Microsoft Edge insider builds can now sync passwords and sign-in data for work and school accounts. Azure Active Directory work and school accounts are now supported on the Canary, Dev, and Beta channel preview builds of Microsoft Edge. Currently, favorites, preferences, passwords, and form-fill data sync across instances of the browser. In the future, you'll be able to sync browsing history, installed extensions, and open tabs according to Microsoft's post announcing the new feature.
You can select which specific attributes sync. For example, you could sync your sign-in details to several PCs, but not sync the data that automatically fills in forms to keep your address safe.
Microsoft Edge supports multiple accounts, so you can switch between work, school, and personal accounts. For example, if the browser is logged into your work account and you go to Office.com, it will automatically log you into your work account. Switching over to a personal account on the browser and navigating to the same page will open your personal account's version of Office.com.
