How to view a saved password in safari on iphone and ipad.

If you've forgotten a website password but have saved it before using Safari on your iPhone or iPad, you can easily retrieve it. Here's how.

It can be frustrating when you need to log into a site on a different device or browser but you’ve lost the password. Luckily, if you've previously stored that password using Safari on iPhone or iPad , you can easily retrieve it. Here’s how.

First, launch "Settings," which can usually be found on the first page of your Home screen or on your Dock.

Open Settings on iPhone

Scroll down the list of Settings options until you see "Passwords & Accounts." Tap it.

Tap Passwords & Accounts in Settings on iPhone

In the "Passwords & Accounts" section, tap "Website & App Passwords."

Tap Website & App Passwords in Settings on iPhone

After you pass authentication (using Touch ID, Face ID, or your passcode), you will see a list of saved account information organized alphabetically by website name. Scroll through or use the search bar until you find the entry with the password you need. Tap it.

Tap an account name to see a saved Safari password in Settings on iPhone

On the next screen, you will see account info in detail, including the username and the password.

Thanks to iCloud Keychain, you can save browser username and password combinations.

  • Quick steps

Tools and Requirements

Step by step guide to using the safari password manager, final thoughts.

You probably already know about iCloud if you're using at least one Apple device. The cloud storage and synchronization service allows it to store and access content across multiple devices, including Mac, iPhone, iPad, and more.  These include files and information like documents, photos, music, video, and contacts.

Apple's iCloud service is also at the heart of the iCloud Keychain , where you can store website usernames/passwords, among other items. In this how-to, we're concentrating on how to add, edit, and delete Safari password content. Similar tools are available on other browsers like Microsoft Edge and Mozilla Firefox . 

  • You should also consider the best browsers and best secure browsers .  

Steps for saving, viewing and managing passwords

  • Before you can save any username/password combinations, you must first be sure to have an Apple ID or iCloud account.
  • From there, you can begin adding usernames and passwords for websites you frequent. 
  • You can also take advantage of Apple's new passkey feature. 
  • Safari is only available on Apple devices such as Mac, iPhone, and iPad. 

1. Go into the manager

To get started, you must first create an Apple ID . The username/password combinate is usable across all Apple devices to log into iCloud.com. You can proceed once you have an Apple ID and are logged into your device. 

On Mac, the Safari password manager is located by choosing Safari on the menu bar at the top left of your Mac. From there, click Settings from the pull-down menu. 

Next, click on the Passwords option at the top. Input your password as needed. 

2. Adjust existing password settings

You can adjust password information in the iCloud Keychain directly from Safari. To get started, go into the Passwords section of Mac Settings (see above) and log in as necessary. Then, use the search box on the left side of the display to find the password information you wish to change. Click Edit . 

You can change the username and password for a website and add notes when applicable. After making a change, click Save . 

Click Delete Password to delete the password information. 

Thanks to iCloud, any changes you make here will also be reflected in other Apple devices that use your Apple ID. 

4. Using Autofill in Safari

With AutoFill, you can fill in your previously saved usernames and website passwords. The tool is also a great way to add a new username/password combination for the first time and to create a strong password. 

You will see AutoFill pop up when a website asks you to create a password.

You will see an Autofill prompt In Safari when it's time to use or create a password. 

Click the AutoFill Key button, then choose Suggest New Password . For optimal security, you should use the suggested strong password. However, if you choose not to use the suggested password, you can easily select the password field, click “ Don’t Use ,” and enter your preferred password.

From there, enter the rest of the required information to create the website account.

Why use a separate password manager instead of a browser?

While most web browsers have their own password management feature, except for Safari which incorporates it into iCloud Keychain, in-browser password managers have limitations. They can only be used with one specific browser and cannot be accessed from other browsers. On the other hand, standalone password managers are compatible with any browser on your device, making them a more versatile option. Moreover, it is important to consider security when choosing a password manager. Browsers are not updated as frequently as standalone password managers, which can pose a security risk in case of a breach.

Does Safari have a built-in VPN?

Like many other browsers, Safari does not come with a pre-installed VPN. However, several reliable third-party VPNs like ExpressVPN, NordVPN, and SurfShark can easily be integrated with Safari. With a VPN, you can significantly boost the security and privacy of your online activities.

Are browser password managers safe?

To guarantee the safety of your passwords, using browser password managers like Safari with encryption is a great first step. However, there are additional measures you can take to further enhance your protection. It is highly recommended to create a strong and secure master password. The newest optional feature in Microsoft Edge mandates that you input your master password before making any changes to the password manager, thereby adding an extra layer of security. Regularly backing up your password manager is also a wise precaution in case of loss or theft. Another crucial step is creating a Firefox profile, allowing content synchronization across devices. This ensures that any changes made on your computer are reflected on your mobile device and vice versa.

What is iCloud Keychain?

iCloud Keychain is a highly reliable password manager that securely stores sensitive information such as passwords and credit card details in an online vault as part of Apple’s iCloud suite of services. Users can easily access their stored data by simply logging in to the same iCloud account on any Apple device. Thanks to the end-to-end encryption feature, user data is protected and can only be accessed by the user, even in the unlikely event of an iCloud account breach. Furthermore, the two-factor authentication feature provides an extra layer of security to user accounts, ensuring that they remain safe and secure at all times.

What are Apple Passkeys?

Apple Passkeys hope to eliminate the need for passwords eventually. This authentication method adheres to industry standards and guarantees improved security features while streamlining the login experience.

Passkeys create a unique cryptographic key pair for every website or application you use. The website or app stores the public key while the private one remains on your device. When you log in, your device produces a cryptographic signature using the private key. The website or application can then authenticate your identity by verifying this signature. With Passkeys, you can rest assured that your online security is in good hands.

Like passwords, passkeys are kept in Apple's iCloud Keychain. 

The built-in Safari password manager, part of the iCloud Keychain, makes tracking website usernames and passwords easier. Better still, those items carry over to other Apple devices, including iPhone and iPad. In the coming years, Apple hopes to eliminate the need for passwords and replace them with more secure passkeys. However, username and password combinations remain the most popular choice for website authentication.

How to View Saved Passwords in Safari on Mac

Isaac Norman

If you use Safari as your primary web browser, you probably also use it to store your usernames, passwords, and other credentials. Thanks to Apple’s Keychain , those credentials are safely stored and shared across your devices via iCloud. The same applies to Safari itself, which helps store your passwords and create highly secure ones. So, what happens if you want to view saved passwords in Safari on your Mac?

Luckily for us, this web browser lets you access and view the passwords you saved. It even allows you to update or delete them manually. This comes in handy on numerous occasions, so let’s talk about how to view saved passwords in Safari on your Mac.

How to View Saved Passwords in Safari on Your Mac

Accessing your passwords and credentials on Safari is done on the browser itself.

1. Launch Safari by clicking on its icon in your Dock (if it’s visible there). If you can’t find it, launch Spotlight Search by pressing the Command + Space keyboard shortcut. Type in “Safari,” then press Enter to launch the application.

3. Using the newly opened Preferences window, select the “Passwords” tab. As you can imagine, Safari won’t let you reveal your sensitive data that easily. So depending on the type of security measures you’ve set up, you’ll need to provide your password or identify yourself via Touch ID.

On the left, you can identify the website associated with your username and password. And on the right, you will see your username and then your password. At first, your passwords are shown as dots.

2. Click on “Add” to add a new entry manually. You will need to input a website URL as well as your credentials. Once done, select “Add Password” to let Safari auto-fill that information the next time you need to use it. And if you select an entry and click on “Remove,” you’ll instruct Safari to forget your credentials.

How to View Saved Passwords in Safari on Mac

If you save passwords with Safari on Mac, you can easily go back and view those saved passwords. This is fantastic if you’ve lost a login, or perhaps if you forgot the password to one of your online accounts.

As long as you previously signed in to your account from Safari on Mac, iPhone, or iPad, you may be able to see the exact password you used thanks to iCloud Keychain.

Safari has a built-in password management solution that fills out website usernames and passwords for you. Every time you log in to a website in Safari for the first time, the browser will ask you if you want to save the password. When you click “Save Password”, Safari keeps a record of this data so that you don’t have to type in these details the next time you log in. If you’ve been using this feature regularly, you could potentially forget your password. Thankfully, you can recover the password pretty quickly even if you lose it. Let’s review how to see and reveal a saved password directly in Safari for Mac.

How to Find Saved Passwords in Safari for Mac

Viewing all the passwords you’ve entered while browsing in Safari is a pretty simple and straightforward procedure. Just follow the steps below to get started.

How to View Saved Passwords in Safari on Mac

Pretty useful, right? Viewing saved passwords in Safari on MacOS is incredibly convenient, for many obvious reasons.

Keep in mind that you will only be able to find this lost password in Safari if you chose to “save password” when you typed in your login credentials on the particular website. You can also manually add account information to Safari for websites in the same menu as a one-time thing and you don’t have to remember your password again.

There’s one other way to view all your saved passwords in Safari and that’s using Keychain Access . Here, you’ll see password information for all the sign-ins you’ve made from your Mac and not just Safari. However, if you don’t use iCloud Keychain and have changed the password for any of your accounts from another device, this information that’s stored on your Mac will be outdated and can no longer be used unless you update it manually.

All the passwords you enter in Safari are securely stored in the keychain. Furthermore,  all the web passwords that Safari save to Keychain  will be synced across all your other Apple devices with the help of iCloud, meaning all of your iPhone, iPad, and Mac hardware will have access to the keychain saved data.

Obviously this covers the Mac, but you can see accounts and view passwords on iPhone and iPad with Keychain too .

Were you able to view all the saved passwords in Safari and regain access to the website you needed to? Were you able to use this method to recover your forgotten password? If not, did you find any other solution? What are your overall thoughts on Safari’s built-in password manager? Do share your valuable opinions and experience below.

How to find saved passwords and credit cards on your iPhone in iOS 17

How to find your passwords and credit cards on iOS 17!

Tap Saved Credit Cards Use Face ID or Touch ID to verify your identity (or your four-digit code) Select the credit card you want to view

While iOS's iCloud Keychain and Passwords features are fantastic when it comes to auto-filling information on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac, both also serve as a very handy repository for a lot of your information. 

For instance, if you're trying to buy something and you don't have the option to use autofill on iOS, you can dive into your settings to find your stored passwords, credit card information, and more. This is handy for making payments over the phone, or double-checking the password of an account before you try to log in somewhere new. Given how sensitive all this information is, it's stored safely behind iPhone's Touch ID or Face ID security measures, meaning you're the only person who can access it. 

So how do you find your passwords and credit card information on your iPhone? Luckily, iOS 17 features a dedicated section for your passwords, while autofill information for credit cards can easily be found in your Safari settings, here's everything you need to know. 

How to find passwords on iPhone

The iOS Settings app includes a standalone Passwords section which lists all of your saved accounts, usernames, and passwords in one place. Not only does it show you what these passwords are, but it can even make security recommendations based on whether Apple has detected compromised passwords in data breaches or leaks. Here's how to find passwords on iPhone:

  • Open the Settings app
  • Scroll down and tap Passwords
  • Verify your identity with Face ID or Touch ID
  • Scroll down and tap the website name that you want the password for
  • Tap the Password tab to reveal the password
  • If you need to paste it somewhere, tap Copy

How to set up AutoFill on iPhone

If you aren't using it already, you can enable AutoFill within Safari, which makes it easier to enter information such as your name, address, and more. 

  • Scroll down and tap Safari
  • Under the General section tap AutoFill
  • Tap My Info
  • Select your name from your contacts list

How to find credit card information on iPhone

Just like your passwords, you can find your stored credit card information on your iPhone. This can be handy if you're making a payment over the phone, or entering your details for the first time without AutoFill assistance. Here's how to find it:

  • Tap Saved Credit Cards
  • Use Face ID or Touch ID to verify your identity (or your four-digit code)
  • Select the credit card you want to view

Your iPhone will then show you your card's name, number, expiry, security code, and a brief description. All of this information can be edited by pressing edit in the top right-hand corner.

Mac: How to view and edit passwords saved with Safari

Avatar for Michael Potuck

Have you gotten used to creating and saving passwords with the built-in Safari AutoFill feature on Mac, but aren’t sure where they are stored? Follow along for how to view and edit saved passwords on your Mac.

It’s become easy to use saved passwords in Safari to log in to websites without having to manually type in your credentials. However, sometimes you might need to view your passwords, or you might want to edit or remove old credentials.

  • Open Safari
  • Click Safari →  Preferences…

How to View Saved Passwords on Mac Safari

Avatar photo

While passwords are vital for many websites, remembering dozens of passwords is nearly impossible. Luckily, you can rely on Safari to save your passwords for you and autofill them on your next login. But how do you view these saved passwords? 

see saved passwords safari

Working in a computer repair store, I’m always helping my customers recover passwords from their web browsers. It seems like almost every day, someone is forgetting something. So, to help those who want to recover their own passwords, I’ve put together a few different options.

If you want to view saved passwords on Safari on your Mac, at least one of these methods will work for you. Let’s get into it!

Table of Contents

Key Takeaways

Option 1: view passwords in system settings, option 2: view passwords in safari, option 3: using siri, alternative: using a password manager, final thoughts.

  • Viewing your saved passwords on Safari on Mac is simple , and you can do it in a few quick steps.
  • While it is an easy process, you should only save passwords for less sensitive accounts , and make sure to monitor your logins in the event of a data breach or compromise.
  • Access your Saved passwords via System Settings, Safari, or Siri . Apple allows for easy access (for you! Not others) to any passwords that you have saved on your device.
  • If you want a more robust solution to remember your login info for different websites, Setapp also has an application called Secrets that works as a highly secure password manager.

Personally, I have too many passwords to keep track of, and I could never remember them all. Plus, it is extremely unsafe to use the same password for multiple items. 

Relying on Safari to save your passwords for you is a good alternative. This way, they are all located in one central place, and are protected by FaceID, TouchID, and the Mac’s passcode. Passwords that are saved are also able to be safer because they can be longer, more complicated, and not related to personal information or patterns.

However, you should only save passwords for your less sensitive accounts, and remember to change them every now and then to prevent a worst-case scenario, like a hacked account or data breach. With that in mind, let’s look at the easiest way to view saved passwords on Safari.

When you need to view the passwords that are saved, Apple makes them easily accessible (but don’t worry, it’s only easy for you! ). The first option is to view passwords that you have saved in the System Settings of your Mac, iPhone, or iPad. 

On your Mac, Click the Apple Menu and hit System Settings .

see saved passwords safari

In System Settings , navigate to Passwords on the left. 

Once you enter your password, you will be able to view Usernames and Passwords in an alphabetical list, airdrop passwords, change passwords on websites, delete the saved password, and set up verification codes. 

see saved passwords safari

Another way to view your saved passwords is in the Safari application. 

With Safari open, click Safari on the menu bar at the top of your screen. Then hit Settings from the drop-down.  

see saved passwords safari

In Settings , navigate to Passwords on the top. Enter your password or Touch ID to unlock your passwords.

see saved passwords safari

In Safari, you have the same abilities as you do in the system settings. You are able to view the passwords, airdrop passwords, change passwords on websites, delete the saved password, or change the password on the associated website. 

You’re probably familiar with Siri from using it on the iPhone. But, did you know it is also an extremely easy way to find the password for a particular website or application? 

Activate Siri on your Mac or iPhone by saying “Hey Siri” and ask “Show me my password for _____ website”. 

If “Hey Siri” doesn’t work or you have it turned off, you can also activate Siri using the button in the menu bar as shown. 

see saved passwords safari

Once Siri accesses your password, you will be asked to enter your password or TouchID and then will automatically be shown the password that you are looking for.

An additional option to store and save your passwords is to use Setapp’s Secrets application. Secrets uses encryption to save your passwords. This allows you to access your passwords with one passphrase and allows you to set up a passkey that is able to be used if you forget your password for the application. 

The application also creates strong passwords for you to use on websites. Similar to Apple, Secrets can autofill on Safari, but it can also autofill on Chrome. It also allows for iCloud Sync.

After you load the app for the first time and log in, you can create a new credential by hitting the Plus(+) sign.

see saved passwords safari

Since Secrets integrates with Safari, you don’t need to waste time switching between applications when you need to access one of your passwords. Overall, it makes a good addition to your Mac’s operating security.

This article provided you with a few different ways to manage your passwords on your Mac for all different websites and applications. These methods require no additional applications to be downloaded on your Mac and use only the pre-installed abilities of the Apple macOS, iPhone, and/or iPad. 

If you don’t want to trust Safari with your passwords, or if you want to generate more secure login credentials automatically, Secrets is a good option. It works as a password manager for Mac and integrates with your favorite browsers for added security.

What is your favorite way to manage your passwords on your Mac? Have you used all of these methods before (I know the Siri method was a surprise for me!)? Let us know in the comments below.

How To Save Passwords On iPhone

How to save passwords on an iphone, drawbacks of saving passwords on an iphone, when to use a password manager, frequently asked questions (faqs).

Account creation with a username and password has become an inescapable part of online life. And keeping all of those passwords safe and memorized can be a pain without a little help. Fortunately, iOS comes with built-in password saving features for iPhones and iPads. This guide can help you save login information and passwords on your iPhone and ease the burden of remembering a ludicrous amount of logins.

It seems like every website now requires users to create a unique username and password to access content and services. Those who choose to follow recommended security protocols (i.e., not using the same username and password for everything) often find it difficult or impossible to remember all of their secure credentials. We all know that keeping an unprotected written or electronic record of your account information undermines their security, so how can users keep their passwords safe without constantly losing them?

For Apple customers, the solution to this dilemma lies in the integrated iCloud Keychain and AutoFill features programmed into most Apple products. These features can save usernames and passwords from any site, store them in a central location, fill the login boxes for you when you return to the site and share the logins among all of your Apple devices.

Using Safari

see saved passwords safari

Next, turn on the AutoFill for passwords and logins by going to Settings > Passwords > Password Options > AutoFill, and toggle the switch. AutoFill is now turned on for whichever browsers you choose to authorize. You can see what browsers and applications you have authorized by checking the list beneath the AutoFill toggle.

see saved passwords safari

You are now ready to save passwords and use AutoFill in Safari. Open a Safari browser, navigate to a site and enter your username and password. When you press the login button, your device will automatically prompt you to save that password. You can choose to:

Save Password: Your login will be stored and will autofill on your next visit to the site. Never for This Website: Your login will not be saved and the device will not prompt you again for this site. Not Now: Your login will not be saved but the device will prompt you again on your next login.

see saved passwords safari

Using iCloud Keychain

Enabling iCloud Keychain will allow you to share your login information among your various Apple products. You won’t have to save a login individually on each device anymore, which can help you to never slow down looking for your handwritten notes ever again.

To activate iCloud Keychain, go to Settings > Your Apple ID > iCloud > Passwords and Keychain. Toggle the switch to sync your phone with your other devices, allowing you to start using Keychain.

Managing Saved Passwords

Once the login information has been saved, it can be managed under the Passwords section of the Settings menu.

see saved passwords safari

Using Strong Suggested Passwords

For certain websites, your iPhone may automatically suggest a strong password for you to use. You can select either “Use Strong Password” or “Choose My Own Password” when prompted.

see saved passwords safari

While using your Apple product’s built-in password-saving features is easy, convenient and free, there are a few drawbacks when it comes to security and function.

Relatively Easy To Access

Your device will likely require you to re-enter your PIN or Apple ID password (or use Touch/Face ID) to access your device’s stored passwords. That being said, if someone has already had or recently gained access to your device, they will also be able to access your passwords in the same manner. Other password manager applications have a “master password” feature to add an additional layer of separate security designed to keep your data more secure.

Difficult or Impossible To Use With Non-Apple Products

iCloud Keychain is extremely convenient for those loyal to Apple across devices. Those who may have Android or PC devices will find that iCloud Keychain may not be usable on their device or may require a downloadable app or browser extension.

Changing a Weak Password

When iCloud Keychain detects a weak, compromised or reused password, it will send you a security alert with the option to change that password. While some password managers can help you change the password directly through the app, iCloud Keychain redirects the user into a Safari WebView window to change the password, which is somewhat less convenient.

Limited Features

iCloud Keychain does not offer as many additional features as some third-party password managers on the market. Third-party password managers may include added features such as hardware security keys, one-time passwords, secure vaults for a wider variety of data and documents, availability of all app functions on every device and the ability to share passwords with other users.

A third-party password manager may be useful if you’re seeking extra security, a wider variety of features, more secure storage categories and protection on non-Apple devices. Quite a few great options available include Norton Password Manager and NordPass. Some of the best password managers that are compatible with iPhone are Dashlane, LastPass,1Password and Keeper.

Bottom Line

iCloud Keychain is a good option for storing passwords on Apple devices in a relatively secure fashion. It can help users choose strong passwords and make them easily accessible with the AutoFill feature. It is a great, free service for Apple loyalists who don’t feel like the added benefits of a third-party password manager are necessary for their needs. We would recommend choosing another password manager if you are interested in the added security and additional features other developers may have to offer, or if you own and regularly use non-Apple devices.

Canadian specific editing conducted by Anna Rey.

Is Apple Keychain a good password manager?

Overall, yes, iCloud Keychain is a free, functional and very convenient password manager, particularly for users who exclusively use Apple products.

How do I get my iPhone to remember passwords?

iCloud Keychain and AutoFill will need to be turned on within the Settings menu in order to access these features. To activate iCloud Keychain, go to Settings > Your Apple ID > iCloud > Passwords and Keychain. Toggle the switch to start using Keychain. Next, turn on the AutoFill for passwords and logins by going to Settings > Passwords > Password Options > AutoFill, and toggle the switch.

View the Stored Passwords : Once authenticated, users will be presented with a list of websites and corresponding usernames for which passwords are saved in Safari. This comprehensive list offers a clear overview of the stored credentials, allowing users to identify and review specific passwords as needed.

Reveal Passwords : To view the passwords associated with the listed websites, users can select individual entries and choose to reveal the stored passwords. Safari employs a secure approach, requiring user authentication once again to reveal the obscured passwords, ensuring that sensitive information remains protected.

By following these steps, users can seamlessly view the passwords saved within Safari, gaining valuable insight into their stored credentials. This process empowers users to review and access their passwords with ease, offering a transparent view of the login credentials associated with various websites and online services.

This process enables users to declutter their password list, ensuring that only relevant and current login information is retained. By removing unnecessary passwords, users can streamline their password management experience and maintain a concise list of stored credentials.

Editing Saved Passwords

Safari also provides users with the capability to edit saved passwords, offering flexibility and control over their stored credentials. This feature allows individuals to update or modify existing login information, ensuring that their stored passwords remain accurate and up to date.

Adding New Passwords

In addition to managing existing passwords, Safari facilitates the seamless addition of new passwords to the stored credentials list. When users create accounts or update their login information for various websites, Safari offers a straightforward method to save and manage these new passwords. This functionality ensures that users can effortlessly integrate new credentials into their password management system, maintaining a comprehensive and up-to-date record of their login information.

Utilizing Password AutoFill

Learn what to do if you have issues using iCloud Bookmarks or Reading List. For example, if you need to access a bookmark that you accidentally deleted or make changes in your web browser that don’t update on your other devices, we can help.

Make sure your date and time settings on your iOS device or Mac are correct. You can easily fix issues caused by incorrect date and time settings by entering the right information.

To help make sure that you don't lose important information, make copies of your Bookmarks .

If your bookmarks don't display in the same order across all of your devices, check how many bookmarks are in the folder. If the folder contains more than 500 bookmarks, the order of bookmarks might not be the same on all devices.

If you need to access a bookmark that you deleted within the last 30 days, you can recover it from iCloud.com . Click Settings, and under Advanced, click Restore Bookmarks.
