But even if you’re already using it to store logins to apps, Apple Pay info, and Wi-Fi, internet, and other online passwords, you might not be getting all you can out of it. Here’s how to get the most out of Apple’s password manager— and why you don’t want to rely on it for all of your data storage needs.
HOW TO SET UP iCLOUD KEYCHAIN
If you have an iPhone, you have an iCloud account, and if you have an iCloud account, you have iCloud Keychain. If you want to check to see whether it’s turned on, you’ll need to open Settings on an iPhone or iPad (System Preferences on a Mac), tap your name (Apple ID on a Mac), and then tap iCloud. Scroll down to Keychain and make sure the toggle is green (check the box on a Mac).
That’s basically it. You may need to type in your password or passcode, and you’ll want to check your other Apple devices to make sure it’s turned on for each of them as well, but otherwise there’s nothing else to set up. If you don’t see iCloud Keychain, your device might be too old to use it. iCloud Keychain is supported on devices with iOS 7.0.3 and later or OS X Mavericks 10.9 and later.
