Microsoft Edge Getting a New Password Security Feature
Microsoft has announced new password security capabilities for Microsoft Edge, as the browser keeps evolving on all platforms.
The application was already capable of monitoring the passwords and warn when they’ve been exposed, but thanks to this new update, it can also point users directly to the password changing screen on the service they use.
The new feature is currently available in the pilot stage, so only a few sites are currently supporting it, but Microsoft says it’s working around the clock on getting it ready for everybody, and an expansion is expected in the coming months.
“Should any of your saved credentials become compromised or need to be updated due to lack of strength/reused across multiple sites, you will now have the option to update passwords with just one click. Simply navigate to the Settings/Passwords page within Microsoft Edge and click on Change right next to the credentials you’d like to update,” Microsoft explains.
