Now that Microsoft Edge supports extensions, are you guys planning on writing something similar to the Chrome/Firefox extensions? It relys on the same WebExtension APIs as Chrome, so it should be pretty simple to port.

Hello BarneyFifeFan,

Thank you for your post! I have not heard any recent news about an extension for Edge, but it would certainly be beneficial for our users to have now that the ability in Edge is there. I will speak with our developers and keep you up to date! If you have any further questions feel free to contact our Customer Service at 877.479.1119.

Best regards,

Hi Annelise

Any News on an Edge extension? Microsoft Edge is almost unusable with CE at the moment, but I have to use Edge (Company requires it). Can't you just convert the existing Chrome extension to Edge? Here's some information on that: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/microsoft-edge/extensions/guides/porting-chrome-extensions

Best regards,

Elias

Same question. Edge is becoming a browser of choice for me and being as it is Microsoft's flagship browser, I would think Covenant Eyes would be interested in supporting it, on mobile as well.

Hello Matt and Elias,

Thank you for following up! Our developers were able to take a look at applying our extension to the Edge browser, but unfortunately Microsoft blocks communication that we rely on for transmitting logs from the extension to our client. This communication is vital for providing our user's with a clearer report. At this time we do not have plans to pursue this further. I do apologize for any inconvenience this causes.

If you have any more questions feel free to contact our Customer Service at 877.479.1119.

Best regards,
Annelise
