Edge, Microsoft’s recently mentioned browser, comes up with some privacy concerns. According to the transfer, the browser sends the images you view to Microsoft.
Microsoft Edge is full of features with many tools and options to make your browsing experience better and more convenient. Although Edge has recently come to the fore by integrating productive artificial intelligence into itself, now it comes to the fore with privacy concerns. According to what is stated, Edge sends the images you view to Microsoft.
Microsoft also sees the pictures you view in Edge
Not long ago, Microsoft Edge was in trouble after users discovered a bug that leaked your browser history to Bing. And now, you might want to turn off another feature to make sure Edge doesn’t send every picture you view online to Microsoft. Edge has a built-in image enhancement tool to “show clearer pictures with better color, lighting, and contrast settings,” according to Microsoft.
While this feature may sound exciting, recent Microsoft Edge Canary updates have revealed more about how image enhancement works. The browser now warns that it sends image links to Microsoft instead of making on-device enhancements. The biggest problem with Edge’s “super resolution” and other questionable services is that they come enabled by default. That’s why unaware users allow the browser to automatically process images and send them to Microsoft for enhancement. You can follow the steps below to fix this:
- Open Settings in Microsoft Edge
- Go to Settings > Privacy, Search & Services.
- Scroll down to the very bottom and turn off the “Enhance images in Microsoft Edge” option.
Microsoft is working to make this feature more flexible. Future Edge updates will allow you to choose a more balanced path and specify which websites Edge should not handle. Meanwhile, Microsoft Edge has another artificial intelligence-based feature called Video Super Resolution. However, this feature uses in-device processing powered by graphics cards instead of sending content to Microsoft.
