NordVPN has a native Microsoft Edge extension, which you can download, install, and access inside your browser easily. Overall, the process is very quick and a great option if you want to connect a VPN on the go while browsing or streaming on Microsoft Edge.

However, the extension does not have all the features that you will find in its native app, and it offers limited functionality. For example, you won't be able to select a protocol, access specialized servers, or use NordVPN's kill switch on an extension. If you need those features, you should set up NordVPN on Windows, Mac, or Linux.

In this article, we will teach you how to set up NordVPN's Edge extension on your computer with easy-to-follow instructions.

Final Thoughts

NordVPN has done a good job of creating a native Edge extension, which makes getting started with this VPN extremely simple. However, don't forget that NordVPN's native VPN clients and apps will give you even more features while still protecting everything you do in your Edge browser.

The process of installing its native app on your Windows, macOS, or Linux computer is just as simple. So, if you wish to set up NordVPN via its native app, use the link to access our central guide, which covers dozens of platforms and devices.
