Great news to all Microsoft Edge Chromium users. Now, you can easily block insecure contents that are not safe for you to access. Chromium Edge has a new feature, the Insecure Content Blocking. It immediately blocks websites that are not secured or using HTTPs.
Once enabled, only websites with secure HTTPs content are allowed when you browse on your Chromium Edge. It is a site permission that gives you security from website scammers and unsafe links. Users will have two options: execute the changes in every individual website or configure it for all websites.
However, the feature is only available in the Canary Edge Version as of now. You will need to download the latest version from their official website first to enjoy the feature.
How to Enable Insecure Content Blocking
- Type ‘edge://flags’ in the URL bar and press Enter.
- Scroll down the list of options and look for “Blockable mixed content switch as site.”
- Select Enable.
- Click Restart.
After you have enabled the insecure content blocker, configure your exceptions to customize the blocking option. You can manually manage permissions on every individual websites.
How to Manage Site Permissions on Insecure Content
- Type in the URL of the website you want to manage and press Enter.
- Just before the website URL in the address bar, you will see a padlock icon. Click to drop down menu.
- Scroll down and click on Site Permissions.
- A new window will open. Look for Insecure Content on the list and beside it set it to Block to block out contents. If you want to unblock, set it to Allow.
Added security features on your browser increases protection, giving you a peace of mind. You can enjoy the new feature of Microsoft Edge Chromium but take note that it will soon become a default browser early this year. Features of the browser will be smoother and fully functional by then.
