How to Enable or Disable Do Not Track on Edge

Here you’ll see the steps to turn on or off Do Not Track (DNT) on Microsoft Edge. In this instance, I’m using Android and PC. Let’s get started.

PC

Open the Microsoft Edge browser.

Hit the three horizontal dots at the top.

Click on “Settings.”

Click “Privacy, search, and services” on the left sidebar.

In the Privacy section, you will see “Send “Do Not Track” requests.”

Aside from that, you can see the switch.

Enable (to turn on) or disable (to turn off) the switch.

Once activated, you will see a pop-up. Hit “Send request.”

That’s it.

Here are the alternate methods:

Method #1

To disable:

Launch local group policy editor.

Navigate to the Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge.

Then double-click “Configure Do Not Track” in the right pane.

Select Disabled.

Hit the OK button.

That’s all.

Note: To enable it, follow the steps above but select Enabled. For default, select Not Configured.

Method #2

To disable:

Open Registry Editor. I suggest a Registry backup before proceeding.

Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE > SOFTWARE > Policies > Microsoft > Edge.

Right-click on the blank space in the right pane.

Select New > DWORD (32-bit) Value.

Type ConfigureDoNotTrack and then hit the Enter key.

That’s it.

Note: To enable it, provide 1 in the Value data field of the DWORD. For default, delete the DWORD you created earlier.

Android

Open the Edge app.

Press the button with the three horizontal points below.

Tap “Settings.”

Hit “Privacy and Security.”

Tap “Do Not Track”.

Enable (to turn on) or disable (to turn off) the switch.
