Then, Microsoft has another trick to pull off to convince more people to adopt Edge. The tech giant is adding an unpaid VPN for the Edge web browser. It may bring more users to Edge. The feature is explained on the Support page of the firm.
The tech giant has named this feature ‘Microsoft’s Edge Secure Network’ that is currently in the test phase. The aim of the “Secure Network”? to encrypt your connection to shield your identity from hackers, protect your identity from tracking online and ensure your privacy as is expected of the VPN service. Microsoft has joined forces with Cloudflare to provide this VPN service.
You’ll get 1GB of data each month when log in with Microsoft Edge with their Microsoft accounts.
