Microsoft Edge – May 2021 Update

User Impact

Microsoft Edge Legacy will be replaced by the new Microsoft Edge automatically when you apply the Windows 10 monthly security update in April.

The update is released 30 days prior to the “end of support deadline” on May 9, 2021 however if this update is not applied any business or user actively using a workstation or server using the legacy browser version will immediately place their data at an increased risk of theft, destruction, or cyber attack.

Organisations using End of Support (EOS) products now need to make preparations to upgrade or find replacements, out account managers are here to help and can be contacted directly by calling us on 01782 694288.


Action Required

It doesn’t matter who you are or what type of organisation you manage, support will end for everyone on the same day, it is extremely important that you do not postpone or delay the installation of windows updates during this time to ensure your device updates the browser version installed.

All users with a device on our support and maintenance platform will automatically upgrade in April 2021 If in doubt, please contact a member of our team.
