Microsoft Edge will now default to ultra-high security mode on websites that are less popular as the tech company is now set to roll out a new feature for more improved security on the platform.
Microsoft Edge Will Now Default To Ultra-High Security Mode on Websites That Are Less Popular
Users of Microsoft Edge will soon get an additional layer of security when they are browsing through less popular pages on the web. The new feature is set to implement ‘more conservative’ security settings for its users whenever they are surfing through unfamiliar websites and pages.
The new feature is dubbed ‘Enhanced Security Mode’ and it is set to roll out in edge version 104.0.1293.47.
How Does the New Mode Work?
This very feature will make it hard for a malicious website to make use of an unpatched vulnerability in writing to execute memory and attack end users as per Microsoft.
Users can now activate the new feature simply by opening Microsoft Edge and then heading to the settings and more section and then clicking on the settings option. You should now follow this up with privacy, search, and services. Users also will need to select from the following toggle settings available with each of them offering different levels of security such as basic, balanced and strict (applies for the protections to all websites that you visit).
Other Features Microsoft Is Introducing
This is not the only new feature that the company is rolling out for its flagship web browser. It is reported that the new edition of Microsoft will include a new disk caching feature and the company says that it will give users a boost in performance upgrade by applying compression to disc caching. With all the new feature Microsoft is introducing to the edge browser, they all must be doing something in a bid to win customers over.
