Most of the Moment 3 updates seem to center around or tell users more at-a-glance information. For example, this update introduces an at-a-glance VPN (Virtual Private Network) feature. In other words, Microsoft has added a shield icon over the user’s active network connection (which appears in the taskbar by default). No shielding means that certain identifiable elements are exposed from your system to the Internet.
