Microsoft added a feature to its Edge browser that allows users to follow content creators.
The feature appears to be malfunctioning, and the latest Edge update has the feature on by default.
Now Edge is sending the URLs from every website you visit to Bing API servers.

Just as Microsoft Edge was starting to attract new users with its Bing AI integration, it may lose some of its momentum. The reason why is that the browser is experiencing an issue that’s affecting the privacy of its users.

The Microsoft Edge browser appears to be sending the full URLs of every website you visit to Bing API servers, according to The Verge. Redditors first discovered the problem last week. It seems the issue stems from a feature that allows users to follow content creators.
