I don’t want my browsing history to be sent to Microsoft. Can I turn this off?
There are a couple of ways in which your browsing data may be sent to Microsoft. Here’s what they are and how to change those settings:
• Only applicable to Microsoft Edge on Windows 10: if you’re using Cortana with Microsoft Edge, your browsing history will be sent to Microsoft to help Cortana personalise your experience. If you don’t want your browsing history sent to Microsoft for personalisation you can turn off the Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge setting. Go to More > Settings, and under Advanced settings, select View advanced Settings, then, under Privacy and services, turn the Have Cortana assist me in Microsoft Edge setting off.
• If the Use page prediction setting is on, it sends your browsing history to Microsoft, uses aggregated browsing history data to predict which pages you’re likely to browse to next, then loads those pages in the background for a faster browsing experience. To change this setting, go to More > Settings, and under Advanced settings, select View advanced Settings, then, under Privacy and services, turn the Use page prediction to speed up browsing, improve reading and make my overall experience better setting on or off.
