In case you do not wish to utilize the "Secure Browser", instead, you want to use the "Edge Chromium" browser, then the "Secure Browser" URL management will not apply to Chrome or Edge browsers setup as Local Applications. 


In this case, please follow the following steps:

  • In the profile go to Computer Settings | Additional Registry Values
  • Add the link you want to "Allow" or "Deny"


To "Block" all URL's within "Edge Chromium" use the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\URLBlocklist

Value Name: 1

Value Type: REG_SZ

Value Data: *


To "Allow" URL use the following registry key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Policies\Microsoft\Edge\URLAllowlist

Value Name: 1

Value Type: REG_SZ

Value Data: teams.microsoft.com (used as an example)


Multiple links can be allowed by adding another registry key:
