Microsoft Edge Secure Network will soon make it possible to encrypt Internet connections through Edge. Unfortunately, some Windows insiders have to access the preview.
Microsoft Edge Secure Network came about through a collaboration between Microsoft and Cloudflare. The upcoming feature is mainly similar to Cloudflare 188.8.131.52, an existing app for shielding Internet traffic.
According to Microsoft, the feature ensures that data is sent from Edge through an encrypted channel. The encryption is continually applied, including HTTP connections. This makes it harder for attackers to steal browser data over public Wi-Fi networks.
