Every time you log into a new website or account on your iPhone, it will ask you if you want to save the password for that particular website.All of these passwords are associated with your Apple ID and can be viewed, edited, and deleted in your iPhone's settings.

Next, let's take a look at how you should manage all the saved passwords on your iPhone:

How to view saved passwords

It's easy for most people to forget passwords, especially when autofill keeps filling them out for you.But all saved passwords are available in the iPhone's settings whenever you want to see them.Here's what you need to do to view all saved passwords:

1. Open Settings and go to Password.


2. You will have to enter your passcode to see all your passcodes, or you can use Face ID or Touch ID.

3. Once you're in, you'll see all the passwords associated with your Apple ID, sorted alphabetically.Scroll down and click on the account or website for which you want to view passwords.In addition to usernames and passwords, your iPhone will also show you a security suggestion if you reuse your password on multiple websites.


4. Just click on the hidden password of the account to view and copy it.

Alternatively, you can instruct Siri to show your saved passwords with a simple command: "Hey Siri, show my passwords." Just make sure to enable Siri on your iOS device first.

How to edit saved passwords

Editing passwords is as easy as viewing them.You can edit your password directly from the settings or from the website where you want to change your password.In the latter case, your device will ask you if you want to update the new password on your Apple ID, so you don't have to do it yourself.Follow the steps below to edit saved passwords:

1. Open Settings and go to Password.


2. Enter your passcode or use Face ID or Touch ID to gain access.

3. Click on the account for which you want to edit the password.


4. Select Edit.


5. Enter your new password and click "Done".Your new password is automatically saved.

You can also use the "Change Password on Website" option under "Account Options", however, this tends to cost you more time.

How to delete saved passwords

Every time you log into a website, your device will prompt you to save your password.The autofill option is one of the most convenient, and who would say no?Apart from that, there are many other ways to save passcodes on iPhone.In a short period of time, you'll end up with a mess of accounts and passwords that you probably won't even use.If you want to get rid of them, here's how:

1. Go to Passwords in Settings and select the account whose password you want to remove.


2. Tap Remove Password at the bottom of the screen.


3. Click Delete again in the prompt that appears and the account and all its details will disappear automatically.

It's important to note, though, that removing your password is one way to keep your information more secure.However, you should be well aware that once the data is deleted, it cannot be recovered, so you cannot view the password again.

Manage all your saved passwords in the Settings app

The AutoFill feature on iPhone is very handy and it works for all accounts saved in iPhone settings.You can always choose to use your iPhone's strong passcode option without worrying about forgetting them because they're always available for you to see.If you still find these passwords inconvenient, the Settings app also allows you to change or delete saved passwords with a few quick clicks.
