Microsoft Edge Secure Network is free and built in partnership with Cloudflare. In testing since early last year as part of the Microsoft Edge Insider program, Microsoft’s in-browser VPN has started to be made available to all users with the latest version. Dubbed Microsoft Edge Secure Network, the browser VPN is free and developed in partnership with Cloudflare.
A VPN or Virtual Private Network basically offers a secure and encrypted connection to users. Such a service can be used to access web services that are normally blocked based on your geographic location. In certain regions, for example, users use VPNs to access sites blocked by internet providers.
Microsoft Edge VPN has a data limit
The initial test version of Microsoft Edge Secure Network was limited to just 1 GB of data per month, but apparently, Microsoft is planning to increase this limit to 15 GB of data per month. It is worth remembering that to use the VPN it is necessary to be logged into the browser with a Microsoft Account.
Users can check if the novelty is already available in the browser by accessing the settings and clicking on the “ Privacy, search and Services” category. Locate Microsoft Edge Secure Network as shown in the image below and move the slider to the “ Enabled ” position:
By clicking the “ Manage Secure Network Sites ” option, users can define which sites VPN will be automatically enabled and which sites it will never be enabled for:
In the web browser users will be able to enable the VPN from the icon on the toolbar. If necessary, check the “ Always use VPN for this website ” option so that it will be enabled whenever this specific website is accessed:
If you have already installed the latest version of Microsoft Edge and the VPN still does not appear as available, you may need to wait a few days for the feature to appear in your browser settings.
