Enable and Manage Passwords & Form-fill in Edge browser

Microsoft Edge browser lets you remember and manage passwords in Windows 10. Although the feature is pretty basic, it is good enough and meets the purpose. Like most browsers, Edge also supports Form-fill. This feature remembers your oft-filled information and offers to fill the web forms automatically for you.

Enable Passwords & Form-fill in Edge

To enable Passwords and Form-fill, you will have to open Edge and click on the 3-dotted More actions link in the top right corner. Click on Settings and then scroll down and click on the View advanced settings button.

Under Privacy and Services, you will see two sliders – Offer to save passwords and Save form entries. Move the buttons to the On position.


This will ensure that the next time you fill passwords or fill forms on any website, Edge will securely save this data.

Manage Passwords in Edge browser

If you wish to manage the passwords, click on the Manage my saved passwords link, to open the following panel. here you will see the list of websites for which Edge has saved your login username and passwords.


To remove a website, click on the X sign on the right side.

To change a password, click on the website name. The following panel will open, displaying the website URL, the username and password. The password will not be visible but will be represented by dots.


You can change your username and password here, should you need to and click on save to save the new credentials.

That is all there is to it.

If you launch Edge > Settings and more > Settings > View advanced settings > Manage passwords you will see the websites for which passwords have been saved. To see them, you can launch the Credential Manager.

If you need a feature-rich password management tool, you may check out some these free password manager software or online password managers, but I am not sure how many of them support Edge browser at this point of time.
