On the Chromium version of Microsoft Edge, you can use multiple profiles. A profile allows you to share the web browser with other users without them interfering with your information. Every profile you add keeps all the data separate, such as history, favorites, passwords, extensions, and other settings.
Also, support for profiles is a handy feature when you want to use different Microsoft accounts, and you want to keep your things, such as personal and work separate. The only caveat about profiles is that when you add a new one, it uses a default name, and if you want a more personal experience, it’s possible to change from the settings page.
