SmartScreen disable on Windows Edge 10 1903

SmartScreen off; Η Microsoft προσπαθεί να βελτιώσει την ασφάλεια των 10 και κυκλοφορεί συνεχώς νέες λειτουργίες και ρυθμίσεις για το of system. Many of these are supposed to give users additional control over how Windows manages their data.

Recently, however, one security researcher discovered something that could worry many Windows 10 users.


O coming pre-installed on Windows 10 sends the full addresses web pages you visit at Microsoft, according to a security researcher.

The data sent by include not only the information on each page you visit, but also the SID, which means security ID, according to a Publication by researcher Matt Weeks at .

When SmartScreen is turned on, the URL you are trying to load into the browser is sent to Microsoft for analysis, and other information, such as the security ID or SID, is "gone" along with it.

In Windows, SID is a unique identifier associated with your account, so by sending it to Microsoft, the company could know exactly which user is visiting which page through Microsoft Edge.

What exactly does SmartScreen do?

The feature analyzes the links you open with Microsoft Edge and compares them to a list of sites that have been identified as dangerous by the company. If you try to load a dangerous page, your browser will show you a warning to warn you of the dangers you may be exposed to if you continue on the site.

The security feature sounds great, but on the other hand and SID, something you do not need to protect yourself.

How to turn off SmartScreen in Windows 10

Disabling SmartScreen in Windows 10 is simple.

In the Windows search box next to the Start menu, type Windows Security and press enter. Open the internal application.

Next, you must follow the path:

Windows Security - App & browser control - SmartScreen for Microsoft Edge

By default, the function is set to the Warn level, so you must turn it off:

When turned off, SmartScreen will not send information to Microsoft, so the URLs that contain your SID will not be parsed.

Δεν χρειάζεται να αναφέρουμε ότι η απενεργοποίηση ενός χαρακτηριστικού ασφαλείας δεν είναι η καλύτερη επιλογή, αλλά από την άλλη πλευρά, αν ανησυχείτε για το μπορείτε να χρησιμοποιήσετε αυτό το μικρό tweak μέχρι να μας εξηγήσει η Microsoft τι συμβαίνει.

Of course a different way is to change the browser. The Best Technology Site in Greecefgns
