  • Microsoft wants to integrate the VPN service into the Edge browser in the future.
  • This should allow you to browse anonymously for free.
  • A partner for “Microsoft Secure Network” has already been found.

Despite many improvements, Microsoft Edge browser continues to lead a dismal existence. For many users, like its predecessor, the browser is for downloading from Chrome or Firefox. But that could change with a new security feature.

Like XDA Developers According to reports, Redmond is currently testing a VPN functionality that you can use to browse anonymously. The feature will be built into the Edge browser and can be activated as needed via a menu next to the search line.

Anonymity via Cloudflare

Simply put, a Virtual Private Network (VPN) hides your tracks on the internet by routing your internet traffic through different servers. There are many service providers that provide this service. In addition to some free providers, there are many other fee providers.

In the case of the Microsoft Secure Network, as the Redmond company calls its feature, use should be free. Up to 1 GB of data transfer is available to you per month for free. Basically, a Microsoft account is required for this. Microsoft doesn’t offer its own VPN, but it has brought Cloudflare on board as a partner.

Free alternative for beginners

Strictly speaking, Cloudflare is not an anonymity service like NordVPN or Surfshark. The company offers web hosting. Therefore, you will probably have to dispense with some features like geo-location obfuscation and IP anonymization to circumvent the default country borders.

The function is currently in a very early stage of development. The feature hasn’t even appeared on the Insider developer channel yet. So it is possible that we will get more details about the new safety net in the near future.
