Microsoft Edge Removes Button to Delete Cloud Data

Venkat (via Hacker News):

Starting version 114, Microsoft Edge, no longer offers “reset sync” button that deletes data from Microsoft Servers. The button has been replaced with “Re-sync now” option. So if you’re privacy conscious, beware, there is no way to remove your Edge browsing data from Microsoft’s cloud now.


While Reset deletes sync data from Microsoft servers and re-syncs local browsing data with cloud when you turn on sync. Now, Re-sync just combines Edge’s local browsing data with sync data stored on Microsoft Servers.

However, you can use the special edge://sync-internals URL to access a hidden button to Clear Server Data.
