Microsoft Edge sets Yandex as default search engine in Moldova

Nicu Soare 5 Reputation points

Hi, when the Region of my computer is set to Moldova, Edge sets the Russian search engine Yandex as the default search engine. I understand that Microsoft have signed a deal in 2015 to do the same with Ukraine.

Can you please stop doing this? Doing this sends users data to Russia which violates your promise about privacy.

I'll try and reach as many media organizations as possible to bring the attention to Microsoft about this incredible issue.

My previous message on this forum was deleted without a clear reason. Is this board censored?
