How to View Site Information and Settings in Edge Android

The Microsft Edge for Android has a built-in security feature that allows you to check the site’s authenticity and security information. We can verify if the connection between the browser is secured. It also offers the option, Site Settings, that helps in configuring the access and permissions to various browser services to sites.

If you’re making any online transactions, the site information will help us understand if the connection between our browser and the server is secured. Since we will enter the card details, and other personal information, it’s always good to verify if we have secured connections.

The site information has security certification, validating and authorizing the connection to be secured. If the connection is not secured, we should not do any transactions or send our information.

Similarly, there is also an option to view the site settings for the specific website. You can modify the settings to grant or revoke website permissions for services like sound, notification, camera, microphone, etc. This will help in improving the privacy and security of the browser.

View Site Information

As I mentioned, the site information tab displays all the technical and certification information about the website. You can view whether the connection is secured, the data transfer is encrypted, and there are no unauthenticated scripts that lead to hacking. It is all available on Microsoft Edge for Android.

Here are the steps to view the site information of any website:

  1. Launch Microsoft Edge for Android.
  2. Open any website that you want to verify.
  3. Tap on the Padlock padlock icon in the URL bar.
    You will be able to see if the connection is secure or not.
  4. Tap on the Detail link to view the security certificate information.

If everything looks good, the connection is secured, and you can perform the transaction without any issues.

View Site Settings

The site settings information details site permissions and access to our Android phone. Most sites do not require any special permissions like camera or microphone access. However, keeping track of all the permissions currently enabled for the websites is good. It will help us secure our privacy on Microsoft Edge for Android.

Here are the steps to view the site settings:

  1. Launch the Microsoft Edge app for Android.
  2. Open any website that you want to verify.
  3. Tap on the Padlock padlock icon in the URL bar.
  4. Select the Site Settings link to open the settings page.

As mentioned, the site settings will help to understand the permissions. And most of the websites only need access to play sounds.

If any sites require permission to access the camera or storage, I strongly suggest blocking those sites and deleting all the information by hitting the reset button. This option is readily available on Microsoft Edge for Android.
