Add, Edit, and Manage Saved Passwords in Edge on Android

Do you use the Edge browser to remember and autofill the saved passwords on your Android? Learn how to manage your credentials securely on your device.

The Edge browser for Android has a feature where it requests whether to save the unknown password and username into its password manager.

The feature is useful when you must frequently sign in and remember the password. We can easily manage the saved password and view it only after authentication.

Add and Manage Passwords on Edge browser

Whenever you log in to any online account for the first time, Microsoft Edge pops a bar asking whether the username and password will be stored. If you allow it, your credentials are stored safely in the local browser.

A saved password makes the next sign-in effortless without needing to enter the username and password again and again manually.

The passwords are locally stored in the browser storage. The username, corresponding password, and site URL are stored.

Also, if the Edge browser is logged in with a Microsoft account, the password is synced across all the Microsoft Edge logged-in devices, just like the Google Chrome password sync.

Manage Saved Passwords

You can locate and manage the saved passwords within the Edge on Android smartphones. By default, the save passwords option is already enabled; if not, passwords won’t be saved.

Here are the steps to manage the saved passwords:

  1. Launch the Microsoft Edge app for Android.
  2. Tap on the More horizontal 3dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select the Settings menu from the list and tap on your profile icon.
  4. Select the Passwords.

  5. There you can view the list of all the saved passwords.

You can now view the credentials and edit or delete the username and password from the saved passwords tab. All of this is available under the manage passwords.

It’s essential to ensure the Save Password toggle button is enabled. If not enabled, then the password is not saved in browser storage. You can also enable or disable the Auto sign-in feature on the Passwords settings page.

View Saved Passwords

If you have already saved a password, then Edge for Android allows viewing the saved password. However, you must validate the phone pattern or PIN as an extra security step.

Here are the steps to view the saved passwords:

  1. Launch the Microsoft Edge app for Android.
  2. Tap on the More horizontal 3dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select the Settings menu from the list and tap on your Profile icon.
  4. Select the Passwords.
    There you can view the list of all the saved passwords.
  5. Select any online account view details.
  6. Tap on the eye icon next to the password to view the saved password corresponding to the account.

To unhide the password, enter the phone or lock pin, or input the security pattern. However, the username and the website address will be visible.

You can also copy the saved password without viewing it. Just tap on the copy command icon next to the hidden password field and paste it to the desired location. It is the best way to manage saved passwords on Android.

Edit Saved Passwords Details

You can only edit the username and website URL within the Saved Passwords tab. The option to change the password is not available.

If you want to change the saved password, log in to your online account with the new password, and tap the update password command button in the pop-up bar.

Here are the steps to edit the saved passwords details:

  1. Launch Edge app for Android.
  2. Tap on the More horizontal 3dots icon menu for options.
  3. Select the Settings menu from the list.
  4. Tap on your profile icon and select the Passwords.
  5. Tap on any online account that you want to edit.

If a saved password and username are no longer in use, you can delete the stored password from the Edge from your Android smartphone. You can open the saved password details and delete the password record.

Bottom Line

Microsoft Edge for Android stores an online account’s username and corresponding password in its storage. It reduces the effort to remember the username and password of websites. The saved passwords can be managed by options that let you add, edit, or delete them from the device storage.

Also, I used to save all the passwords in the Edge Browser, and in case I need to view the passwords, I can do it easily with the Password Manager of the Edge Android System. Apart from this, if you have changed any of your passwords, you can easily edit or delete them from Edge Browser.

Similarly, we can also save and manage saved passwords in Edge Computer browsers. If you’ve logged in with Microsoft account on both the device and browser, the password is automatically synced from mobile to desktop and vice versa.
