How to Enable Super Duper Secure Mode

Turning on Super Super Secure Mode is very simple. First, open Microsoft Edge in Windows, Mac, or Linux and click the three-dot menu icon in the top-right corner, and then select “Settings.”

Open "Settings" from the menu.

Now go to the “Privacy, Search, and Services” section of the Settings page.

Go to the "Privacy, Search, and Services" section.

Scroll down to “Enhance your security on the web” and toggle the switch on. In older versions of Edge, the section is titled “Enable security mitigations for a more secure browser experience.”

Toggle on "Enhance your security on the web."

You get to choose between “Balanced” and “Strict” modes. Balanced mode will only affect websites you don’t visit often. So if there’s any performance hit, it won’t be on your frequently used websites. Strict mode applies to all websites, which means there’s more potential to notice some slowdowns and wonkiness.

Choose one of the modes.

Lastly, you can click “Exceptions” and add any websites that you don’t want Super Duper Secure Mode to interfere with.

Click "Exceptions."

That’s all there is to it. As mentioned, Microsoft is still working on this feature, so it could change a bit over time. It’s a nice simple way to make your web browsing experience just a little more secure.
