Microsoft rolls out a new feature for improved security
Soon, Microsoft Edge users will be able to surf the web more safely by adding an extra layer of security to their browsers. When browsing unfamiliar websites, the new feature will implement “more conservative” security settings. “Enhanced Security Mode” is the name given to the new feature, which will be available in Edge 104.0.1293.47.
A malicious site will have a more difficult time exploiting an unpatched vulnerability in order to write to executable memory and attack a user, Microsoft claims. Open Microsoft Edge and go to “Settings and more,” then click “Settings,” then “Privacy, search, and services” to enable the new feature. After that, users will have to choose between three different security settings: “Basic,” “Balanced,” and “Strict” (which applies the protections to all websites you visit).
In addition to this new feature, Microsoft is also releasing an updated version of its Internet Explorer browser. In the newest version of Microsoft Edge, the company promises a significant performance boost by compressing disk caching, which will be implemented in the latest version. All of these new features must be doing something to attract customers. Microsoft’s new flagship browser, which replaced Internet Explorer earlier this year, is now being used by almost one out of every ten Internet users.
