How to Disable Camera and Microphone Access in Edge Computer?

Learn how to disable the camera and microphone access and permissions to the websites on the Microsoft Edge browser on any computer. You can disable these permissions so that the websites won't ask to allow or deny the access.

Each website needs certain permissions to execute the job they are meant to do. Like for example, Google voice search needs the permissions to a microphone for listening to the voice command. Similarly, a website that compares photos and displays related items needs permissions to the camera.

However, it doesn’t mean that all the websites need permissions. Hence, unless you use these features on any particular website, it’s strongly recommended to block them.

Microsoft Edge has the ability to block the permissions to microphone and camera access for the website.
