  • Microsoft Edge Browse & Earn System Requirements

  • The browse & earn program requires Microsoft Edge running on Windows 10.  Customers using Windows 10 Enterprise, Education or Pro editions may have their ‘Diagnostic and usage data’ disabled by their IT department.
    • Click here to learn how to check which version of Windows 10 is installed on your device.
    • To check if usage data has been disabled, go to Start, then select Settings > Privacy > Feedback & diagnostics.  Look at the drop down menu under Diagnostic and usage data.  If the menu is set to Security, your IT department has disabled sharing usage data and this device is not eligible for the program.
    • To turn off metering on your Wi-Fi connection, go to Start, then select Settings > Network & Internet > Wi-Fi > Manage known networks. Select the Wi-Fi network and click Properties, and under Metered connection, turn the Set as metered connection switch to "Off". If the switch is set to "On" and grayed out, this device is not eligible for the program.
