Microsoft Edge browser (Preview) now ready for download on the Play Store

The Edge for Android and iOS come with Hub View, Reading View, QR-code reader, voice search and more.

The Dutch DPA investigated Windows 10 Home and Pro and found that Microsoft still doesn't properly inform users about the type of data it collects, nor for what objective. Other things like favourites, reading lists, and bookmarks are also synced across devices. They are not informed which data are being used for what objective, neither that based on these data, personalized advertisements and recommendations can be presented, if those users have not opted out from these default settings on installation or afterward. Another handy feature that the Edge browser offers is a built-in QR Code Reader. However, the Continue on PC feature needs Windows 10 Fall Creators update to work which is still in beta.

In the Netherlands over 4 million active devices use Windows 10 Home and Pro.

According to the Dutch data protection authority, Windows 10 is in violation of local privacy laws concerning the use of automated data collection. At full telemetry, detailed data on the app usage is processed along with the info gathered from web surfing via Edge. Due to Microsoft's approach users lack control of their data. The first is to help Microsoft fix Windows for devices on which it experiences errors, and the second is for Microsoft to serve personalized ads to Windows 10 users. Most of the people only use it to install another browser like Chrome or Firefox. The key feature that is anticipated in the new app is its "Continue on PC" option that will enable users to send web pages to a PC, restore earlier pages and also resume from the last page.

As operating systems and browsers become more and more secure malicious actors are finding it increasingly more worthwhile targeting the unchanging weak link in the chain, the user, using techniques such as phishing and spear phishing to trick users into willingly giving up their important data and credentials.

The Dutch DPA exemplified the fact that Microsoft collects data about which news articles users read in the Edge browser, without making them aware that this data is being collected. Facebook used to do something similar by making users' posts more public nearly every time it updated its privacy policy. The preview will take about 56MB of your phone space; but could take much more than that when the full version is finally out probably soon. With that, the company is now moving on to platforms like Android and iOS.
