Microsoft has announced that the Secure Network VPN service will soon be available in Microsoft’s proprietary Edge browser. This announcement follows a first mention last month. As part of the Edge Insider Insider Program on the Canary channel, browser users have access to the service.
Secure Network Tool doesn’t require additional software or extensions. This feature allows Edge users to connect to a secure Internet connection while working on public networks. Privacy issues are often a problem. Secure Network will conceal your real IP address and encrypt traffic. Cloudflare was Microsoft’s partner for this project.
Secure Network cannot be used to bypass restrictions in your region by changing your IP address, as opposed to traditional VPN services. To ensure that public networks are safe, the service automatically selects servers from the user’s area. The Secure Network is currently free, although Microsoft may monetize it. During testing, users were given 1GB traffic to use with an activated VPN service. This is not enough to stream video or play online games.
