Welcome to the HP Community.

Be Aware:

Do not respond to individuals who post phone numbers or email addresses.

Do not post any private information in our public Community.

These people might be scammers trying to steal your information / money.



That might be one of the more unusual things I've heard done to a browser.


Essentially, some browsers do dig into your account and save data there.



Uninstall the browser

Look in your AppData > Local > Microsoft

If you find the Edge folder, consider removing it.


Be Aware

Note the word "consider".

Assuming the folder is there, it would likely contain data related to your personal settings used in Edge.

Be aware that removing the folder would remove any data saved in that location.


What else?

Best Option...



Not a computer issue - this is Microsoft Edge browser problem.

Contact / check with Microsoft for help with their browser.


What else?

Use a different Browser until you figure out how to fix the issue with Edge.
