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.
