Will VirtualShield protect my Edge browser?
Yes, it will! Your Microsoft Edge web browser and all of the websites you visit inside of Edge will be fully protected using VirtualShield.
Google Chrome Extension
Microsoft Edge is built on top of the Chromium browser, this means Edge offers support for nearly all extensions that are compatible with Chrome.
You may need to enable Chrome extensions first, before you will be able to install extensions from the Chrome Web Store:
First, click the
three horizontal dots near the
upper-right corner of your browser to open the menu:
Extensions, then enable the
Allow extensions from other stores switch in the
left-hand corner of the Extensions page:
Microsoft will warn you that it
hasn’t verified the extensions in the
Chrome Web Store. Click
Allow to continue:
That's it! You will now be able to install our
Google Chrome extension.
Which version do I choose?
The version you choose to install is entirely up to you. The Google Chrome extension will only protect the websites you visit inside of your browser. It will not protect the other software running on your device.
In order to encrypt your entire internet connection, our Windows desktop application is recommended. The app will protect all of your browsers, including Edge.
The extensions were mostly designed for older computers and Operating Systems, such as Windows XP. However, there are a few advantages to installing the extension.
It won't conflict with your e-mail software, online games, or any of the devices connected to your WiFi network (printer, webcam, etc.). It will also allow you to connect with higher speeds.
