The new version of Microsoft edge has the ability to automatically fill in passwords on its website and has a built-in password generator. When you sign up for a new online account, the system will recommend a strong password. Edge also reminds you that when it discovers that your password has been broken, in addition to these, there are new improvements to the password,Microsoft now offers a new setting option to hide or display the reveal password button.
Microsoft's edge legacy and Internet Explorer allow you to check or verify that your password is correct by clicking on the eye icon in the password input text box on the website, which can be disabled by Group Policy Editor or registry hackers. Now, chromium edge also has a password reveal button to display what you entered in the password field.

Disable show password button when retype password
It should be noted that the eye icon in the password input text box only appears when the password is entered manually, but not when the password is filled automatically.
this function is available in the latest Edge Canary 87. disable the above settings, for example, so that the new Edge does not display the eye icon in the password bar of the Facebook login page.
