Details:

Microsoft Edge will introduce changes starting no earlier than February 20, 2024, to comply with the Digital Markets Act in the European Economic Area. End users in the EEA will have the option to uninstall the Microsoft Edge browser, and Microsoft Edge will no longer rely on the Windows diagnostic group policies. Organizations need to review diagnostic data being collected and set the Microsoft Edge group policy, DiagnosticData, by February 20, 2024, to avoid end users seeing a consent to data collection dialog.
Note: If your organization does not have users in European Economic Area, you can safely disregard this message.
To prepare for the Digital Markets Act, Microsoft Edge will roll out changes starting no earlier than February 20, 2024, that will go into effect in the European Economic Area (EEA). This will allow end users in the EEA the option to uninstall the Microsoft Edge browser. In addition, Microsoft Edge will no longer rely on the Windows diagnostic group policies in the areas affected by the Digital Markets Act. It will instead use the Microsoft Edge group policy, DiagnosticData, for diagnostic data collection. Edge version 122 will also introduce a new policy, UrlDiagnosticDataEnabled, to enable more control over optional data collection. This policy provides the ability for your organization to send optional diagnostic data to help with critical product improvements and stability but avoid sharing URLs of pages visited and per-page usage.
[When will this happen?]
No earlier than February 20, 2024 – changes roll out to Microsoft Edge for Business
March 6, 2024 - Digital Markets Act goes into effect in the EEA
March 6, 2024 – PCs in the EEA running Windows 10, version 22H2 and Windows 11, version 23H2 will be compliant with the Digital Markets Act
