Microsoft Edge sends form input to the cloud

Disable cloud-based spell checking


Since a previous update, the Edge Browser is sending input data in form fields to the cloud as part of the spell check. A permanent storage does not take place (according to Microsoft).

For security and data protection reasons, please deactivate the cloud-based spell checker if you use the Edge browser.

The corresponding settings can be found in Edge under “Settings (three dots in the top right) -> Languages -> Use writing support”. This can be switched to “Simple” or deactivated completely.
