    Malicious Software through infected websites on Xbox One?


    Hello,

    I wonder if you can get malicious software on Xbox One while browsing with Micrososft Edge? Sometimes I visit some websites that may be infected or unsecure. Probably like many people do.

    Yesterday I started Edge and while it synchronized the app data, I left the room. When I came back the Console showed the Xbox starting site, no profile signed in and no internet connection. I had to restart the Console to be able to sign in with my profile
    again.

    Maybe thats some kind of Malware or something? Or is it completely secure to surf on any website on Xbox One?

    (I apologize if my english isnt that good.)

    :)

    Hey Jericho

    As stated by XBF Javier R, it is unlikely that you will receive any malware by using the console to navigate the web, however, if you security
    encryption or configuration on your network is not up-to-par, you can still potentially lose personal data to certain sites, so it is still recommend to be careful when navigating such said sites.

    As there is no further information that we can provide to you on this matter, and in an effort to prevent any such repetitive answers, we will now be locking this thread.

    If you have any other questions or concerns, that vary from this matter, please, feel free to create a new thread and we will cater to you there.

    Thank you for being part of the Xbox Family and we wish you a wonderful day!

    Malicious Software through infected websites on Xbox One?

    I dont think it is possible as most websites are targeting PCs and i know of no virus or similiar for xboxes. Also the console is strictly separating the OS, Apps and Games into three secure segments that barely interact with eachother.
