Apple will sync passwords between iOS, iPad, Mac and Windows with its new application

At WWDC 2024, Apple announced the new Passwords app, which expands existing iCloud Keychain features and syncs your passwords across more devices.

Now, with Passwords, Apple is releasing a standalone app to manage passwords and passkeys on more devices, including the Vision Pro as well as Macs, iPhones, and iPads. In addition, synchronization with computers will be provided through the iCloud application for Windows. There is no support for Google's ChromeOS and Android platforms yet.

With Apple's new application, it will be possible to view Wi-Fi passwords in one place and share the passwords in groups with the desired people.

Apple could give its new app an advantage by integrating login information and family sharing setups much more deeply with options like 1Password or Bitwarden. Apple's name may be a reassurance to those who fear the security woes experienced by platforms like LastPass.

Apple puts everything in one place with the Passwords app

For years, Apple users had to retrieve their saved passwords from the Safari preferences window and then from Mac System Preferences or iOS Settings. It will now be possible to access everything, including verification codes and security warnings, in one place with the Passwords application.
