What should I do when a "User Account Control" Window appears?

First of all, please don't worry if a window opens when using PhotoSync that asks you if you want to allow this app to make changes to your PC. You should answer these requests with Yes. PhotoSync requires access to your PC as administrator in the following situations:

  • PhotoSync needs to enter exception rules for the built-in Windows firewall
  • When you want to enable or disable the Transfer with PhotoSync context menu extension for Windows Explorer

PhotoSync does not interfere with your Windows system in any other way. The app identifies itself in the user account control with a verified issuer certificate issued to touchbyte GmbH, the creators and publishers of the PhotoSync Companion App.
