Most sites do not require any special permissions. However, we can keep track of all the permissions currently enabled. Here are the steps to view and configure the site permissions:

  1. Launch the Edge app for Android.
  2. Open any website that you want to verify.
  3. Tap on the Padlock padlock icon in the URL bar.

Suppose any untrustworthy sites request permission to access the camera, microphone, or storage. In that case, I strongly suggest blocking those sites’ requests and deleting their permissions by hitting the Clear & reset button.

Bottom Line

The Edge browser provides information about the site security we visit that helps validate its authenticity. The site permissions settings help adjust the site-specific settings like sound, camera, notification, etc., access, which can help protect our privacy.

You can also manage the cookies from the site information settings.

Similarly, you can view the site information and configure settings in Edge on the computer. It offers much more customization compared to a phone browser.
