Starting with version 96 and higher releases, Microsoft Edge includes a new feature formerly known as Super Duper Secure Mode, which adds an extra layer of security and helps protect the browser from malware.
Enable security mitigations on Microsoft Edge
To enable security mitigations to make the browsing experience more secure, use these steps:
Open Microsoft Edge.
Click the ellipses (three-dotted) menu and select the Settings option.
Under the “Security” section, turn on the Enable security mitigations for a more secure browser experience toggle switch.
Select one of the available options:
- Balanced: Adds security mitigations for sites you don’t frequently visit. This option makes most websites as expected and blocks security threats.
- Strict: Adds security mitigations for all sites. However, parts of sites might not work and block security threats.
(Optional) Click the Exceptions option to prevent specific sites from using this feature.
Click the Add a site button.
Confirm the website you don’t want to mitigate.
Click the Add button.
Once you complete the steps, the browser will offer an extra layer of protection while surfing the internet.
If you enable and configure the security feature, but some websites are not working as expected, change the configuration level, add the site to the exception list, or turn off the feature.
These instructions are meant for Windows 11, but the same steps will work on Windows 10 or any platform where the feature is supported.
