User impact, Admin impact



No sooner than 30 days from today, we plan to enable a configuration change for your organization to help move users from the legacy Internet Explorer 11 (IE11) browser to the faster, more secure, and modern Microsoft Edge browser.
This configuration change creates a better user experience by redirecting users from IE11 to Microsoft Edge. Many websites no longer support the IE11 browser, resulting in degraded or broken experiences when users visit them. This trend will only accelerate once the IE11 desktop application goes out of support on June 15, 2022, for certain versions of Windows 10. To help provide a smooth transition, user data (passwords, favorites, etc.) will also be transferred from IE11 to Microsoft Edge as part of this change.
