Norton Toolbar and Microsoft Edge Browser Compatibility

Hi Everyone,

Microsoft has introduced a new default browser with Windows 10 called Microsoft Edge. The new browser aims to provide a faster, more flexible and customizable experience.

According to Microsoft, the browser-based products and features that we deliver today will not be compatible with Edge.

The following Norton product features will not be compatible with the new Microsoft Edge browser:

> Identity Safe 
> Safe Search 
> Safe Web
> Anti-phishing
> Scam Insight

We are investigating alternative ways to deliver these technologies for Microsoft Edge. In the meantime, we encourage customers using Norton security products to use Internet Explorer, Firefox or Google Chrome in order to obtain these features.

Note: Internet Explorer will not be going away completely; it will still be available on Windows 10 for legacy compatibility purposes

Norton has been working diligently to ensure our products work flawlessly with Windows 10. Our existing Norton customers need to take advantage of the free update to the latest version of Norton [] to ensure that they’re Windows 10-ready on day one.

We'll post an update when we have more information on the compatibility between Norton Toolbar & Microsoft Edge.
