Trackers are used on websites to collect data about your browsing behavior. They collect data about how you interact with a site, and other interesting info about your browsing. Microsoft Edge is designed to detect and block trackers. We put you in control to decide what trackers to block.

When you use InPrivate tabs or windows, your browsing data (like your history, temporary internet files, and cookies) isn't saved on your device once you're done. We respect your decision to browse InPrivate and will not tie your data to your Microsoft account.

Microsoft Edge comes with Microsoft Defender SmartScreen built-in. We protect you against phishing or malware websites, and from downloading potentially malicious files. Microsoft Defender SmartScreen is turned on by default in Microsoft Edge.
