Windows password to see saved passwords?

I went to go check a password for a site and when I tried to bring it up and look at it I was asked for my windows password. Why would I have to put a windows password into a Brave function to access the brave function?

I really need an answer to why this is happening and how to keep Microsoft out of Brave.
Thank you

Brave is up to date

Version 1.18.77 Chromium: 87.0.4280.101 (Official Build) (64-bit)
