iCloud Key­chain on iOS de­vices

Mac Format - - ICLOUD -

You should pro­tect your iPhone, and hence your key­chain, with a pass­code. This code will be needed to ac­cess your iPhone, and to man­age in­for­ma­tion in iCloud Key­chain. Tap Set­tings > Touch ID & Pass­code > Turn Pass­code On. En­ter a four-digit code, then re­peat it to ver­ify. Be­low that, Re­quire Pass­code sets a du­ra­tion be­fore your pass­code is re­quired af­ter the iPhone locks (Set­tings > Gen­eral > Auto-Lock) or you put it to sleep.

Key­chain re­quires man­ual ac­ti­va­tion. Tap Set­tings > iCloud > Key­chain and switch on iCloud Key­chain. You'll be asked for your Ap­ple ID. If you’ve al­ready set up Key­chain on another de­vice linked to the same iCloud ac­count, you’ll need to ap­prove your iPhone from there, or pro­vide the se­cu­rity code you set dur­ing that process. If you opt to ap­prove ac­cess to your key­chain us­ing another de­vice, you’ll re­ceive a no­ti­fi­ca­tion on it.

To save pass­words en­sure Set­tings > Sa­fari > Pass­words & Aut­oFill > Names and Pass­words is on. In Sa­fari, go to a web page that re­quires a user ID and pass­word. Sub­mit yours. You’re given the op­tion to save them, but you can opt not to. With iCloud Key­chain en­abled, the cre­den­tials are synced to your au­tho­rised de­vices and you won’t have to type them. (When cre­at­ing an ac­count, ‘Sug­gest pass­word’ ap­pears above the key­board.)
