We’ve just posted the following news: Microsoft’s Edge browser keeps track of browsing history in InPrivate Mode[newsimage]http://www.myce.com/wp-content/images_posts/2016/01/ca123c0f-7ea5-460c-8701-86db539f9617-95x75.jpeg[/newsimage]

A security researcher found that URLs visited in Private mode on Windows 10’s default browser, Edge, can still be found as they are stored in a separate folder on the hard drive.

When running Microsoft Windows 10, this is really not any question to ask. Almost anything is recorded and shipped to Microsoft and without checking, surely there is a process responsible for shipping the private browser urls to them as well.

I have regained control, but the common man can only block parts of it and so most Microsoft wants slips through anyway. Use the hosts file in addition and you are still only safe until they make a change.

As should be evident, I have such a firm belief in Microsoft when they claim that it is nothing but a bug :disagree:

This “bug” seems to go against common sense. If people are using InPrivate mode, nothing should be stored locally, especially URLs. I guess at the end of the day, the NSA “needs” Microsoft to get them that information (to stop the “terrorists”), even though the NSA is already watching our browsing history in real time via their upstream program.
