Edge can soon automatically wipe browsing history and cookies when exiting the browser

Microsoft Edge users are soon able to automatically delete their browsing history, cookies and other browser data when they exit the browser. The new feature is introduced in a new Windows 10 Technical Preview build released to Insiders.


The new build, numbered 14267,  contains all kinds of new features including the possibility to wipe browser data when closing the browser. Users can also choose which data Edge deletes when the browser is closed. The feature isn’t particularly new, Firefox offers the feature for years already.

Other new features in this Windows 10 build are improvements in searching for music with Cortana, improvements in the favorites bar and download prompts in Edge and improvements in messaging and Skype.
