ISSUE

I have noticed the more and more issues with Microsoft Edge chromium version after full version release which is fully supported by WIP and Azure AD login. Whenever I tried to access the Azure portal or Intune Portal from Intune Managed Azure AD Registered device (BYOD), it was giving me the following error.

I tried to check edge://policy without much help.

Check your organization’s policies. Visit edge://policy to see the list of blocked URLs and other policies enforced by your organization.

Portal.Azure.com is blocked. The person who setup this computer has blocked this site. Try contacting your organization admin.

FIX

Again, my super-duper helpful colleague Mark Thomas came to help me. I forgot that Microsoft Edge chromium has multiple profile (personal, corporate) options. And unfortunately, I was using my perform profile with Microsoft Edge chromium.

I got more understanding about Microsoft Edge profiles from the documentation. It seems Microsoft Edge with corporate identity (Azure AD user account) works differently than the personal profile.

BlockWIP looks for inappropriate data sharing practices and stops the employee from completing the action. This search can include sharing enterprise data to non-enterprise-protected apps in addition to sharing enterprise data between apps or attempting to share outside of your organization’s network.
This was documented in Microsoft docs – here

Yes, Edge thinks that I can access only Azure Portal, Intune Portal, or Teams Portal only when I logged in with my Azure AD profile into Microsoft Edge.
