Microsoft Edge will include a free built-in VPN, but it is unlikely to replace your current VPN

You will need to sign in to your Microsoft account in the Edge browser to access the new VPN feature. While one of the main reasons to use a VPN is to prevent online tracking, Microsoft will be collecting tracking data during this preview to help with development. If you are already part of the Microsoft Edge preview channel or download it from the Microsoft Edge Insider page you’ll be able to test it out for yourself. Turn on the Microsoft Edge Secure Network by selecting Settings and more (three dots in the upper-right corner) and then Secure Network.

While Microsoft Edge may not stand a chance against Google Chrome, a new free built-in VPN may help the world’s second most popular browser distinguish itself from competitors Safari and Firefox. The “Microsoft Edge Secure Network” VPN is currently only available to Edge Browser preview channel users and has a monthly data limit of one GB.

You must be signed in to your Microsoft account to initiate the VPN feature. Once initiated, a solid shield icon will appear in the frame of the Edge browser to let you know you are now surfing protected by the Microsoft Secure Network. Remember that you only get one gigabyte of data protection for free every month. So if you watch a lot of videos, you will burn through that gig in about a day.
