How to remove the annoying blue links for numbers automatically created on Edge
A couple weeks ago, I was doing some testing of a client's site using the Microsoft Edge browser. My go to browser is Chrome, but for some reason I needed to be on Edge. All of the sudden, I noticed that a phone number on the top of the page had turned an ugly blue that did not fit the design of the site as well.
At first, I thought that somehow the CSS had been edited, and frantically went into the code to make sure everything was fine. When I found out that everything was as it should have been, I looked on some other browsers to see if the problem persisted.
It didn't. I found out that the blue links only appeared when I was visiting the site from Microsoft Edge. Then I went to a couple other sites I manage and found out that the links were showing blue on those as well.
That was when I realized that the problem must be an issue with Edge, and not my code, so I started searching for a solution.
Quickly I found a Stack overflow question answered with the code I needed.
So how do you remove the blue phone link?
To quickly remove the link from your website, simply add this code to the header of all of your web pages: <meta name="format-detection" content="telephone=no">
That is it! Microsoft explains in their docs how to remove this style as well, but maybe this will help you get your answer faster.
