Keeping track of multiple passwords across different devices can be a challenging task. However, with Apple’s Keychain feature, you can easily sync and share passwords between your iPhone and Mac. In this blog post, we’ll walk you through the steps on how to share a password from iPhone to Mac.
How To Share Password From iPhone To Mac?
Step 1: Ensure Both Devices Are Signed In to iCloud
To start, make sure that both your iPhone and Mac are signed in to the same iCloud account. This is necessary as Keychain syncs across all your devices that are signed in to iCloud.
Step 2: Enable Keychain on Both Devices
Next, you need to make sure that Keychain is enabled on both your iPhone and Mac. On your iPhone, go to Settings > Passwords & Accounts > AutoFill Passwords and toggle on iCloud Keychain. On your Mac, go to System Preferences > Apple ID > iCloud and make sure Keychain is enabled.
Step 3: Save the Password to iCloud Keychain
Once you’ve enabled Keychain on both devices, you can save a password on your iPhone to iCloud Keychain. Open the app or website where you want to save the password, and when prompted to enter the password, tap on “Use Strong Password.” Keychain will generate a strong, secure password for you and offer to save it to your iCloud Keychain. Tap “Save” to save the password.
Step 4: Access the Password on Your Mac
Now that you’ve saved the password to iCloud Keychain on your iPhone, you can access it on your Mac. Open the app or website where you want to use the saved password and click on the password field. You’ll see a prompt to “Use iCloud Keychain password.” Click on this prompt, and your saved password will appear. Click “Fill Password” to automatically enter the password into the field.
Step 5: Update the Password Across Devices
If you ever need to update the password, you can do so on either your iPhone or Mac. Simply go to the app or website where the password is saved, update the password, and save it to iCloud Keychain. The updated password will then sync across all your devices signed in to iCloud.
Sharing passwords between your iPhone and Mac can be a simple process with Apple’s Keychain feature. By enabling Keychain on both devices and saving the password to iCloud Keychain, you can access the password on your Mac and update it across all your devices. This can save you time and make it easier to manage your passwords across multiple devices.
