The Microsoft Edge browser will warn users about the "leaked" passwords

The browser will constantly check the information with databases of information about declassified usernames and passwords. Continuous monitoring of passwords will allow users to receive information in case of detection of activity from cyber-scammers. Following this, device owners will receive tips that allow them to change sensitive data in order to maintain a high level of security. Passwords in this case must be synchronized with the Microsoft account.

The new release of Microsoft Edge 88, based on Chromium 88, will feature vertical navigation between open tabs and enhanced functionality for working with PDF files.

In addition, Microsoft is working on improving the anti-spam mechanism. The protection present in Chromium, according to Microsoft employee Eric Lawrence, may not work correctly and block access to some URLs. Therefore, the company hopes to improve this mechanism.
