We all love privacy especially when it comes to web surfing. There are specific websites we want to hide from everyone like banking websites, and just deleting history does not give us that secrecy. So to improve that the “InPrivate” mode was added to the Edge browser. This doesn’t record your download history nor your browsing history. However, recently researcher Ashish Singh detected a flaw in the InPrivate mode of Edge – he found that it was possible to see websites accessed while the InPrivate mode was active by examining the WebCache file. Unfortunately, this means that the feature isn’t as private as you’d like to think. After closing the seemingly private instance, someone could access the Container_n table, which contains various items of data like websites visited, cookie details and more.
Microsoft has already confirmed that they are looking into Singh’s report. Anyone with deep computer knowledge can easily know what you are browsing, So beware.
