    Jigsaw Webcam


    Hi, can someone please explain why Microsoft wants access to a webcam, my internet connection and my home or works network?

    I'm assuming this is a jigsaw game on the Microsoft Store?

    if it is, then it needs an internet connection for advertisements, it needs your webcam to jigsaw "your face", the home network, i'm not sure, but seeing as it may be a multiplayer game, it's entirely possible it might want to find other players on your home network to connect to.

    I don't have a webcam, does that mean I'm not allowed to D/L it?

    it needs, but it can't have, you can still download it, it'll just mean that the webcam image will be black (albeit you've created the hardest jigsaw in the world).
