick Settings. This empowers users to align the VPN settings according to their personal preferences and requirements.
