Disable Edge's Built-in Password Manager

As a team owner or administrator, you have the option to disable the default browser password manager for your team. By doing so, you ensure that all passwords are saved exclusively in Florence StudyOrganizer to avoid conflicts. If you're using Edge, you can follow these simple steps to turn off the browser password manager.

  1. Press the Windows logo key + R and enter the following line to open Group Policy Management:
  2. In the Group Policy Editor, open Administrative Templates > Microsoft Edge > Password manager and protection.
  3. Choose “Enable saving passwords to the password manager" and click Enable > Apply > OK.

To verify that the built-in password manager is turned off, open Edge, click the Edge menu in the toolbar, and choose Settings > Autofill > Passwords.


If your team doesn’t use Windows Pro or Enterprise

If your team doesn’t use Windows Pro or Enterprise and can’t access Group Policy Manager, follow these steps to turn off the built-in password manager in the browser on any Windows PC:

  1. Press the Windows logo key + R and enter “regedit”.

  2. In the address bar, enter the following path for your computer:


    If you don't see the Policies folder, click Edit in the menu bar, choose New, and create a new folder called "Policies".

  3. Click New in the menu bar and create a folder called Microsoft. In the Microsoft folder, create a folder called Edge.

  4. Click Edit in the menu bar, choose New, and create a DWORD (32-bit) Value key called PasswordManagerEnabled.

  5. Right-click the PasswordManagerEnabled key, choose Modify, and enter 0 in the “Value data” field.
