Microsoft Edge gets three features that will improve their browsing experience while safeguarding their information as they browse the Web. Microsoft Edge states in a Windows Experience Blog post that it was updating two Microsoft Edge features, Password Health Dashboard and Password Monitor, with the ability to quickly update compromised passwords.

Microsoft hasn’t specified if the feature will be turn on by default, but users might be able to disable the feature if they do not want to be track as they browse the Web.
