iOS12 public beta

When Apple introduced Autofill and Saved Password features in iOS 7, it made things a lot easier for iPhone users. These features eliminated the need to enter a password everytime you visit a website. The autofill feature made it easy to fill forms online as your basic details such as name and email address are filled automatically from the saved iPhone passwords. As for management, Apple’s iCloud Keychain moved the game one notch up as you can save your passwords, credit card details, etc safely if you are browsing the internet on Safari.

If you have saved a password or card details on your MacBook in Safari via iCloud keychain, you can access the same password on your iPhone as well. This syncing facility on iOS and MacOS has further contributed to the success of iCloud Keychain.

Passwords saved in iCloud Keychain could be used on websites that offer autofill feature. In case, you are not able to use the autofill on a website (some websites do not support autofill due to security concerns), you can still access your saved credit cards and passwords by visiting the Settings app on your iPhone.

With below-given instructions, you can view saved passwords in iPhone running iOS 12.

The iCloud Keychain also allows you to save your credit card details so that you don’t have to look up your card everytime you are shopping online. You can view the information of saved cards in iPhone easily if the autofill function is not working on a website in safari due to some reasons.

Conclusion

Apple has made a massive improvement in how passwords and credit cards details are stored and managed on different devices. iCloud Keychain uses 256-bit AES encryption which is military grade encryption technique that does not allow (not even Apple) to sneak peak at your saved items.

You can also use third-party iPhone password manager apps if you are not satisfied with iCloud Keychain.
