When I'm using a VPN from another country, the sync features like settings, address, passwords are turned on (usually takes few mins for the edge canary to realize the different IP address). but when VPN is turned off I only have the favorites sync and the others are grey as if they aren't even made available.

I tried this on different machines and I get the same results.

I'd appreciate if someone from Edge support team respond to this. thanks in advance

Some people in the community reported the same thing as well. my best guess is that they're rolling out features slowly to the users, so even if there is some kind of restrictions, it should be temporary. you can read more about it here and talk to the Edge team: https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Articles/Controlled-Feature-Roll-outs-in-Microsoft-Edge/m-p/7...
