Here are some of the best Microsoft Edge features that improve your browsing experience without compromising your privacy on the web.

One of the key Microsoft Edge features is its focus on user privacy. Edge comes with an InPrivate mode that automatically deletes history, cookies and site data once the user is finished with a web browsing session. Additionally, Edge is the only desktop browser that offers built-in InPrivate search with Bing. InPrivate mode searches are not tied to the user’s account.

Another privacy-focused Microsoft Edge feature lets users prevent websites from tracking their online activities. The web browser comes with three tracking prevention options - Basic, Balanced, Strict. Depending on which setting you choose, Microsoft Edge will adjust the types of third-party trackers blocked.

Each year, millions of online personal credentials are exposed in data breaches and end up for sale on the dark web. To help users keep their accounts safe, Microsoft Edge comes with a new feature called Password Monitor. When enabled, Password Monitor notifies you if the credentials you have saved to autofill have been detected on the dark web. If Microsoft Edge uncovers a match with any of your saved username + passwords, you will receive a notification from within the browser prompting you to take action. Through a dashboard in Settings, users can view a list of all leaked credentials and get routed to their respective websites to change the password.
