Microsoft is working in a password import option for its Edge web browser. Current versions of the Chromium-based version of Microsoft Edge -- the classic version is retired this month -- support exporting passwords to CSV files, but lack options to import passwords from CSV files.
Users who want to import passwords into Edge, e.g. from a password manager or another copy of the browser that runs on a different machine, face difficulties in current versions of the web browser. While you can use sync to synchronize passwords between Edge instances, no such option exist to bring passwords saved in password managers into the browser's password storage.
Microsoft launched a new option in Microsoft Edge Canary 90 that is designed to change that. It is an experimental option at the time of writing, and that means that it is possible that it will never land in stable versions of the browser. It seems unlikely that this is going to be the case for the password import option, considering that it is an essential feature of any browser.
