The Microsoft Edge feature has the anti-trace feature to block third-party malware !!

Microsoft Edge adds a new feature to prevent online tracing by third-party Web sites. This new step comes just days after Mozilla added enhanced tracking protection to Firefox. Microsoft initially fetched the original trace block to the Edge preview structures. The latest extension is added to "protect you from tracking websites that you can not access directly" by providing tracking across three different levels. The Redmond giant showed the anti-tracking feature at the Build 2019 conference in Seattle last month.

Users of Microsoft Edge version 77.0.203.0 available through Canary can experience the anti-trace feature. Once you create the most recent preview, you'll be prompted to enable the feature manually by entering "edge: // flags # edge-tracking-prevention" in the address bar. You will then be asked to select Enabled from the drop-down menu and restart your browser.

The Edge Privacy Settings page gives you the ability to control the blocking level once the new experiment is enabled. By default, the feature is set at a balanced level that blocks known third-party traces and known traces. However, you can customize the trace trace feature by setting the feature to Strict, which is required to block most third-party tracking software, or choose the primary level of protection that only prevents malicious tracking programs.

"When blocking a tracker, we aim to prevent it from accessing pre-stored trace information and storing new tracking information." When tracking resources do not add meaningful functionality to the page, we may block it completely, "the Microsoft Edge team explained in a blog post.

Microsoft lists the number of blocked tracking devices on the page that can be viewed by clicking the Page Info button next to the URL in the address bar. You can also change the site-by-location blocking setting by clicking the Page Info button.

"We are currently experimenting with ways to provide greater privacy protection by looking for opportunities to expand the types of tracking devices we are blocking for you," the team said.

Specifically for enterprise customers, Microsoft experiences policy exposure. The company also plans to take into account your recent interactions with sites to add tracking prevention at a balanced level.

Microsoft first introduced its blocking feature in Build 2019 last month. "We realized that most users did not know they were being tracked," said Chuck Friedman, Microsoft's vice president at Microsoft Edge, during its Build presentation last month. "They have a sense of it and want to be able to explain it to them."

Microsoft provides trace prevention at the beginning on the Canary version of Microsoft Edge, version 77.0.203.0, which is limited to Windows systems. However, it has plans to provide a similar experience to macOS users through the next update to the Canary channel.

As mentioned earlier, Mozilla added the Enhanced Trace Protection feature to Firefox to offer a similar experience earlier this month. The feature was announced last year and enabled by default.
