At Apple’s annual Worldwide Developers Conference (WWDC24), the company announced the launch of its new, standalone, homegrown, password manager app for iPhone, iPad, Vision Pro, Mac and Windows.

The free app, simply called ‘Passwords’, an extension of Apple’s iCloud Keychain feature, is set to debut with iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15, and is designed to streamline and enhance password management for Apple users.

The ‘Passwords’ app can store and sync passwords, passkeys, and two-factor authentication codes across Apple devices and Windows PCs, organise logins into categories, autofill usernames and passwords, and generate new passwords. Apple’s new ‘Passwords’ app is already being hailed as a rival to password managers like 1Password, LastPass, and Dashlane.
