These stored passwords can be accessed by anyone that is able to authenticate on your iPhone with the Face ID or Touch ID on the device. If you use Touch ID or Face ID and have set them up for other people on your device, be aware of the sort of access they will have to your information.

Your iCloud keychain is frequently syncing with your other iOS devices that use the same Apple ID. You are typically given the option to update saved passwords in the keychain if you change them on one of your devices.

There are other password managers, like LastPass or 1password, that can serve a similar function. It’s worth checking out if you don’t like iCloud keychain or often encounter problems with it.
