Microsoft Edge started getting a free integrated VPN

Microsoft Edge

Microsoft is strengthening its web browser’s security measures. The Redmond company has in fact started deploying its VPN in Edge’s stable version. The secure network functionality of Microsoft Edge, which was formally introduced a little over a year ago and tested in Edge Canary, would therefore be completed. You may use it to encrypt your web browsing and protect your data from any attacks online. While using public and/or unsafe Wi-Fi networks, the function should be very helpful. The VPN is not yet available in the stable version for everyone but it will soon be.

This VPN’s official supplier is not Microsoft. The US company uses Cloudflare technology to embed this service into its web browser. Three degrees of security are offered by the feature, which may be customized from the Settings > Privacy menu.

If you choose the first option, only websites on your own predetermined list will have the VPN automatically active. Microsoft states in the settings that the optimized mode “automatically protects your traffic while using public Wi-Fi, insecure networks, or accessing a site without a valid certificate (HTTP)”. The company suggests adopting this option by default as well.

Lastly, the VPN may be in use for all browser traffic, including streaming audio and video material, when the third and final security level, All Sites, is enabled. A degree of protection that should only be in use in the direst circumstances. Since else you run the danger of using up your whole data quickly.

Due to the fact that the Microsoft VPN is only available for free use within these three tiers of protection. Microsoft by default provides one gigabyte of bandwidth each month. To get this free data each month in the browser, you must link your Microsoft account to Edge. By clicking on the corresponding symbol, which looks like a shield and is located at the upper right of the browser window, you can see how much data is left in your VPN choice.

Microsoft won’t likely release the costs of its offer until after a few more days have passed for people who want to use this protection beyond the free data cap.

Microsoft tries to revolutionize its Edge browser

Microsoft Edge

The company has revealed a significant update to its Edge web browser that will have a completely new user experience inspired by the design language of Windows 11 as well as ground-breaking new AI capabilities powered by OpenAI’s ChatGPT technology. The Edge Sidebar contains the latest AI capabilities, which are always available.

Microsoft revealed the new Edge at its special AI event, and the firm claims a “limited preview” will start trickling out to some users right away. The new Microsoft Bing, which similarly uses ChatGPT technology and uses natural language for online searches and other tasks, is closely related to the new Edge.

The new Edge is amazing since it can analyze the webpage you’re watching and actively assist you in creating reports. Conducting research, and compiling data using the sidebar. Microsoft has the following to say about the new AI features in Edge:

“You may use the Edge Sidebar to request a summary of a lengthy financial report to extract the main points, and then use the chat feature to request a comparison to the financials of a rival firm, which will instantly create a table. Edge may also assist you with content creation. Such as a LinkedIn post, if you provide it with a few starter cues”.

The AI sidebar allows users to create messages, emails, and social media postings based on their own criteria. For instance, you might use it to have the browser write a joyful message about receiving a promotion for LinkedIn or Twitter.

You must be using Microsoft Edge Dev in order to access the restricted preview. Even then, you might not immediately see these new features because the preview isn’t that extensive.
