Enable or disable password suggestion in Microsoft Edge

Microsoft Edge is a useful web browser from Microsoft that helps users generate passwords in the Edge browser. For example, suppose you can register on a website, and a username and password are required. In that case, Microsoft Edge will display a password screen to generate a strong password.

“Microsoft Edge generated this strong password.”

Strong passwords you use in the Edge browser are extremely important – they prevent unauthorized access to your online accounts and devices.

Suppose you choose a very complex and long password. In that case, you make it very difficult for hackers to crack it. Either through a brute-force attack (trying every possible combination of numbers, letters, or special characters) or through an automatic attack that tries thousands of combinations per second to guess your one and only password.

So, the more complex the Microsoft Edge generated password is, the better it secures your online account. Remember that you keep a lot of sensitive information on your account that you don’t want to be stolen.
