Microsoft Edge detected traces of an integrated VPN (Virtual Private Network) dubbed "Secure Network" in April this year. The service will be powered by Cloudflare. A month later, the Redmond company announced its release, adding some further details.
Secure Network settings are now available in the latest Edge Canary build. They are available in the "Privacy, Search, and Services" menu in Settings.
Edge Secure Network has three options, one on the left, that allows you to choose which websites you want to use the VPN on. Using this feature, users may also add exceptions to those sites they never wish to use.
The recommended option is "Optimized," which will automatically turn VPN on when using public Wi-Fi. Finally, there is the option to use Secure Network on all websites. The 1GB of free VPN data cap per month is present in all the options.
Finally, as a result of the amount of data used up, the option to toggle VPN always-on for a particular website has been added.
