I didn't notice at first because I usually use Firefox, but Browser Guard is available for EDGE...

When I updated MBAM, I was offered Browser Guard, I already have it on Firefox, but I did not uncheck it.

The next time I opened "Edge", I was prompted to install Malwarebytes Browser Guard. As far as I can tell installation was successful.
