More and more often these days we need passwords for different websites. Checking email online, social media, shopping, video on demand sites—these and many others all tend to need accounts. With these accounts come usernames and passwords that need to be remembered.
For the past several years web browsers have been including a feature where they remember your log-in information. This feature is nice, but it is a potential security risk, as anyone who has access to your computer can navigate to a site and have the browser enter the account information for them, allowing them access to bank accounts and other sensitive sites.
If you have ever entered your account information and had your web browser save your login information, and now you want to remove that information, you can. Before we begin it is advised that you have your password information stored securely somewhere else for reference. To get started with removing stored passwords in Edge Chromium (Edge) follow the steps detailed in the sections below.
Remove Individual Passwords
If you delete a password by accident, immediately after you delete the password, note that in the top-right corner of the page Edge displays an undo option for approximately 5 seconds. Click undo and the website account data is restored. If you miss that option you would need to navigate to the site, reenter the account information, and save it again.
Remove All Passwords
By removing the log-in information for websites you can protect access to valuable and potentially sensitive information.
