KUALA LUMPUR, Sept 29 (Bernama) -- Cloudflare Inc announced that Microsoft Edge is leveraging Cloudflare’s Privacy Proxy technology, a key part of Cloudflare’s privacy stack, to enable its Edge Secure Network feature.
According to Cloudflare in a statement, this integration will allow Microsoft Edge users who opt in to browse the Internet more privately, without being tracked across websites.
It provides an extra layer of protection when browsing the web and visiting unfamiliar sites, ultimately reducing risk and enhancing security for Internet users.
“This integration with Microsoft Edge will give Internet users peace of mind when it comes to connecting to public Wi-Fi at coffee shops or airports, shopping online, and masking the original sin of the internet, IP addresses,” said Cloudflare chief executive officer, Matthew Prince.
Meanwhile, Microsoft Edge Principal Product Manager, Andrew Nolan said: “We are excited to be working with Cloudflare because of its reputation for building privacy-forward technologies and deep involvement in developing the next generation of open privacy-enabling protocols.
“This integration ensures privacy and balances performance, giving our users protection in the moments they need it the most. Embedding privacy preserving technology into the Microsoft Edge browser demonstrates our continued commitment to provide our users with advanced security and peace of mind as they browse online.”
Cloudflare’s privacy-first approach, paired with Microsoft Edge Secure Network, supercharges Internet users’ ability to access potentially unsafe URLs, such as those served over an insecure HTTP connection, securely, routing traffic through an encrypted tunnel.
This integration provides Edge users with automatic browser traffic security; connection encryption; online tracking prevention; and location privacy.
