Microsoft Edge has recently added up an important feature to its Wallet app: the ability to ass password notes to the passwords saved there. This feature will allow you to easily remember your passwords, by noting details around them.

However, it seems that Microsoft has taken the app a bit further, and now Edge Wallet will become an official PWA (Progressive Web Apps) app. You’ll no longer have to look elsewhere for Wallet because you will be able to download it, install it, and set it up right from your Edge browser.

With the wallet all set up, you’ll be able to add passwords and password notes, and we recommend you go for personal information and details, so that only you know their meanings.

The Redmond-based tech giant has made it very easy to install your Wallet, as spotted by Windows enthusiast, @Leopeva64. It will only take you 2 clicks to do it, and as with all PWA apps, all the processes will happen in Edge.

How to set up your Edge Wallet

  1. In your Edge browser, click on the boxed icon within the address to set up edge wallet
  2. This icon will automatically open up a new panel; here, click on the Install button.
  3. The wallet app will then install and you’ll be able to use it.

It’s quite simple to get around the app. As with most wallet apps, the Edge wallet will save your cards, passwords, and other monetary devices that you use.

With it, you’ll be able to pay for your online purchases, with a few clicks, without having to type in all of the credit card information.

Plus, as we mentioned earlier, this wallet will let you save passwords for your social media platforms, as well. You’ll just need to add them there, along with their respective passwords. And, to not forget the passwords, you can add notes to them.

Update: you’ll be able to access your Wallet right from the ellipsis menu

As spotted by Windows enthusiast @Leopeva64, you’ll be able to access your Edge Wallet right the ellipsis menu.

This should make it even easier for you to access it, as it won’t require you to go to Settings and access it from there.
