Bugzilla – Bug 1173957
screen saver shows private pictures public
Last modified: 2020-07-09 20:53:34 UTC
if in XFCE -> screen saver settings (Bildschirmschoner-Einstellungen)
the feature "random" ( Zufall) is selected,
usual not for any people saved pictures will be shown on the display.
It is a nice feature, but not so good for data protection.
No warnings after select "random".
No selection-list of pictures or directories for deny or allow is given.

Random image screensaver settings
You're right with the missing warning and the poor documentation.
But you can select which folder is used for the picture screensaver.
Choose "Slideshow" > Wheel (lower left) > Location
See screenshot attached.
