Microsoft Edge browser is not supported for use with Data Loss Prevention Endpoint
Technical Articles ID:   KB89089
Last Modified:  5/9/2018


McAfee Data Loss Prevention Endpoint (DLP Endpoint) 11.x.x, 10.x.x


The release of Microsoft Windows 10 has introduced a new version of the Microsoft Edge browser. Microsoft Edge cannot be successfully protected by DLP Endpoint and is considered an unsupported browser when DLP Endpoint is installed. The Microsoft Edge versions that are not supported are:
  • Microsoft Edge v40 and above (with DLP Endpoint 10.x.x).
  • Microsoft Edge v42 and above (with DLP Endpoint 11.x.x).
Technical Support recommends that you implement the following workaround to restrict the use of the Microsoft Edge browser on clients.

NOTE: DLP Endpoint does not protect Microsoft Edge with DLP Web Post Protection rules. This issue is not considered to be a compatibility issue or a known issue.


Disable Microsoft Edge using AppLocker group policy:

  1. Open Group Policy Management.
  2. Navigate to Computer Configuration, Windows settings, Security settings, Application Control Policies, AppLocker.
  3. Right-click on Packaged App Rules and create a rule.
  4. In the Permissions tab, choose Deny for the relevant users or groups.
  5. In the Publisher tab, go to Use An Installed Packaged App As A Reference and select Microsoft Edge.
  6. Define the rule name and click Create
