It will allow you to have temporary administrative rights to your workstation, or to just a single application/executable on demandor elevate their devices to Administrative (or Admin) status. This platform will replace Privileges for all Mac users.
Running as a standard user on your computer is a security best practice that helps protect our network from potential threats and reduces the risk of accidental changes or damage to your university-managed device. Administrative or Admin user level should be reserved for specific tasks such as software installs or uninstalls, updates, etc.
