one of my windows admin say we should not use unsafe font like opensans

 

by mentioning the following article

 

https://www.tenforums.com/tutorials/139087-enable-disable-untrusted-font-blocking-windows-10-a.html

 

but in MSForum it is says that setting is dropped

 

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/microsoft-security-baselines/dropping-the-quot-untrusted-font...

 

which is correct ?

 

Thanks

@shivashankars - as the blog post here indicates, in Windows 10 there's no longer any need to or security value in blocking untrusted fonts.

@Aaron_Margosis  Thanks for you reply.
