Microsoft free built-in VPN in Edge browser

Microsoft is developing an integrated VPN for its Edge browser. The tech giant said a Cloudflare-backed VPN called Edge Secure Network is currently in testing and plans to roll it out to the public as a security upgrade in the future.

Edge Secure Network promises to encrypt users’ web traffic and prevent internet service providers from collecting browsing information.

Users can also hide their location and browse virtual IP addresses. This means that users can access websites and services blocked in their country.
“Online businesses may use your location and IP address to analyze and send targeted advertisements. The Microsoft Edge Secure Network allows you to browse using a virtual IP address that masks your IP. It replaces your geographic location with similar regional addresses, making it harder for online trackers to track you as you browse,” Microsoft said in its blog, Side.

However, the tech giant has limited VPN usage to 1GB. Users should also log in to their Microsoft account to enable Cloudflare and collect diagnostic information. Microsoft says data is permanently deleted every 25 hours.
A trial version is available by clicking on settings in secure network etc.

Since both Chrome and Mozilla offer paid VPN extensions, the free Edge Secure Network gives Microsoft a competitive edge over its competitors.
