1.106 Ensure 'Show Microsoft Rewards experiences' is set to 'Disabled'


This policy setting controls whether the Microsoft Reward experience is available to users and if notifications are received. The Microsoft Rewards experience is a free program that allows the user to earn points when searching on Bing.com. With these points, the users can buy merchandise from the Microsoft Store online and in Windows 10.

Note: The Bing Rewards experience was merged with the Microsoft Reward experience in 2016.

The recommended state for this setting is Disabled.


Due to privacy concerns, data should never be sent to or tracked by any 3rd party since this data could contain sensitive information.


The Microsoft Rewards experience will not show in the Microsoft Edge user profile.


To establish the recommended configuration via GP, set the following UI path to Disabled:

Computer Configuration\Policies\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Edge\Show Microsoft Rewards experiences

Note: This Group Policy path may not exist by default. It is provided by the Group Policy template MSEdge.admx/adml that can be downloaded from: Download Microsoft Edge for Business - Microsoft.

Default Value:

Enabled. (In the search and earn markets users will see the Microsoft Rewards experience in their Microsoft Edge user profile.)
