How to Store Passwords in Safari on an iPhone 5

You may want to learn how to store passwords in Safari on an iPhone 5 if you find the process of entering your username and password to be tedious when you visit your favorite sites. Usernames and complex passwords can be cumbersome to type on the iPhone’s small keyboard, and the convenience of only having to enter this information once can be refreshing. The Safari Web browser on your iPhone can save this information and automatically enter it when you visit sites where you have saved your login credentials.

Our tutorial will show you where to go to enable this feature. You will then be able to return to this menu to access a list of your saved usernames and passwords if you ever decide that you want to delete any of them.

Have you been looking for a way to watch your iTunes content and Netflix on your TV? The Apple TV is a simple, affordable way to do so.

Save Passwords on Your iPhone in the Safari Web Browser

The steps below are going to allow you to save usernames and passwords directly to your device so that Safari will automatically enter them when you visit a site. This information is stored and visible on your device, and can be found by anyone that opens the list of passwords. That is why it is a good idea to also use a passcode if you intend to use this feature, as your iPhone will prompt for the passcode before displaying your saved passwords. It will also prevent anyone with access to your device from viewing accounts for which you have saved your passwords.
