How to enable the new Crapware Blocker from Microsoft Edge



  The new Microsoft Edge logo on the light desktop background of Windows 10.

Microsoft Edge has a new crapware blocker, but it is not enabled by default. It is currently available in Edge beta, but should be available in early February for anyone using the Chromium-based Edge browser with the stable release of Edge 80.

"Potentially unwanted apps" are Crapware

This browser blocks "Potentially unwanted apps", which are also known as "potentially unwanted programs & # 39; s". PUP & # 39; s contain annoying features such as adware, trackers, browser toolbars, cryptocurrency miners, and other unwanted e-mail that you almost certainly do not want on your PC. PUPs are called "malware with a legal team". You give permission to install this unwanted e-mail when you click through the license agreement, so it is technically not malware.

Microsoft does not block crapware downloads in Microsoft Edge by default, so you need to know that it exists and go to Settings to find it. There is a fast switch that forces Edge to block this clutter. It works in the same way as the hidden option that causes Windows Defender to block crapware on your desktop.

Edge, Chrome, Firefox and other browsers may block potentially dangerous downloads, but this option ensures that Edge goes even further and blocks some junkware that normally allow.
