    How to Export Saved Passwords for Sites in Microsoft Edge Chromium


    Microsoft has adopted the Chromium open source project in the development of Microsoft Edge on the desktop to create better web compatibility. This new Microsoft Edge runs on the same Chromium web engine as the Google Chrome browser, offering you best in class web compatibility and performance.

    The new Chromium based Microsoft Edge is supported on all versions of Windows 7, Windows 8.1, Windows 10, Windows Server (2016 and above), Windows Server (2008 R2 to 2012 R2), and macOS.

    When you visit a website that requires you to sign in, the new Microsoft Edge will ask if you want your user name and password remembered. The next time you visit the site, the browser will finish filling in your account info. Password saving is turned on by default.

    This tutorial will show you how to export a list of all your saved passwords for sites to a CSV file in the Chromium based Microsoft Edge.

    When you export your saved passwords for sites in Microsoft Edge to a CSV file, your passwords will be visible to anyone who can see the exported file.


    EXAMPLE: Exported passwords from Microsoft Edge

    Is there a way to restore or import the exported CSV file instead of meeting the sites again and import usernames and passwords one by one by Edge's save password offer option?

    Hello,

    I haven't seen an option to easily import saved passwords yet.

    This below would be the easiest way to export and import everything in Microsoft Edge.
