Enable the User-Agent Client Hints feature (deprecated)

DEPRECATED: This policy is deprecated. It is currently supported but will become obsolete in a future release.

This policy is deprecated because it's only intended to be a short-term mechanism to give enterprises more time to update their web content if and when it's found to be incompatible with the User-Agent Client Hints feature. It won't work in Microsoft Edge version 89.

When enabled the User-Agent Client Hints feature sends granular request headers that provide information about the user browser (for example, the browser version) and environment (for example, the system architecture).

This is an additive feature, but the new headers may break some websites that restrict the characters that requests may contain.

If you enable or don't configure this policy, the User-Agent Client Hints feature is enabled. If you disable this policy, this feature is unavailable.

Supported on: Microsoft Edge version 86, Windows 7 or later
