The ‘Edge Secure Network’ function of Microsoft’s Edge browser has just been improved, offering 5GB of data instead of the previous 1GB, a huge increase.
Your internet connection is encrypted by The Edge Secure Network using Cloudflare’s routing service, and your data is protected from online risks like hacking attempts.
Users must check in with their Microsoft account in order to access the Edge Secure Network, which is necessary to keep track of the Secure Network’s monthly data use. The free 5GB service and the calculation of when the data allotment has been reached depend on this tracking.
Importantly, Microsoft makes sure that during a Secure Network connection, the service provider (Cloudflare) does not have access to the user’s Microsoft account identification.
Sync will also be triggered when logging into Microsoft Edge using a Microsoft account, making browsing history available on all Microsoft Edge versions that are logged in. This sync includes collections, passwords, open tabs, extensions, form fill data, favorites, and browser history.
Since it has been under development for about a year, the Edge Secure Network is now expanding to more users in the Edge stable version.
Your communication is sent through an encrypted tunnel to establish a secure connection. As a consequence, every URL is viewed securely, even those supplied via an unsecured HTTP connection, making it more difficult for attackers to steal your browsing information.
Edge’s Secure Network offers the ability to access ISP-blocked torrent sites, but it cannot completely replace VPN features like choosing your favorite location or unblocking material on streaming services like Netflix.
