What are the security, privacy and storage settings in Flash Player? What is the role of Settings Manager in Flash Player?
Flash Player is being used mostly in websites. It is the software which is needed for viewing the animations and the videos by using web browser like system programs. It is seen that Adobe would give you the options for controlling the applications and the FLV or the SWF contents. The Flash Player Settings Manager would then control the storage settings, security settings, global privacy settings and the automatic notification settings. This would specify if the websites ask permission before mic and camera are going to use and would also give security by preventing the storing of information from the unknown websites. This Settings Manager would then try to specify in how much time the Flash Player would get updated.
The following are about various settings present in Flash Player:
- Security settings
- Privacy settings
- Storage settings
By providing the security settings, Adobe designed Flash Player. You would not need to allow and deny the access in many situations. As FLV and SWF content, when become complicated, the Flash Player would offer the users more security and privacy. When you are going to use the older FLV content you have a choice of using older and the latest security rules. The dialogue boxes would appear asking about the choice for whether you want to access data from that in the website. The latest player would have more improved security settings and it would be more secure.
In order to access the applications which would run in Flash Player, you need to access to the camera and/or microphone available on the system. The privacy settings would let you specify if you need the applications from a particular website, for providing such access. In the dialogue box for security settings would ask for permission to access the microphone or camera. You could allow or deny that request. You would be aware of this by visiting their website. In order to specify all website privacy settings you have to use the Global Privacy Settings panel and for individual website, use Website Privacy Settings panel.
The applications which are running in Flash Player would need to store information in the system. Local storage settings would specify how much disk space would be used to store. For the websites that you do not visit, you have to use the Global Storage Settings panel. You need to use Website Storage Settings panel for the storage settings for already visited websites. You would be able to set storage to some memory or to some specific applications in that website.
