How to enable F-secure browsing protection on Edge Chromium?
I have new edge chromium and F-secure Client security 13.11 installed. How can I enable the Browsing protection in Edge Chromium?
E: Browsing protection is enabled on IE and Chrome, but cannot see it in the list of extensions on Edge
PS. How come I'm no t allowed to post questions on this forum, only discussions?

F-Secure Browsing Protection works in Microsoft Edge on Chromium with latest updates in place.
However, the Microsoft Edge web browser does not prompt the end-user to enable the Browsing Protection extension when it is opened for the first time. This issue is spotted in the latest Microsoft Edge on Chromium.
To work around the issue, you will need to forcefully enable the F-Secure Browsing Protection extension in Microsoft Edge on Chromium via GPO by doing the following:
- Download the administrative template for Edge Chromium at here: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/edge/business/download
NOTE: Select the respective build and platform, and click on "Get policy files" to download the administrative template
- Extract and import the administrative template(from \windows\adm\msedge.adm) you downloaded in step 1 into Group Policy Editor.
- Setup the GPO at Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > Classic Administrative Templates (ADM) > Microsoft Edge > Extensions > Control which extensions are installed silently (Change to "Enabled") together the following:
Extension ID: jmjjnhpacphpjmnnlnccpfmhkcloaade
Auto-Update URL: https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx
The GPO configuration is similar to the steps as documented for Google Chrome:
Thanks jamesch!. I have the policy in place (since I want to force this on all users), but without auto-update URL. I'll check that.1
Thanks @jamesch for solving my problem.0
