Apple will launch a password manager app

Apple is gearing up to introduce a new app called Passwords, designed to streamline login management across devices, according to a Bloomberg report. The app is expected to be unveiled at WWDC (Apple’s Worldwide Developers Conference) next week.

While Apple already offers iCloud Keychain for saving passwords on iPhones, iPads, and Vision Pros, Passwords promises a more robust solution.  Bloomberg suggests the app will not only sync passwords seamlessly but also categorize them (accounts, Wi-Fi networks, passkeys) for easier organization.  Intriguingly, the report indicates Windows compatibility for Passwords, with no mention of Android support at this time.

Expected to debut with iOS 18, iPadOS 18, and macOS 15, Passwords will compete with established password managers like LastPass and 1Password. Bloomberg highlights features like password generation, secure storage, and autofill functionality for usernames and passwords. The app will also reportedly offer the ability to create two-factor authentication codes, similar to Google Authenticator.

WWDC, scheduled for June 10th, promises a flurry of exciting announcements from Apple.  In addition to Passwords, rumours swirl about AI-powered features for iPhone in iOS 18 and a significant overhaul for Siri, Apple’s virtual assistant.
