Microsoft Edge offers 1GB of free data per month with its integrated VPN

Microsoft has integrated a virtual private network (VPN) in your Edge browser, a novelty that will offer up to 1GB of free traffic per month and that will soon reach users of the established channel.

The integration of a VPN into Microsoft Edge began a year ago, under the name ‘Edge Secure Network’, and has been in testing on the Insider channel ever since, where some participants have been able to test this tool with up to 15GB of traffic per month. .

This novelty has begun to reach the stable channel, where some users have already been able to see it within the browser, in the Privacy settings. Its purpose is to protect the user’s browsing, especially when connected to a public, insecure WiFi or without a valid certificate such as HTTPS.

This novelty, once present in the browser, it offers three levels of security from which the user can choose, as is currently the case with Tracking Prevention and Enhanced Security Mode.

So, you can opt for the protection of selected pages, an optimized protection or on all pages. In all cases it offers 1GB of free data traffic through the VPN, less than what it has allowed during the test.

As reported in Neowin, although this tool has begun to reach end users of Microsoft Edge, the company has yet to officially announce it and also offer the prices for the additional GB that they want to contract.
