How Does Safari’s Login Feature Work?

How Does Safari’s Login Feature Work?

Question

Can you talk a bit about Safari offering to supply a username and password? I’ve wondered about that but know nothing about how it would work. Does Safari automatically remember it? Does my iPhone know them?

Answer

When you log into a website, Safari will ask you if you want to save your login and password. It can also save your contact information and credit cards.

You can use iCloud’s Keychain Access to sync all of the data between your iOS devices (iPhone, iPad, etc.)

Once you have a login and password saved you can view your passwords by going to Safari => Preferences. From here you can add new logins and check a box to “AutoFill user names and passwords” when visiting a site.

If you only need to store passwords this can be a great solution.

If you want all the above and the ability to store additional items like identities, credit cards, driver’s licenses, social security cards, memberships, bank accounts, wireless routers, software licenses, servers, email accounts, you might want to try something like 1Password by Agile Bits. This software also boosts password generation, vulnerability reports, and much more.
