Microsoft Edge will soon allow users to disable the 'reveal password' option

Microsoft has been working hard on improving the Chromium-based Edge web browser and the company's upcoming feature will allow users to disable the password reveal button on different websites.

 

Last year, Microsoft added an option to reveal the password on websites after typing in an effort to help users verify their typed passwords. The feature was handy but it posed a security risk as Microsoft does not allow users to set master passwords. Now, the company has added a setting (via Techdows) to make it harder for people to reveal passwords on Microsoft Edge. The new 'disable password reveal' option removes the 'eye icon' on websites preventing users from revealing passwords.

 

The feature is currently available for Microsoft Edge Canary users and can be enabled by following the steps below:

  • Open Microsoft Edge Canary and click on the ellipsis icon on the top right corner
  • Navigate to Settings > Profile > Passwords
  • Turn off the 'Display the "Reveal password" button when entering passwords' toggle

This will disable the eye icon when typing passwords into websites. If you want to re-enable the feature then you can turn on the 'Display the "Reveal password" button when entering passwords' toggle. Currently, the feature is limited to Microsoft Edge Canary users running version 87 or above.

 

Do note that the setting can be overwritten by websites. For instance, turning off password reveal option does not prevent Google from showing the reveal option when signing into Gmail or Google Drive.
