Microsoft Makes LAPS a Native Windows 11 Feature

Microsoft has integrated the legacy Local Administrator Password Solution, also known as LAPS, right into Windows 11 with the help of the latest preview build shipped to insiders in the Dev Channel.

Worthwhile to learn, however, is the fact that LAPS is just available for Active Directory domain-joined clients, as Microsoft is applying a phased rollout approach for Azure Active Directory users.

“Feature documentation isn’t yet available, if however you have used the legacy LAPS product then many of the features within this latest version is going to be familiar to you,” the organization says.

Furthermore, Windows 11 build 25145 also posseses an growth of App usage history features, that have previously been shipped to testers using the discharge of Windows 11 build 25140.

“Every Microsoft customer should be able to use our products knowing we’ll protect their privacy and provide them the data and tools needed to easily make privacy decisions with confidence,” Microsoft explains.

“The new App usage history features, which began rolling to Insiders with Build 25140, gives users a 7-day history of resource access for Location, Camera, Microphone, Telephone calls, Messaging, Contacts, Pictures, Videos, Music library, Screenshots and apps through the Settings experience. You’ll find this new information under Settings > Privacy & security > App permissions (simply click on one of the app permissions categories for example microphone and check out “Recent activity”).”

Bear in mind, however, that all these improvements are presently available exclusively for Windows insiders, and given they are area of the Dev channel, a specific ETA regarding when the production rollout could start isn’t available.

Microsoft reminds everybody that the changes it makes within the Dev channel don’t come with a release date since they might be dropped before this happens in the initial place.
