Microsoft Edge is introducing new price tracking, leaked password features

Microsoft is all set to introduce a new price tracker feature in its Edge browser, apart from another feature that will allow users to easily change their password in case it gets leaked online. The price-tracking feature will be available soon and is said to be designed to track products that users have viewed recently, and alert them about price changes.

Microsoft says it is working on improving the shopping experience with its Edge browser and already allows users to access price comparisons, price history and built-in coupons.

“This feature is coming soon and will be built into the browser, so you need to browse as you normally would, and Microsoft Edge will let you know if any of the items you’ve recently viewed have changed in price, Commenting on the feature, Ben-Zur, a Microsoft executive working on the Liat company’s “Modern Life” initiative, said.

As of yet, we don’t know how the company plans to handle privacy concerns related to browser tracking items users are searching for online and their prices. Microsoft is known for providing a variety of privacy-focused controls in Edge.

Additionally, Microsoft Edge is introducing a new password tool that will make it easier for users to update their passwords in case their passwords are leaked online. Edge already monitors leaked passwords provided users allow it to do so, and soon they’ll be able to navigate directly to the website’s Change Password page for the affected credentials. Microsoft Edge will create a new and strong password this way.
