Microsoft Edge's unique feature that sets it apart from other browsers is the "Continue on PC" function. On the Windows Home and Pro versions there's no way to completely turn-off the telemetry system. "It turns out that Microsoft's operating system follows about every step you take on your computer. That results in an intrusive profile of yourself", Tomesen said.
Although collection of data is a generally unpopular practice from a consumer standpoint, Microsoft does have valid uses and benefits from collecting extensive metadata.
In the company's testing of 36,120 different instances involving the access of 1,136 suspicious URLs over a 23-day period, the company found Edge to provide significantly more protection than its Google- and Mozilla-made alternatives. "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 afterwards".
According to the Dutch DPA, the objective of telemetry is two-fold.
Microsoft processes data from both levels of telemetry in order to fix errors, to keep devices up-to-date and secure and to improve its own products and services.
The DPA adds that the firm also makes it impossible for users to give their consent to their personal data being processed.
"Microsoft offers users an overview of the categories of data that it collects through basic telemetry, but only informs people in a general way, with examples, about the categories of personal data it collects through full telemetry", the Dutch DPA continues.
Microsoft Edge will also be used as the company's Kindle reader of sorts, with the app already having a dedicated section for Books which is presently empty and will contain your books purchased from the Microsoft Store in the future.
If you use the same Microsoft Account in the Microsoft Edge app on Android that you use with Windows 10 then you will be able to push content to those devices.
Replying to the concerns raised by the Dutch agency, Microsoft said it is working to comply with the Dutch data protection law.
