Learn about Microsoft Edge privacy and Microsoft Edge security in this free lesson.
Edge takes great care to keep your personal information private. It offers many ways to control your privacy, including modifying your privacy settings, deleting your history, and browsing in a private window.
Edge allows you to control some of the information you share online, which you can modify in your privacy settings. We recommend not changing Edge's default selections, as they allow for the best balance of privacy and security while browsing. However, you can modify them if you want.
Like all browsers, Edge keeps a record of every website you visit in your browsing history. You may want to remove some or all of your browsing history for the sake of privacy.
Edge makes it easy to delete some or all of your history. For example, sometimes you might want to remove only your history from the past hour instead of removing your entire history. You might also want to remove all of your saved pages and cookies but keep your saved passwords.
