Surfshark VPN vs. free VPNs

While a free Edge extension might seem enticing, there is no such thing as a free VPN. A VPN is a service that needs money to operate. Free VPNs just get it through other means, like bombarding you with annoying ads or selling your data. So, choose a premium VPN over a free one for your Edge browser for a trustworthy service and robust features:

No logs

No logs

Good premium VPN services have strict no-logs policies and no incentive to track user browsing activity since they don’t need to sell user data to finance themselves.

No gimmicks

No gimmicks

Research and development cost money. For premium VPN developers, their subscription models provide a steady flow of funds for such projects.

Unlimited data

Unlimited data

Free VPNs often limit your speed or data to make you buy the premium version. Since you’re already paying for a premium VPN, it comes with unlimited bandwidth.

Prioritizing security

Prioritized security

Keeping a secure and modern VPN network requires a lot of money, which premium VPNs can afford thanks to their subscription-based model.

Thousands of servers

Thousands of servers

Premium VPNs like Surfshark have more servers in more locations. If a VPN provider offers servers in many different locations, you’re more likely to have one in your country or the next one nearby, which is great for speeds!

Good speeds

Good speeds

The steady flow of money from subscriptions allows for improved server infrastructure and more servers to ease congestion.

What’s the difference between an Edge extension and an Edge proxy extension?

The difference between an Edge extension and an Edge proxy extension is that the extension refers to a small add-on to your browser in the most general sense. An Edge proxy extension refers to that add-on’s function — it will use a proxy server.

Does Microsoft Edge have a VPN proxy extension?

Yes, Microsoft Edge VPN proxy extensions are available. However, unlike the app, proxy extensions can only protect the traffic on your browser. The VPN proxy extension won’t protect that traffic if you use the internet on other apps.

Does Edge have a built-in VPN?

Microsoft Edge Secure Network is the VPN functionality baked into Edge. Users can switch it on after logging in with a Microsoft account. It’s mostly meant for security purposes and provides no server location options, as well as being limited to 5GB/month.

What is the best free VPN proxy extension for Edge?

Though there are many free VPN proxy extensions available, it’s not worth the risk. Often, these free proxy extensions live off of monetizing what you do online. Regarding speed, features, and server variety, it’s also of much lower quality than a paid VPN proxy extension.

How do I set up a VPN proxy extension for Microsoft Edge?

To activate a VPN extension on Edge, you need to get it via the Microsoft Edge Add-ons. Simply navigate to the one you like and click Get. 

Or get Surfshark and check out the support guide on how to set up the Surfshark browser extension on Edge.

How do I know if my VPN Edge extension is working?

There are several ways to check if your VPN works, like checking your IP address or performing a DNS leak test. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Turn your VPN off. 
  2. Run the DNS leak test and your IP address test. 
  3. Note down the results. 
  4. Turn the VPN extension on.
  5. Run the tests again. 
  6. If the results are the same as when you ran the tests the first time, your VPN extension isn’t working.
