Earlier this month, Microsoft silently introduced what it calls “Windows Tips notifications” in Windows 10 in order to highlight some of the features of the OS, and now it looks like these messages are touting the security level of Edge browser.
We first reported about these tips in early November when users started seeing what they described as “ads on the desktop,” with a Microsoft spokesperson telling us that they were actually notifications supposed to help users discover the benefits of Windows 10.

And now according to posts on Reddit, these notifications show that Edge is actually more secure than Google Chrome and Mozilla Firefox, and pop out whenever users launch the third-party browsers.

Is this fair play from Microsoft? Hard to tell, but the company is also giving users an option to block these tips should they feel bothered by them. All they have to do is go to Settings > System > Notifications and disable the option that’s called “Get tips, tricks, and suggestions as you use Windows.”
