Like all other modern browsers, Microsoft Edge also supports feature to save passwords. This will help you login to any website directly whose login credentials are saved by you in Microsoft Edge. However, if you simply avoid browsers to save your passwords (may be you are using LastPass or some other password manager), then you probably want to turn off that password save prompt. Like other browsers, Microsoft Edge also provides native option to enable or disable password save prompt.
I have covered this step by step guide for you to make this task very easy. You can set the changes permanently or for the time being. Whatever is the case, one thing is sure that Microsoft Edge will ask you for saving passwords only when you want it for that.
Steps To Enable or Disable Prompt To Save Passwords In Microsoft Edge via Advanced Settings
1). Launch Microsoft Edge browser and then click that More icon (three horizontal dots) present at the top right corner. A pop-up will open that contains many options. Give a tap on Settings option.
2). Under Settings, scroll down, and then tap on View advanced settings button.
3). Under Advanced Settings, there are many other options. Scroll down the list and find Privacy and settings section. There you will see Offer to save passwords option, which is turned on by default. Turn off that button.
This is it! Microsoft Edge will not prompt you to save passwords anymore.
In case you change your mind later, then you can follow the above steps, but this time you need to turn on Offer to save passwords option.

So this is how you can enable or disable the prompt to save passwords in Microsoft Edge. We all have so many accounts (work accounts, social accounts, etc.) and remembering passwords of all those accounts is not really easy. Therefore, browsers like Microsoft Edge provide this feature to save passwords so that we can later access any website without entering the passwords. However, when we are more concerned about privacy and security, then we simply avoid storing passwords in browsers. So if you also feel the same and use Microsoft Edge as your default browser, then you can set if you want to view that prompt for saving passwords in Microsoft Edge or you just want to disable it.
