Use this panel to reset the privacy settings in Flash Player:

  • If you select Always Deny and then confirm your selection, any website that tries to use your camera or microphone will be denied access. You will not be asked again if a website can use your camera or microphone. This action applies both to websites you have already visited and to those you haven't yet visited.
  • If you select Always Ask and then confirm your selection, any website that tries to use your camera or microphone must ask your permission. This action applies both to websites you have already visited and to those you haven't yet visited.

If you previously selected Remember in the Privacy Settings panel to permanently allow or deny access for one or more websites, selecting Always Ask or Always Deny has the effect of deselecting Remember for all those websites. In other words, the selection you make here overrides any previous selections you may have made in the Privacy Settings panel.

After you select either Always Ask or Always Deny (or instead of doing so), you can specify privacy settings for individual websites that you have already visited. For example, you might select Always Deny here and then use the Website Privacy Settings Panel and select Always Allow for individual websites that you know and trust.

For an overview of issues relating to privacy, see What are privacy settings? in the discussion of the Settings Manager.
