This brief tutorial shows students and new users how to view saved passwords using the Microsoft Edge web browser.
Microsoft Edge allows you to save your passwords for websites you log in to with a username and password. This can help in cases where you don’t always need to remember your login for websites you visit a lot.
If you try logging in with another device to the same website and can’t remember the password used previously, you can use Microsoft Edge’s saved password feature to retrieve it.
This feature may be disabled in some work environments for security reasons, however, for personal and home users, this is great to have especially when logging into multiple websites daily.
This is secure in that you’ll still need to authenticate with Windows to view saved passwords.
To get started with viewing your saved passwords, follow the steps below:
Viewing saved passwords in Edge
First, open Edge. In the upper-right corner of Edge, click the three horizontal dots. When the menu shows up, click “Settings.”
On the “Settings” screen, under your “Profile1” section, click “Passwords.”
On the “Passwords” screen, look for the section labeled “Saved Passwords.” The entries listed are websites and apps that should be selected to save your login details in Edge.
Details of each entry include the website name, your username, and an obscured password. To see a hidden password entry, click the eye icon next to it.
You can also use the password field to search the entries, especially if the list is too long.
When you click the eye icon next to the hidden password, Windows will prompt you to type your username and/or password.
Type the correct Windows credentials to view the hidden password. If the correct credentials were entered, you’ll be able to view the saved password for the website.
That should do it!
