Microsoft Edge: why import data from other browsers?

Microsoft Edge is Redmond's new browser. It is based on Chromium, ie it uses the same engine that powers Google Chrome, and is available on Windows and macOS.

The new Edge has become the new default browser of Windows 10, replacing the old version of the application.

But as we recently mentioned, some users have noticed that the automatic update, which is available through Windows Update, sometimes imports data from other browsers without the consent of the end user.

In other words, once Edge is installed on the device, it automatically starts importing data from other browsers after the first reboot.

Some users have even found that even if they force close the browser from the Admin , Edge still imports data from other browsers, such as Google Chrome and . Edge automatically imports it in the background as well , passwords and more.

Of course the company was accused by too many, and so today finally made a statement:

“During the first experience, the customer has the opportunity to maintain or reject the data entry. This data is discarded if it chooses not to enter. If a client terminates the new Microsoft Edge browser prematurely during the first run (eg using Task Manager), the remaining data may not be completely deleted. We advise customers not to end the installation process early to ensure an expected result ".

So technically, you should be able to the remaining data manually if you don't agree with Edge importing it your browser from Chrome or Firefox.

So as you understand the responsibility is the customer and not the company. Microsoft is "oil" again. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
