Microsoft is testing built-in VPN service for Edge

Today it is possible to do most things directly in the browser and the companies that fight for the users’ favor are many. Microsoft puts a lot of focus on Edge, by testing and backing away from complicated settings of standard browsers in Windows 11. The company also tries to convince users by adding more features.

It now appears that a built-in VPN service is something that Microsoft is testing in Edge, a function that curious users can activate in the future. The software giant calls the function “Secure Network” and explains that it is a mode that encrypts the connection, prevents tracking and keeps the location information private. Microsoft does not use the term VPN (Virtual Private Network) in its description, but there is no doubt that it is such a service that is meant.

Unlike most VPN services, the Edge embedded variant should be free, at least for those who can manage 1 GB of data per month. Consumed data can be viewed directly in the browser, but Microsoft does not write what happens if the limit is exceeded or if it is possible to pay for more. However, it is clear that Cloudflare is the company responsible for the service that they delete “diagnostic and support data” after 25 hours.

Microsoft describes that a Microsoft account and the Edge browser are all that is needed to take advantage of the Secure Network feature. On the company’s website there are further instructions on how to activate it. The future will show if and when the built-in VPN service finds its way into Edge in the future, how well it works and if paid versions will be added.
