What's new in Edge 90

Kids Mode

This mode will make Edge more attractive to children, will ensure they are safe on the Internet and visit only approved websites. It is primarily focused on children between the age of 5-12 years.

 

Kid Child Banner

When enabled, Kids Mode will apply unique themes for children and turn on Bing SafeSearch. It will also block all the websites except those marked by Microsoft as "kids-friendly" or predefined by parents or caregivers. Kids Mode comes with a list of 70 kid-safe websites, but you can add or remove sites of your choice. Kids Mode is available from the profile selection menu, and you will be able to configure it using the Family settings in Microsoft Edge. There is a detailed blog post about this feature.

Password Monitor

The Password Monitor feature is intended to check if the passwords you use are weak or already compromised. It will check your passwords against a collection of compromised accounts. Microsoft Edge will inform you if it finds your credentials in the breach database, and will also help you change the password for sites where you use the same username and password pair. You can also manually scan for compromised passwords in Microsoft Edge.
