Mac, iPhone and iPad – How to View and Edit Passwords Saved with Safari

Passwords saved in Safari can be viewed and edited by iPhone, iPad, and Mac users from any device as long as they are associated with the same iCloud account. iPhone and Mac users can manage saved website passwords from any device – laptop or mobile – when they are logged into an iCloud account and using Safari. Synching passwords across devices makes shopping fast and easy with autofill shipping and credit card information. However, it is still a cyber security risk using autofill and storing data in any cloud service.

Mac and iPhone users can download any web browser to use with their Apple devices. For example, you might want to watch Netflix on Chrome because it is glitchy with Safari. However, if you are using Google Chrome web browser to manage passwords, then they are not synched on iCloud. You will have to view your saved passwords in Chrome instead.
