Stage 2: Deploy ConcealBrowse Extension to each browser

We highly recommend verifying that the ConcealBrowse helper application has installed on endpoints before configuring your browsers to install the ConcealBrowse Extension. If the extension is installed prior to the helper, the user will be prompted to log in which may cause confusion and disruption for your support team.

These steps may vary depending on how you manage each browser. As this article is targeted to Intune, we will assume you manage your browsers with Intune.

Follow these steps all the way through for each browser you are configuring
