How to Delete Saved Passwords for Websites in Microsoft Edge Chromium

Each time you enter some credentials for a website, Microsoft Edge asks you to save them.  If you accept the offer, the next time you open the same web site, your browser will auto-fill the saved credentials. If you are signed in to Edge with your Microsoft account, you can use your passwords on various devices like PCs, tablets and laptops, as they will be synced


Microsoft Edge is now a Chromium-based browser with a number of exclusive features like Read Aloud and services tied to Microsoft instead of Google. The browser has already received a few updates, with support for ARM64 devices in Edge Stable 80. Also, Microsoft Edge is still supporting a number of aging Windows versions, including Windows 7, which has recently reached its end of support.

Pre-release Edge versions

For pre-release versions, Microsoft is currently using three channels to deliver updates to Edge Insiders. The Canary channel receives updates daily (except Saturday and Sunday), the Dev channel is getting updates weekly, and the Beta channel is updated every 6 weeks. Microsoft is going to support Edge Chromium on Windows 7, 8.1 and 10, alongside macOS, Linux (coming in the future) and mobile apps on iOS and Android. Windows 7 users will receive updates until July 15, 2021.

Password saving

When you visit a website that requires you to sign in with a user name, email and password, the Microsoft Edge will display a prompt to remember your user name and password. The next time you open this website, the browser will auto-fill in your credentials. This feature is enabled by default.

If you have accidentally clicked on the save password button, or do not want the browser to remember your user name and password for some specific website, you can delete any of the saved credentials in Microsoft Edge.
