Clear Saved Email Address: How to stop Microsoft Edge from remembering your email ID

An email address is a unique identifier for an email account. It is used to send and receive email messages over the Internet. This is similar to physical mail, an email message requires an address for both the sender and recipient in order to be sent successfully.

The general format of an email address is local-part@domain, and a specific example is contact@techdirectarchive.com. An address consists of two parts. The part before the @ symbol (local part) identifies the name of a mailbox. This is often the username of the recipient. Now that we fully understand what an email address is., let’s proceed to resolve this issue.

Open Microsoft Edge and click the three dots in the top right corner.
– Navigate to Edge Settings, you can use this URL on Edge edge://settings/addresses
– Click on Profiles
– Switch the save and fill address off as shown below
– If there are email addresses you do not want Edge to remember, you can delete them from here as well.

As you can see below, we have turned off the option to have our email addresses saved (remembered) by Edge.
– As you can see also, you no longer have the option to “Add address”

If you do not want to take this route to remove these email addresses, you can temporarily clear them by clearing the cache.
– Note: You ca also use an extension to do this.

Navigate to edge settings, here is the URL: edge://settings/privacy
– Click on the Privacy, search and services window
– Under the browser data session,
– Click on clear browsing data as shown below
