Microsoft Edge has a built-in password manager that offers to save all your passwords. When you log in to a new website, Edge will prompt you to save the login details. But this can get quite annoying. Here’s how to disable the pop-ups in Microsoft Edge.

If you’re planning to use a password manager, we recommend that you go with a dedicated password management service like LastPass or Bitwarden. These services are not browser-dependent and have strong native clients as well as browser extensions.

But before you do that, first, let’s disable the save login prompts from Microsoft Edge. The steps are different for Microsoft Edge for desktop, Android, iPhone, and iPad.
