With the release of version 109, Microsoft Edge is now available to be managed by third-party Unified Endpoint Management (UEM) solutions in addition to Microsoft Intune. This new capability provides organizations greater flexibility to manage Microsoft Edge through their preferred UEM solution as they embrace Microsoft Edge as their go-to browser for mobile devices.

 

Requesting that Microsoft Edge management expand to third-party UEM solutions has been common feedback from customers, and we're excited to bring this capability to organizations. Previously, Microsoft Edge mobile was not manageable by UEM solutions other than Microsoft Intune.

 

You can find more details on how to manage Microsoft Edge on iOS or Android using Microsoft Intune—such as managing bookmarks or disabling features like InPrivate, sync, etc.—from Manage Microsoft Edge on iOS and Android with Intune | Microsoft Learn.

 

30+ management policies from the Chromium Policy List will be available in the first batch of policies to make Microsoft Edge manageable by other UEM solutions. The details of these 30+ policies are documented on Microsoft Edge Mobile Policy Documentation | Microsoft Learn. We are proactively collecting new policy requirements from our customers—if there is any policy requirement from you, feel free to leave comments in this blog.

 

These 30+ policies are configured via MDM channels, meaning that Microsoft Edge can be managed by any UEM solutions, including Microsoft Intune. Different from the MAM channel configuration today, these management policies do not require user login. Regardless of the login state, the management policies will be applied.

 

We are also working to support additional policies that are only configurable today via MAM with Microsoft Intune via MDM channels. Once these policies are ready, we will update Microsoft Edge Mobile Policy Documentation | Microsoft Learn.
