Microsoft Edge browser preview makes its way to Android

Microsoft Launcher for Android is now rolling out to all users

The Dutch DPA alleges that Microsoft is doing a poor job of informing customers of the type of data that it collects, and how their personal data is used by the company.

"We welcome the opportunity to continue to work with the Dutch DPA on their comments related to Windows 10 Home and Pro, and we will continue to cooperate with the DPA to find appropriate solutions", the Windows maker said in a blog post. Before Windows 10, the default browser of Windows was Internet Explorer, Microsoft killed it when it launched Windows 10 but could not do well with Edge as well. Microsoft does not clearly inform users about the type of data it uses, and for which goal.

To the very right of the voice control icon on the main interface is the one for scanning QR codes and barcodes which is a feature that's often seen as an extra capability of various apps though usually isn't prominently featured in browsers.

According to the Dutch DPA, the goal of telemetry is two-fold.

Hulu For Android TV gets Google Assistant integration via update
When you step out to the apps menu, by swiping up and down, you can notice a change in animation which seems to be inspired by iOS.

So you can head over to the Google Play Store and grab the app to get started. Once you receive the Windows 10 Fall Creator's Update, you will be able to pick up where left off by seamlessly moving content between your Android (or iOS) device and PC.

I want our customers to know that it is a priority for us that Windows 10 Home and Windows 10 Pro are clearly compliant under Dutch law.

The Dutch DPA mentioned that Microsoft doesn't inform users when it continuously collects personal data about the usage of apps and web surfing behavior in the Edge browser, when the default settings are used. The DPA has not yet responded to Microsoft's rebuttal, meaning there is definitely more time for this latest saga to develop. The first is to help Microsoft fix Windows for devices on which it experiences errors, and the second is for Microsoft to serve personalized ads to Windows 10 users. Apple iOS users have to register to test this Microsoft Edge browser and once they are approved, they just need to download the app and use it.

As operating systems and browsers become more and more secure malicious actors are finding it increasingly more worthwhile targeting the unchanging weak link in the chain, the user, using techniques such as phishing and spear phishing to trick users into willingly giving up their important data and credentials. As a matter of fact, launching the iOS and Android versions of the browser is no assurance that it will dominate and push others aside; a lot still has to be done.
