Compatibility of Norton Toolbar and Norton Identity Safe with Microsoft Edge browser

After you upgrade to Windows 10, and have Microsoft Edge as your default browser, the Norton product may alert you to select a supported browser.

Is Microsoft Edge compatible with Norton Identity Safe?

  • Based on information Microsoft has provided to date, several browser-based protection and identity features that are provided in Norton products are not compatible with Edge, including Identity Safe, Norton Toolbar, Safe Search, Safe Web, Antiphishing, and Scam Insight.

    Microsoft has indicated that it will continue to improve Edge and will allow more browser extensions in the near future.

How do I safely browse till the Norton product becomes compatible with Microsoft Edge?

  • We are investigating alternative ways to deliver these features for Microsoft Edge. In the meantime, we encourage customers using Norton security products to use Internet Explorer or other supported web browser like Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox* to enjoy these features.

Change your default browser

  1. In the main screen, on the bottom-left corner, click the Windows icon, and then click Settings.

  2. In the Settings window, click System.

  3. In the System window, click Default apps.

  4. On the right pane, scroll down to Web browser, and click on Microsoft Edge.

  5. In the Choose an app dialog box, select your preferred web browser.

    If you cannot find Internet Explorer in the list, you need to manually enable it. If you chose a different browser but want to make Microsoft Edge your default browser again, click Reset.
