Edge automatically signs in profile to Windows account

I use Edge profiles to easily switch between several accounts for various customers. Recently, I am no longer able to sign in to the profiles. After I sign out it will automatically sign in to my Windows profile when I open portal.office.com, and I can no longer select the account
How can I prevent this from happening?

Hi @JD81-2016 ,
I think you have logged into Edge with a Windows account.
For this issue, I did some searches, and did not find the relevant settings or group policies for Edge. So I think this issue may be related to windows settings. You can open Windows Settings and select Accounts, then click Email & accounts tab.
On this panel, you can see your Microsoft account. Now you can click on the account and check if you can edit the option of your Microsoft account. If you don't want other apps to use this account, I think you can change the option to Apps need to ask me to use this account. Something like this:

Hi @JD81-2016 ,
Regarding the website you mentioned, I did some tests on it. It will automatically log in to the account that was logged in the last time, but if you click Sign out, when you visit the website again, it will let the user choose the account that needs to log in, or log in with a new account. So I think the reason may be that you did not Sign out of your account, or the cache was not cleared after you signed out? Please check it, and you can try to clear your browser data.
