What are admin rights? Having administrator rights (sometimes shortened to admin rights) means a user has privileges to perform most, if not all, functions within an operating system on a computer. These privileges can include such tasks as installing software and hardware drivers, changing system settings, installing system updates.
Why users should not have admin rights? An admin user can turn off your protective measures. They can disable your firewall, antivirus, encryption, Group Policy and more. And if the admin is running malware, the malware can do the same.
