If you started using the new Chromium-based Microsoft Edge browser and want to manage, view or delete saved passwords in this browser, then this guide will help you. At the present time, you may not be able to export the passwords, but you will be able to view and delete them from the browser.
We often save passwords for various websites in the browser so that we can quickly log in to our account. While it's best to use a password manager, many people prefer to use the browser.
