How to Generate Strong Passwords in iOS 13 on iPhone and iPad

Most websites you visit on your iPhone, require you to register with a username and password. Only after this, you can interact, comment, vote, or save an article. First of all, it is impossible to remember passwords for so many apps and websites. Secondly, it is dangerous to use the same password everywhere. This is where iCloud Keychain in iOS 13 comes to rescue. It safely stores all your passcodes and also helps you to automatically generate a strong password on iPhone. Let me show you how to create strong passwords in iOS 13.
