At Build 2019, Microsoft announced the new Tracking Protection features for Microsoft Edge. The new features allowed users to take control of what gets shared with the websites and to allow users to block websites from tracking them online. The company noted that the Tracking Protection feature will be rolling out later to Chromium-based Edge users.
Following up on that, Microsoft enabled the new Tracking Protection flags on both Edge Canary and Dev channels. Now the company is officially rolling out the feature for Edge users. The feature will be available under Privacy and services in Edge settings. The feature has three levels: Basic, Balanced and Strict to choose from and Balanced is selected by default.
The feature is now enabled by default but if for some reasons you don’t see it then you can enable it by going to “edge://flags#edge-tracking-prevention” and clicking on Enable. Once done, restart the browser and you will see the new Tracking Protection settings inside Microsoft Edge.
