Apple passwords

Looking for a secure way to store and manage your passwords on your Apple devices? During their WWDC 2024 event, Apple announced a brand new app called “Passwords.” This built-in app is available for free on iPhone, iPad, and Mac computers running iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS Sequoia (macOS 15).

Passwords acts as a central hub for all your login information. It can securely store your usernames, passwords, credit card details, security codes, and even Wi-Fi passwords. No more scrambling to remember which password goes with which account! The app also integrates with Apple’s existing iCloud Keychain feature, making it even more convenient to auto-fill your login information across different websites and apps.

Passwords goes beyond just storing your passwords. It can also generate strong and unique verification codes for two-factor authentication, adding an extra layer of security to your online accounts. The app also keeps an eye out for potential security risks and will alert you if any of your information might be compromised. Plus, with seamless syncing across your Apple devices, you can access your passwords anytime, anywhere.

The introduction of Passwords is sure to shake up the password management market. While established third-party services like 1Password, Dashlane, and LastPass may offer additional features like dark web monitoring and advanced password generation, Apple’s free and integrated solution might be a tempting option for iPhone and Mac users. With increased competition, users can expect to see more innovation and potentially even lower prices in the password management space in the future.

The decision depends on your individual needs. If you’re an Apple user who values convenience and a tightly integrated experience, then Passwords is definitely worth trying. However, if you need more advanced features or prefer a non-Apple solution, then third-party password managers might still be the way to go.
