Hi all, 

Does Kaspersky Total Security, more specifically Safe Money support the new Microsoft Chromium powered Edge browser which will be rolled out in the next few days ?

 

Any info would be appreciated.

Hello @SydneyGuy,

Welcome!

According to Kaspersky:

Microsoft Edge Dev browser, supports KPM extension. It is a Beta version of Chromium-based Edge and is scheduled to be released on January 15, 2020. The support (Kaspersky) availability of the product under development is only valid for the new Mirosoft Edge Chromium.

Also, since its release in 2018, there are no newer versions of the KPM extension in the Microsoft Store.

Hello @SydneyGuy,

You’re welcome!

It’s a bit confusing, their reference documentation states: Microsoft Edge (not supported in versions later than Microsoft Windows 10 1803), however, that actually applies to “old” Edge, not Edge Chromium.

Another (Kaspersky Password Manager) reference document states “In Patch B we've added support for the Microsoft Edge Dev browser, which is based on the Chromium kernel, this is depite the fact Kaspersky continually states, Kaspersky does not support any 3rd party software that’s in development software, however, now Edge Chromium has been commercially released, Kaspersky may well publish documentation that clearly defines the compatability/support.

Their documentation is frequently late in relation to new versions, patches & the rest. 

I'll keep you posted (in the your topic), if any new relevant information becomes available. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Dear users, Hello:

Unfortunately, this browser is not currently supported, and our R & D department is working on this issue.

It is expected to be supported in the program's "I" patch. Please wait patiently to see the related patches after they are released.

If you have any questions, please continue to feedback or contact us by email.

I can confirm that new Microsoft Edge (based in Chrome) works in upcoming K2021, I’m currently running KTS2021 last beta and Safe Money works…

Okay this is good news. I have KTS 2020 which I only purchased 2 months ago. Would this patch be rolled out to my product do you think ?

KTS2021beta is not a patch, is the new upcoming version of Kaspersky Home products, but probably Kaspersky soon will give support to this new Ms-Edge version to versions K2020 and K2019 via a  new patch...

Good to hear they are working on it

So this is the beta KTS2021? Is that why the browser extension is also working there? I have kaspersky security cloud.. I’m guessing/hoping the same functionality will be updated in KSC for the browser extension and safe money?

Hello @pierrep,

Welcome!

When Kaspersky supports Edge Chromium, the support and patches will be applied to all Kaspersky Home AV software, including Kaspersky Security Cloud. 

Thank you:pray_tone3:

Hello @pierrep,

You’re very welcome!

Hmm, yes, me too, however, Edge Chromium was commercially released 15th of Jan 2020, there’s no eta for “when” Kaspersky will actually support it, we’ve just started the year 2020, so maybe support will manifest this year in patch i, otherwise, we all wait for v2021, which is ages away:thinking:

At least KPM/Edge Chromium works:relaxed:

And so what about Brave browser? And other more better faster safer browsers?

Hello @nexon,

The last time I had an extended dialogue with Kaspersky, about Brave, they made it very clear they would not be supporting Brave.

If you wish to, you may contact them, let them know you’d like them to include Brave in their “Supported” browsers. 

Ditto for any other “better faster safer browsers”. 

The more people who log formal requests with Kaspersky Technical Support, the more likely (possibly) there is to be a positive outcome.

Hi @FLOOD

Oh 🙄😭

 

Thanks for update

 

Thats shame.

Can you please update us on when the Chromium Edge will be supported indeed? I am presently using TS 20.0.14.1085

I have it as my default browser under W10, and have indicated that in the settings of Safe Money. But it still opens in Internet Explorer, and that gives problems with a quite a number of sites.

@JW-C5 Welcome. We don’t have an ETA for Patch “I” but the release will be notified in this Topic.

Userlevel 2

Thanks for reacting to my question.

I appreciate that you cannot give a precise ETA, but do we have to think in weeks, or months?

In the latter case, I have to take other measures, as presently Safe Money increasingly is giving problems because many banks and sites do not support IE anymore. And the original EDGE as well did not work properly in most cases.

Hello @JW-C5

Unfortunately, it’s not possible to “know” when a patch will be released. 

Historically, for version 20.0.14.1085, released on July 24, 2019, the patch cycle has been as follows: 

Patches A and B for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on July 24, 2019. Same day. 
Patch C for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on July 29, 2019.  5 days.
Patch D for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on September 5, 2019.  38 days.
Patch E for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on October 23, 2019.  48 days.
Patch F for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on November 25, 2019.  32 days.
Patch G for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on December 9, 2019.  14 days.
Patch H for Kaspersky version 20.0.14.1085 released on February 4, 2020.  56 days.

Additionally, sometimes, anticipated patches are changed, patch D for example, was pushed early as an emergency patch, so all the fixes anticipated in patch D were rolled over & arrived in patch E.

Patches are released, across the globe, in a staggered distribution, meaning, even tho a patch has a release date of x, a patch may not arrive on every device, on the same day.

Thanks for your elucidation.

As I have major problems with Safe Money under (Chromium) EDGE and Internet Explorer, to my regret had to decide to install Google Chrome on my Win10 PC as well.
Now Safe Money works normal, but I sincerly hope that shortly I can use Safe Money under Chromium EDGE, and that I can remove Google Chrome again from my PC.

Hello @JW-C5, JW, 

You’re very welcome:ok_hand_tone3:

Many of us are waiting (patiently & impatiently) for the Microsoft Edge Chromium browser - Kaspersky Protection extension; it’s having a lengthy gestation. 

  • As soon as it’s available this post will be updated. 

Separate but relevant, atm, for Microsoft Edge Chromium browser, Kaspersky Password Manager extension, the extension is sourced and installed from Chrome Web Store, not Microsoft Web Store. 

Kaspersky experts have advised:

quote

an extension for Microsoft Edge Chromium is expected to be released in one of the upcoming KPM patches, at that time Kaspersky users will not have to install the KPM extension from Chrome webstore.”
