It’s a well-known fact that we can manually add passwords to Chrome Canary’s password manager. But what about the users that don’t use Chrome and have opted for Edge instead?

Well, you’ll surely be pleased to find out that developers haven’t forgotten about you and, as noticed on Reddit by fellow Edge users, the feature is now available in Microsoft’s Edge Canary too.

How’s that for some 2022 good news?

Edge Canary doesn’t use flags to turn on the feature

However, unlike Chrome, where you have to enable this feature through Chrome://flags, it doesn’t appear as though any flags need adjusting in Edge Canary to be able to input passwords manually.

If you’re also interested in giving it a go, which we’re pretty much sure you are, note that you’ll need to have build 99.0.1124.0 installed, a build that is described as a controlled rollout.

In fact, all you have to do if you want to manually add passwords is access the Settings page of the browser and select the Profile tab.

This section will automatically give you this option, and adding them is easier than you might have expected.

This year will be a great one for technology altogether, and it will be interesting to see giant companies, such as Google and Microsoft, compete for top spots in everything.

Good things will surely come out of this rivalry, as both will try to outdo each other and come up with more useful, futuristic features for their software.

It’s also important to note that Edge Canary is three versions ahead of the stable channel, meaning that users here will get to test features before everybody else.

This being said, with major new versions arriving every four weeks on the stable channel, it’s safe to say that you won’t be waiting long for manual password adding.
