Enable do not Track in Microsoft Edge

You might not realize it, but you’re being frequently tracked online. Several websites, and the third-party content they host, track your browsing habits, such as the links you click, the pages you go to and the items you acquire.

You can try to opt out of this by telling websites that you don’t want to be monitored by setting your browser to send Do Not Track requests. By default, most browsers, including Microsoft’s new Edge browser, built into Windows 10, do not send such requests, meaning websites are free to collect information about you.

Websites are not obliged to recognize such requests, however having Do not Track switched on will at the very least let the outlets that do identify it know to stop tracking you. Right here’s how to turn on Do not Track in Edge.

  • Open Edge;
  • Tap the three-dot menu button on the top right of the screen as shown below and click Settings;

Edge_DNT_01

  • Scroll down and tap View advanced settings;

Edge_DNT_02

  • Tap the Send Do Not Track Requests toggle to turn it on.

Currently the internet sites you check out will know that you do not want to be monitored.

You can always revert the process if you change your mind by turn off the change you made above.
