I've tried "Suggest Strong Passwords," but it's not working for me.

I'm on Edge Beta 88.0.705.49

To test, I went to a web site (for which I had no prior account) and went to create an account. I expected Edge to offer passwords. But it didn't.

How do I get this working? Am I missing something?

(Secondarily, how do I use this feature when I change a password? Seems to me, Edge only offers the existing password to fill the password field (not new "Strong Passwords." What I really want to do is replace my old simple passwords with complex ones generated by Edge.)

I have the same problem, the password generator only works in very few websites, not all of them. and I want Edge password generator to suggest strong password during sign up, even when I already have a set of credentials saved in that website.

if you haven't already, submit a feedback using the feedback button on Edge
press (...) menu => help and feedback => submit feedback
Same problem, doesnt work for me in 100 percent of websites in any version or channel. How did it get into stable like that? I did send feedback a while ago but no response so far

Hi,

an update to this, from one of the developers:

https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/discussions/dev-channel-update-to-89-0-774-4-is-live/m-p/2112...

 

"password generation not being offered on many pages is a big issue we're trying to tackle right now.  We're using machine learning to figure out what actually is a sign up page since it's not like there's any standard for them, but to help fill in the gaps, we've got a form here that anybody can fill out if they run into a site that it isn't triggering for: 

https://forms.office.com/Pages/ResponsePage.aspx?id=v4j5cvGGr0GRqy180BHbR123cdFSKdZItI7mcVwhTx1UM1FN...

"

 

I have personally submitted +30 sites so far.

 

@HotCakeX thx, interesting but I wonder how Google did solve the problem. Never had an issue there. I switched back to Chrome because of it.

Chrome had many years to overcome that problem, Edge added this feature only few months ago.
exactly what I am talking about
Same here, I've just reported this to support and ended up here :) hello
on Edge canary, it's working by default on almost all websites.
the changes will gradually come to lower channels too such as Dev, Beta and then stable.
