I can’t say about others but with so many passwords for various apps and programs, I often tend to forget a good many passwords. But if you’ve all your Safari passwords synced with the iCloud Keychain on your iPhone or iPad, then there’s a simple way to view it. So this one’s surely off the list.
iCloud Keychain keeps all your passwords in sync across all your iOS and Mac devices. But often situations arise where you need these passwords in plaintext for using them somewhere else. God forbid if you’re unable to recall the passwords in such situations. But you need not sweat any longer. Just follow this easy tutorial and you can easily retrieve all your Safari passwords synced with the iCloud Keychain on your iPhone or iPad. Just follow these steps, and you can easily get your passwords:
STEP 1: Open Settings app on your iPhone or iPad.
STEP 2: Scroll down and open Safari
STEP 3: Head over to the General section and tap on Passwords.
STEP 4: Now you’ll be asked to authenticate either using your Touch ID or your passcode based on the Apple device you’re using.
STEP 5: Voila, once you authenticate you’ll be able to see a complete list of your websites and passwords. Just tap on any password to view it.
However, please note that this will only work if you have iCloud Keychain enabled. You can always enable this feature by heading to Settings > iCloud > Keychain. Also please ensure to keep a strong passcode because this can be used by a third person to access your passwords if you happen to have a very weak passcode. So protect yourself from the prying eyes and stay safe. I really hope that Apple will put in a second layer of protection to this as well for further safety like an administrative password.
I hope this helped. For more of these how-to tutorials stay tuned to Technohacker.
