  1. Thanks for the breakdown of Passwords feature on iPhone. I’m wondering if you have suggestion if Apples Password feature is good enough that a third party password tools like 1Password, Bitwarden, Lastpass is not needed?

  2. Your Apple devices store passwords using the iCloud Keychain. This has the advantage of deep integration within iOS, iPadOS, and macOS. It’s secure and reliable and makes it easy to have your passwords on hand on your iPhone, iPad, or Mac. However, third-party options are more feature-rich and available across platforms so you can also access them on Android and Windows along with Apple devices.

    Moreover, most of the good third-party password managers are paid tools. If you don’t mind spending a bit, it’s worthwhile to get a password manager. Otherwise, if you use only Apple devices, the in-built iCloud Keychain password-saving functionality is sufficient and safe.
