How to Find and Manage Saved Passwords on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

You can store your passwords on the iCloud Keychain to log in with your FaceID or TouchID on websites and apps. You can access iCloud Keychain on your Apple devices like iPhone, iPad, and Mac. But what if you want to manage saved passwords on your iPhone or iPad?

Apple asks users to use a third-party password manager alongside Keychain. Yet, if you want to view and manage saved passwords on iPhone, iPad, or Mac, here’s how you can do it.

How to Find Saved Passwords on your iPhone and iPad

Finding and managing saved passwords on your iPhone and iPad is the same. Follow these steps to find and manage your saved passwords.

  1. Open Settings.
  2. Scroll down and tap Passwords (iOS 14 and above). If you’re on iOS 13, tap Passwords & Accounts and Websites & App Passwords.
  3. It’ll ask you for FaceID or TouchID. Once authorized, you’ll see your Saved Passwords.

You can then select any app or website to copy the details or manage them. You can also Airdrop them to your devices or someone else.

How to Find and Manage Your Saved Passwords on Mac

iCloud Keychain syncs your passwords across all of your devices, and you can access them anywhere. As a result, they’re also available on your Mac. Here’s how to find them.

  1. Click on the Apple menu  and System Preferences.
  2. Select Passwords.
    Go to System Preferences and select Passwords in Mac
  3. Authorize it with TouchID or enter your user account password. Once authorized, you’ll have access to all your synced passwords.

You can choose any website and click Edit to make changes. You’ll see all of your synced passwords here but not iPhone or iPad apps’ passwords.

View Saved Passwords Using Siri on iPhone, iPad, and Mac

If you don’t want to go through the hassle of going into Settings or System Preferences, you can use Siri instead. In that case, follow these instructions to view Saved Passwords using Siri.

  1. Summon Siri using the “Hey Siri” hotword. You can also long-press the power or home button on iPhone and iPad and press the Siri icon on the Menu or Touch bar on a Mac.
  2. Ask Siri, “Show all my passwords.” You can also ask for specific website/app passwords like “Show my Facebook Password.”
  3. You’ll need to authenticate with your FaceID, TouchID, or password to access the password(s).

Once authorized, you can view, edit, and share the credentials from your device.

Use iOS Security Recommendations in Passwords

With iOS 14, iPadOS 14, and macOS Big Sur, Apple improved password monitoring drastically. It’ll let you know if your password got compromised, reused, or weak to improve the security of your accounts.

If you find such passwords, you can use the Sign in with Apple feature or set a better password. We hope this article answers your question. If you still have any queries and suggestions, you can leave them in the comments below.
