Siri shows you your passwords if you ask



I usually avoid Siri because I find it easier to type and make my way to what I need on my iPhone ($ 1,000 at Cricket Wireless) . With iOS 12 though Siri gets smarter and gave me a very good reason to use Apple's digital assistant. Siri will show me one of the passwords I saved in my iCloud keychain which saves me from remembering my passwords. And I never have to search to dig them out. All I have to do is ask.

Hey, Siri, show me my passwords

Just ask Siri, "Show me my passwords" or "Show me my password for [insert account name here]" and Siri will deliver the goods. For the former, Siri opens the Passwords page in Settings, which lists all the accounts you have stored in your iCloud Keychain. Just tap an account to see your username and password. For the latter, Siri will take you directly to the account page under Settings, which displays your login details for the account you requested.

Do not worry, in both cases you will need to prove your identity via Face ID, Touch ID or your passcode before your password is scammed.

Show passwords without Siri

If you do not want to use Siri to find a password, you can go to your iCloud Keychain page by going to Settings> Passwords and accounts> Website and app passwords.

Simple and Secure

Saving your passwords to your iCloud keychain is more secure than storing them in the cloud or on your laptop in an unsecured location. And with Siri being able to help them retrieve them, they're much more accessible. It's even harder to crack your passwords if you have iOS 12 create strong passwords for your accounts .

As a reminder, iOS 12 is currently available in beta. It is likely that features will change until the release in the fall, including strong password generation. We will update this article as needed until then.
