Microsoft Edge is committed to making your browsing experience convenient and secure. The built-in password manager helps you generate strong passwords, provide password health feedback, and warn you if any of your stored passwords are found in a known online leak. Your passwords are securely stored and can be accessed on all platforms – macOS, Linux, and Windows; iOS and Android using Microsoft Authenticator app; even other browsers using Microsoft Autofill extension.

Here's how you can import your passwords from third-party password managers. It’s a two-step process. First, you will need to export your passwords to a CSV file. Second, import the CSV file to Microsoft Edge.


Note: Exported data files are not encrypted, they are stored in plain text. Anyone with access to your exported data files will be able to read your passwords. Do not email exported data files or store them online. Delete the file immediately after importing passwords and empty Recycle Bin or Trash to be safe. On Windows (and most Linux distros), you can right-click on the Recycle Bin and select “Empty Recycle Bin”. On macOS, long-click on the Trash icon in the dock and select “Empty Trash”.
