How to set up the Surfshark browser extension on Edge?

This tutorial will show you how to install and use the Surfshark VPN extension on the Edge browser.

A browser extension is a quick and convenient way to use Surfshark VPN without installing the desktop app. Keep in mind that the Surfshark browser extension only covers browser traffic. That means that other browsers and apps outside of Edge will use your regular network connection.

You will need a computer with the Edge browser and an active Surfshark VPN subscription to follow along.
