Browsing without a VPN leaves all of your online activity visible, even if you use a private browsing tab. The NordVPN Edge extension encrypts your browser traffic to stop others from intercepting your personal information.
It also hides your IP address so your ISP can’t monitor your internet activity or sell your data – which often contributes to intrusive ad targeting. With no manual setup, simply hit the ‘Quick Connect’ button to instantly secure your Microsoft Edge browsing.
Unlike the NordVPN app which encrypts your entire device traffic, the NordVPN extension app for Edge only secures your browser traffic on Microsoft Edge, letting you use your real IP address for other connections on your device.
The extension for Microsoft Edge includes all of the security features of NordVPN, including:
The NordVPN Edge extension hides your IP address and lets you change your virtual location. This means that by connecting to different servers around the world, you can keep your home location when you’re abroad.
Public Wi-Fi hotspots aren’t always encrypted so attackers can easily infiltrate your traffic. Before connecting to free Wi-Fi in hotels, airports, shopping malls, and cafes, use your NordVPN extension for Edge. That way, your encrypted traffic and personal information will appear as useless gibberish to any spies.
Microsoft Edge won’t let you disable the WebRTC protocol, which reveals your IP address. Your IP address could potentially reveal highly sensitive information about you, which you certainly don’t want in the wrong hands.
The good news is that the NordVPN Edge extension blocks the WebRTC protocol, reducing the risks significantly.
Easy to use and lightning fast, you won’t have to tolerate constant buffering with the Edge extension.
We also don’t apply any bandwidth restrictions, which can be a common cause for buffering issues.
The NordVPN extension for Microsoft Edge comes with our inbuilt Threat Protection feature. Threat Protection warns you before you visit websites known to host malware, so you’re always at a safe distance from lurking cyber threats. And with phishing scams on the rise year after year, inbuilt protection like this is a no-brainer.
