You can choose the option that best suits your desired balance of personalization and privacy. For more information about tracking prevention, see Learn about tracking prevention in Microsoft Edge.

InPrivate browsing

Microsoft Edge offers InPrivate browsing, which allows you to hide your browsing history, site and form data, cookies, and passwords from other people who use the same device. InPrivate browsing includes InPrivate search with Microsoft Bing, so any searches on Bing won't be associated with you or influence your Bing search suggestions. For more information about InPrivate browsing, see Browse InPrivate in Microsoft Edge.

Microsoft Edge features built-in learning and accessibility tools that enhance your browsing experience, making it easier to find the information you need and connect to it in the way that suits you best.

Microsoft Edge integrates Immersive Reader for some websites, so you can hear web content read to you or view articles without distracting ads.

You can use Collections to organize content on the web around specific themes. Collections is useful whether you're organizing your research, planning a trip, doing comparison shopping, of just want to pick up your browsing later. For more information about using Collections, see Organize your ideas with Collections in Microsoft Edge.
