Secure your online passwords
Learn to use iCloud Keychain to store and quickly access online accounts
You may well have dozens of usernames and passwords for websites. Remembering them all is a tall order, but it’s vital that you don’t start using the same details for multiple sites; if one website suffers a security breach, your details may end up leaking out online, which could potentially give other people access to your email, social networks, online retail sites, all in one go.
Instead, iCloud Keychain can help you out; it enables you to keep usernames, passwords, and bank card details in an encrypted vault on Apple’s servers. Data stored in your keychain is available on any Mac or iOS device signed in to your iCloud account, which saves you having to remember every last password.
The keychain even works in conjunction with Safari’s AutoFill feature to save you time filling out forms. You don’t even have to come up with complex passwords in the first place because Safari can suggest strong ones when you create an account on a website.
