Trend Micro Security Extension

The Trend Micro Security extension works with Microsoft Edge to warn you about any security risks associated with the websites you try to visit. The extension should appear automatically in your web browser after you install it successfully from Microsoft Store.

The Trend Micro Security extension works automatically behind the scenes by monitoring websites, and a page rating icon appears next to search results and links shown in these sites:
