Microsoft Edge is already flagging Twitter X as a scam app

July 31, 2023
It seems that Microsoft Edge is flagging Twitter X as a scam app, and it suggests you should uninstall the app.
If this web app is trying to trick you into thinking it’s a different app, uninstall it.
This Twitter user first spotted the pop-up, and it seems Microsoft Edge was apparently triggered by its Progressive Web App (PWA) Icon Change feature, which is a feature that lets Edge message you when an app is changing its name or icon, as this could be interpreted as a scam. The situation itself is a bit ironic, given the X trademark for several products belongs to Microsoft, and could be seen as intentional up to a point. However, it’s just an Edge feature, and you actually have the option to continue or uninstall. Twitter rebranding also came as a shock, and it happens so quickly that both users and other companies don’t know why it happens. For example, Elon Musk and his team have changed a lot of elements that were unique to Twitter, including the trademark tweets. They are no longer called tweets, but posts now. So this is really a brand new era for Twitter. What do you think about it? Let us know in the comments section below.
