Turn password hints on or off in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is the update that Microsoft introduced in Windows 10 as a replacement for Internet Explorer and Edge is based on Chromium so its environment and operation is identical to Google Chrome, one of the functions that Microsoft Edge offers us is password suggestions. This is a function with which the browser automatically gives us the option to generate and save 100% secure passwords..


If we are not in a secure environment, it is not advisable to have password hints enabled as someone could easily access them in Microsoft Edge. This is due to the fact that many users establish passwords that can be violated such as their ID, telephone number, birthday, etc. If you want to activate or deactivate this function we will see the step by step to achieve it.
