Change to Bing Search for ProPlus should be opt-in only
This is a bad idea as a default setting and should be opt-in only. As it is, we're going to be blocking this everywhere we can so that we don't get flooded with service requests asking us to change their search back.
We are working on deploying the new Edge for users who want to use Bing, but PLEASE don't touch Chrome.
Thank you very much for your feedback on this item. Microsoft reviewed the feedback on the proposed implementation of this feature, and have updated our design to address those concerns.

This is just so wrong Microsoft. Let it be an opt in feature. Do not modify people's search engine in a browser that you did not build.

“Trust takes years to build, seconds to break, and forever to repair.” In recent years Microsoft recovered from a bad reputation it once had. This act brings back bad memories. Please don't do this.

You're update is bad and you should feel bad

I could not believe this, but as of January 25, 2020 the above official Microsoft link is still reading the same! Glad to see 400 upvotes in a few days.

The.proposed change is underhanded and potentially illegal. Has Microsoft not learned anything from the court ruling that forced them to stop their IE enforcement on Windows?

This makes Office MALWARE... do not alter my computer without MY CONSENT.

I need clarity also on if this will affect users that have used one of their activation installing ProPlus on their home computers.
We *really* don't need complaints from staff because things have changed on their personal devices without their consent.
