Microsoft Edge Insider Gets Support for Work and School Accounts

Posted on August 22, 2019 by Mehedi Hassan in Microsoft Edge, Web browsers with 8 Comments

Following the recent launch of the new Microsoft Edge beta, Microsoft announced yesterday that it’s adding support for work and school accounts to the browser. Users of the new Microsoft Edge will now be able to login to the browser using their Azure Active Directory work and school accounts. All the latest builds on the canary, dev and beta channels now support work and school accounts.

Support for work and schools accounts is great for those who will be using the new Edge at work or on their school computers. It will not only enable users to sync things like their favorites, passwords, etc. across devices, but it will also enable Single Sign-On, so it will seamlessly let you log in to websites without having to manually enter their credentials. This feature works with sites like Office.com, and it will also work with your organization’s websites, etc.

Microsoft says the company is currently working on expanding the sync feature on the browser, too. Right now, it’s only limited to syncing your favorites, preferences, passwords, and form-fill data — but in the future, Edge will allow you to sync things like your browsing history, installed extensions, and even open tabs.
