Microsoft Edge Secure Network VPN Service Cloudflare Spotted in Support Post
Microsoft appears to be testing an extra layer of security for the Edge browser called Edge Secure Network. This layer includes a built-in VPN powered by Cloudflare. New security and privacy features have been added to the service.
They were recently found on Microsoft’s website. With a detailed explanation of the Microsoft Edge Secure Network feature, the support page also talks about how it can be used to be even safer. As of now, there isn’t any way to know when the feature will be added to the game.
There isn’t yet a Microsoft Edge Secure Network VPN service that users can use. If you sign up for a Microsoft account, you’ll get 1GB of free data each month. XDA Developers first reported this. For a month, one can turn on the shield icon.
It also shows when the data will be automatically renewed so that you can keep it. The company hasn’t given any information about how much it costs to use more than 1GB of data.
However, it looks like Cloudflare’s 220.127.116.11 service is similar to this one. This is from the support post. Microsoft has also shown us how the Microsoft Edge Secure Network will work to keep your information safe.
Limited diagnostic and support data is used by the proxy. This data is automatically deleted every 25 hours. People can’t see important information even if they’re on a public Wi-Fi network.
In this post, you can learn how to use the Edge Secure Network feature even though it hasn’t been released yet. One has to sign in to their Microsoft account, then go to Settings and More > Turn on Microsoft Edge Secure Network to turn on the feature so that it can work. To ensure your browsing experience is safe, you can look at the shield icon in the browser frame. However, if you close Microsoft Edge, the feature will be turned off. The user needs to turn it back on when they start to browse again.
When you use a Microsoft account to sign in to Microsoft Edge, your data will be automatically backed up. This includes your browsing history, favorites, settings, data used to fill out forms, passwords, extensions, and other things that you can use. However, one can also turn the sync on and off for each type of data.
