Updated Microsoft Edge browser

In the later Windows 10 update, Microsoft has already improved its Edge Browser by adding features that allow you to save your web passwords and credentials. Once you have signed in or logged in to your favorite website, there will a dialogue box pops up, asking you whether you want to save your credentials. In the future, all logins are just automatic.

I know many of you are using the Microsoft Edge browser as the primary browser, so there are multiple credentials saved. All this can help you view your password for a specific address and add it to other apps. Additionally, you can also notice that there is no direct way to access your passwords in Microsoft Edge even when it’s easy to edit or delete saved passwords without being able to view them. Due to security features that are added in Edge browser for better privacy and security, you can only see asterisk instead of the display password.

Credential Manager

Fortunately, there is still a way for you to view your passwords in case you do not remember. You can do it easily by following the simple steps that are going to be listed below without the need for third-party software. The passwords can easily be managed by opening Credential Manager, which is an inbuilt utility. The Credential Manager allows you to see all your saved passwords in Microsoft Edge browser and even remove them if you want. To do so:

  1. In the search box, enter “Credential Manager” and press
  2. From the Credential Manager menu, choose Web Credentials and you can view URLs for Microsoft Edge passwords that are saved.

3. Click on the URL that you want to view the saved password

4. If it does not show up after the last instruction, you should not worry since the Credentials Manager will not show passwords by default.

5. To view your password, simply click on Show link and you will be asked to enter your password. The account password here is your username or Microsoft account.
