How to Download and Add NordVPN Extension on Microsoft Edge

By Srijani Ghosh / August 2, 2023

NordVPN has a native Microsoft Edge extension, so there's no need for workarounds or having to enable Chrome extensions on Edge. The process of adding the extension is very simple and takes only a few moments of your time. However, you also need to know what you'll get.

More precisely, NordVPN's extension is different from its native apps. Even though it protects your privacy and unblocks Web content, it still has some limitations. For example, you won't get to select a protocol, access specialized servers, or use this VPN's kill switch.

If you need those features, you should install NordVPN on Windows, Mac, or Linux. However, if you want this VPN to work only within your browser, just keep on reading.
