UBlock Origin, Adblock Plus, Grammarly, Enhancer for YouTube, Reddit Enhancement Suite, Honey, Evernote Web Clipper, Momentum, F.B Purity.

Edge browser warns when extension makes such changes then you can disable or remove the extension and restore Edge default settings by visiting browser settings page.
Report Malware extensions to Microsoft:
Like Firefox and Google Chrome, if you feel any extension contains malware or violates Microsoft Add-ons Store content policies, you can use the “Report abuse” option available on the extension page (Edge also displays the reporting option with a checkbox while uninstalling an extension). You can report about Edge extension to Microsoft for threats, cyberbullying, harassment, offensive content, virus, spyware, malware and other.
Since the Chromium Edge browser is new and addons store is recent and there aren’t any user reviews available makes it difficult for the users to how trustworthy an extension is.
