Your iPhone is able to save passwords that you enter and for new accounts that you create in the Safari browser. Use these steps to save passwords on your iPhone.
- Open Settings.
- Choose Passwords & Accounts.
- Select Autofill Passwords.
- Tap the Autofill Passwords button to turn it on.
We continue below with additional information and pictures for each of these steps.
If you practice good password security then you should be using a different password for every account that you have.
While this is ideal for keeping your information safe, it also makes it a little tougher to remember all of those passwords.
Fortunately your iPhone has a feature called Autofill that will let you save passwords that you use and create in the Safari Web browser.
How to Save Passwords on an iPhone (Guide with Pictures)
The steps in this article were performed on an iPhone 11 in iOS 13.6.1. Note that these steps will only work for passwords in the Safari browser. If you are using a different browser like Chrome or Firefox then you will need to set up the password saving features in those browsers separately.
Step 1: Open the Settings app.
Step 2: Choose the Passwords & Accounts option.
Step 3: Touch the Autofill Passwords option at the top of the screen.
Step 3: Tap the button to the right of Autofill Passwords to turn it on.
Now when you enter a password for a site in Safari you will be given a prompt to save that password.
Additionally, if you create new accounts in Safari the browser will offer a strong password that you can use, but you are still able to enter your own password if you prefer.
While these passwords are saved to your iPhone, you may also wish to use the iCloud keychain to save them to your iCloud account for use on other devices as well.
You can enable keychain by going to Settings > Apple ID > iCloud > Keychain and enabling the iCloud Keychain option.
